The Knights have named Mitchell Pearce and David Klemmer's replacements for Saturday's clash with the Warriors at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Following the duo's call up to the NSW Origin camp, Newcastle were granted permission to add halfback Phoenix Crossland and front rower Jirah Momoisea to the team list.

Crossland, a NSW representative halfback, comes through the club's elite academy and was recently promoted to the club's top 30.

Momoisea joined the fulltime squad on a development deal ahead of the June 30 deadline.

Jamie Buhrer and Shaun Kenny-Dowall will captain the side.
