Ponga ruled out of Knights Friday night match

Newcastle Knights Captain, Kalyn Ponga, has been ruled out of this Friday’s clash with the Gold Coast Titans.

The fullback was taken from the field after a tackle from New South Wales halfback Nathan Cleary during Sunday’s State of Origin match in Perth.

The Bunker determined the knock was a category one concussion.

The determination means Ponga will be on the sideline for seven days, ruling him out of Friday’s match.
