Newcastle Knights have their sights set on securing a home final ahead of their trip to Cbus Super Stadium to face Gold Coast Titans on Friday. The season is over for the Titans, while the Knights have booked a spot in the finals. Can Newcastle now hold onto sixth spot on the ladder?

Titans Form & Team News


Gold Coast have got going a little too late with the Titans winning four games in a row - but only after their finals chances had been ended. Now the Titans have a shot at equalling a club-record five consecutive wins.

Wins over St George Illawarra Dragons, Canterbury Bulldogs, Brisbane Broncos and Manly Sea Eagles have taken the Titans to 8-11 for the season. All four wins have come against bottom eight sides, but can Gold Coast doing against a finals contender?

Brian Kelly returns in the centres after an ankle injury, forcing a switch with Treymain Spry shifting to wing and Corey Thompson named in the reserves. Nathan Peats is a chance to play after being named among the reserves.

1. Alexander Brimson 2. Anthony Don 3. Brian Kelly 4. Young Tonumaipea 5. Treymain Spry 6. Ashley Taylor 7. Jamal Fogarty 8. Jarrod Wallace 9. Mitch Rein 10. Moeaki Fotuaika 11. Kevin Proctor 12. Sam Stone 13. Tyrone Peachey 14. Tanah Boyd 15. Sam Lisone 16. Jai Arrow 17. Jai Whitbread 18. Darius Farmer 19. Corey Thompson 20. Phillip Sami 21. Nathan Peats

Knights Form & Team News


Newcastle moved up to sixth last week with a 42-18 victory over the Dragons seeing the Knights leapfrog South Sydney Rabbitohs on the ladder.

A 12th win for the season would guarantee the Knights a home elimination final, something of an incentive to take into the last game of the regular season.

The Knights welcome back centre Bradman Best into the starting line-up after an ankle injury, and Edrick Lee is named on the wing after taking personal leave.

Newcastle are further boosted by hooker Kurt Mann's return from suspension, while Sione Mata'utia comes into the back row for the injured Lachlan Fitzgibbon. Chris Randall drops to the bench, where he is joined by Brodie Jones.

1. Kalyn Ponga 2. Edrick Lee 3. Enari Tuala 4. Bradman Best 5. Hymel Hunt 6. Mason Lino 7. Mitchell Pearce 8. David Klemmer 9. Kurt Mann 10. Daniel Saifiti 11. Sione Mata’utia 12. Aidan Guerra 13. Mitchell Barnett 14. Chris Randall 15. Jacob Saifiti 16. Herman Ese’ese 17. Brodie Jones 18. Josh King 19. Gehamat Shibasaki 20. Starford To’a 21. Jirah Momoisea
