Hayne's return will see Luke Burt shift back to the wing with Etu Uaisele moving to the interchange bench for the clash with the fourth placed Knights.
Hayne's return is the only change to a starting line up which also features Daniel Mortimer at five eighth, after the 19 year old was solid on debut against Cronulla on Saturday night.
