Blake returns in Knights clash

Fiji Bati centre Waqa Blake is set to start for his Parramatta Eels against the Newcastle Knights in the NRL qualifying finals on Sunday.

Blake returns from one week suspension and is ready to meet the Knights.

Meanwhile, Reagan Campbell-Gillard who sustained a groin injury is under observation while Clint Gutherson who suffered a knee injury is now good to go.

Oregon Kaufusi is listed in the reserves following a head knock and will need to pass concussion protocols this week to push his claims of being a late inclusion.

Joey Lussick is out with a calf strain with Ray Stone named to start at hooker after playing lock last week.

Will Smith sustained lip laceration but has pulled up OK and is expected to share dummy-half duties.

The Eels have won their past three games against the Knights.

The Eels will take on the Newcastle Knights at 6.05pm on Sunday.
