Newcastle have named an 18-man extended team for their Round 5 clash against Melbourne at AAMI Park on Friday night.

Akuila Uate returns from a hip injury, and replaces Kevin Naiqama on the wing, whilst Adam Cuthbertson returns to an extended interchange bench after also missing last weekend's game.

Kurt Gidley, who made a surprise return last week from a shoulder injury, is named at five-eighth, moving Jarrod Mullen to half-back.

Neville Costigan is named in the starting side, moving Alex McKinnon back to the bench.
