Payne and the Haas: Klese to take on older brother as Broncos reveal line-up

It'll be like a backyard footy match for the Haas brothers at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday night, as the pair face off on opposing sides in the blockbuster local derby clash.

19-year-old Klese - younger brother to New South Wales and Australian representative Payne - has had an outstanding pre-season at Parkwood and has been rewarded with an opportunity to audition for a development contract at this Saturday's trial match against Brisbane.

The back-rower has been at Titans HQ over the last few months on a train and trial deal after previously being part of the Future Titans program as a junior. He also played a pivotal role in the forward pack for Keebra Park during his senior years at school.

But making the job a little harder on the other side of the field will be his older brother, Payne, who has been named to make his first appearance in 2022 as part of the star-studded Broncos line-up making the trip down the M1 to take on the Titans.

Haas excited for chance to be a Titan

Klese humbly admitted he felt his brother was better than him in an interview last year, but Saturday's clash will ultimately determine who is the best Haas.

The Titans are set to unveil their squad to face the Broncos on Thursday.
