Knights’ Adam Elliott Has An Update On Kalyn Ponga’s Fitness For Finals

Newcastle Knights’ Adam Elliott shares an update from the Docs on Kalyn Ponga’s fitness after he left the field on Sunday.

Talking to Hit Newcastle’s Nick, Jess & Ducko, Elliott said “He should be able to get through the game. When we found out it was an AC, we were relieved!

“Half the competition are probably carrying ACs at the moment!”

Knights had to do it the hard way on Old Boys Day at McDonald Jones Stadium this Sunday, needing a massive second half performance to get the job done.

On selection for this week, Elliott doesn’t expect there to be too many changes or players given a week off.

“Players will only be given a rest if they need a rest.”

Elliott also spoke about how far the Knights are expecting to go – which may affect his nuptials. If they make the NRL Grand Final, it will be so close to his wedding that he won’t be able to have a Bucks!

Before that, the Knights have got a big game against the Dragons before a home final the following week.

Keep it on Nick, Jess & Ducko and Hit Newcastle, for more from Adam Elliott and the Newcastle Knights, during what promises to be a HUGE finals series.
