When Herman Ese'ese runs out on Suncorp Stadium tonight everything old will be new again.
The former Newcastle Knight, Canterbury Bankstown Bulldog and Brisbane Bronco spent his high school years at Wavell State High School and played for the Broncos in 2016-17.
But there will be no welcome mat when Herman and his teammates hit Suncorp Stadium looking to make it four Macca's Local Derbies in a row.
For Ese'ese it has taken a few more weeks than planned to crack the Titans NRL side, but he has no intentions of wasting the opportunity.
"(I was) obviously grateful when I found out I was making my debut for this great club and I can't wait to run out there," Ese'ese said.
"I just want to do my job. I will be pretty nervous but coming up against the old team, I am just excited and can't wait."
Ese'ese will become Titan #163 when he runs out at 7:55pm tonight.
