Ken Sio

TweetFacebookNewcastle Herald understands Nathan Ross and Ken Sio are involved in a personal duel to see who will partner centre Tautau Moga on the left edge against the Dragons at WIN Stadium .

Knights coach Nathan Brown is understood to have been disappointed with Ross’ contribution in the 38-8 loss to the Sydney Roosters and is toying with the idea of promoting Sio at his expense.

Tellingly, the two wingers alternated in the top squad during an opposed session at training on Wednesday with Ross slotting in at fullback in NSW Cup coach Simon Woolford’s side when Sio reverted to the wing outsideMoga.

Brown gave little away after the session but is expected to make a final decision between the two after Thursday’s training session.

Ross ran 12 times for 100 metres against the Roosters which is down on his usual input and copped criticism, some of it unfounded, for being out of position when Moga threw two no-look passes out over the sideline.

Complicating the issue for Brown is Sio has not been setting the world on fire on NSW Cup.

Brown did confirm he will go with four forwards on the bench against the Dragons and use co-captain Jamie Buhrer as a utility option if needed.

That rules out hooker Danny Leviand Jack Cogger’s chances of a call-up.

Backrower Aidan Guerra is carrying a leg cork from the loss to the Roosters but is not considered in any real doubt according to the coach.

“We are expecting him to be fine but we’ll see how it goes,”Brown said.

Meanwhile, Connor Watson is expected to be sidelined for the next six to eight weeks but won’t be having surgery on his injured shoulder, which popped out twicein the first half against the Roosters.

“These types of injuries, most clubs if they can go down the rehab path at this stage of the year they do that,”Brown said.

“Hopefully it rehabilitates well and he can come back in five or six weeks and it holds up for the rest of the season but only time will tell.

“It’s obviously disappointing for Connor but it gives Brock [Lamb] his chance.”
