Fa­mil­iar foe for Kenny- Dowall

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

NEW­CAS­TLE re­cruit Shaun Kenny- Dowall ad­mits he has to re­pay the life­line the Knights have thrown him when he makes his club de­but against for­mer club Syd­ney Roost­ers on Fri­day.

A month af­ter his con­tract was torn up by the Roost­ers fol­low­ing an il­licit drugs charge, the con­tro­ver­sial cen­tre was named in the Knights’ line- up by coach Nathan Brown on Tues­day.

Kenny- Dowall was among a host of key in­clu­sions across the com­pe­ti­tion, in­clud­ing the re­turn of a num­ber of State of Ori­gin play­ers for their re­spec­tive clubs.

The Roost­ers have turned to Con­nor Wat­son at full­back and Mitchell Cor­nish at hooker fol­low­ing while Pen­rith vet­eran Peter Wal­lace and skip­per Matt Moy­lan were in­cluded for their club’s cru­cial clash with Gold Coast. Ti­tans play­maker Kane El­gey is on an ex­tended bench.
