Newcastle lose Pearce for 10 weeks, look to lure Clifford as replacement

Knights prop David Klemmer also underwent an MRI scan on Monday. The news isn’t as bad for the Newcastle enforcer, who has been cleared of a major injury despite playing the last 30 minutes with a knee injury.

Klemmer is touch-and-go to play against the Gold Coast Titans on Saturday, however the six day turnaround may be a factor as Newcastle look to bounce back from their 22-13 loss to the Dragons.,

Tex Hoy is expected to miss at least two weeks with a hamstring injury, while Kurt Mann is highly unlikely to play after suffering a heavy concussion at the hands of Mikaele Ravalawa.

Knights big man Jacob Saifiti will miss 1-2 weeks after he was charged with a shoulder charge on Ravalawa in the same tackle.

In good news for the Knights, fullback Kalyn Ponga will return from injury after he had offseason surgery on a shoulder complaint that saw him miss last year’s State of Origin series.
