Aquis Titans coach Neil Henry has named an unchanged team for Saturday’s Round 24 NRL match against the Knights in Newcastle.

Henry showed faith in the same 17 that lifted club spirits and boosted the side back into the top eight with a one-point victory against the Tigers last Saturday in Campbelltown.

Hard working forward Zeb Taia returns to Hunter Stadium for the first time since linking with Gold Coast.

The 31-year-old, who worked tirelessly for 31 tackles against the Tigers, played six seasons for the Knights before a stint in Super League and is looking forward to the match-up with his old club.

Luke Douglas, who in a late change started the Tigers match from the bench, has been named in the run-on team, with Agnatius Paasi set to begin from the bench.

Halves Ashley Taylor and Jarryd Hayne will be aiming to build on their new combination which has developed over the past two rounds.

“Jarryd and Ash are both playing their role. Ash Taylor has had a wonderful year and is keen to continue it and Jarryd adds another dimension to us, he’s got the skill set to be able to worry the opposition” said Coach, Neil Henry.
