Late Mail: Herman hoping to haunt old side

A former Knight could be the chink in Newcastle's armour tonight, with illness forcing a late change to the Titans line-up.

Herman Ese'ese will move onto the bench, with the 27-year-old to come up against his old side for the first time after moving to the Coast last season.

He will replace Jaimin Jolliffe, with the reliable prop to miss the game through illness.

David Fifita will make his return via the bench, with the explosive back-rower fit and ready to fire after overcoming a knee injury.
