Knights’ director of rugby Clive Griffiths has named a largely unchanged side from the one which lost out to Worcester Warriors for Sunday’s derby clash with Yorkshire Carnegie.

Upfront, Tom Davies makes his first start of the season. He replaces Richard List at loose head, joining Ben Hunter and Colin Quigley in the front row.

At lock, Jon Phelan makes his Knights’ competitive debut - switching with fellow Canadian Tyler Hotson.

The back row remains unchanged, skipper Michael Hills and Latu Makaafi start on the flanks with Alex Shaw at No.8.

The Knights’ backline will remain unchanged for a third straight game.

On the bench, Paul Roberts replaces Phil Eggleshaw, who will get gametime on loan with Hull Ionians.
