Catalans Dragons back-rower Zeb Taia will join National Rugby League side Gold Coast Titans for the 2016 season.

Taia, 30, has impressed in Super League since his arrival from Newcastle Knights for the 2013 campaign, and is Catalans' leading try scorer in 2015 with 11.

He will switch places with versatile forward Dave Taylor, who will move to Perpignan from the Titans next term.

"It's an opportunity I couldn't refuse," Taia said.

"I appreciate Catalans allowing me to return to the NRL. We have enjoyed our stay here and my goal here was to be one of the influential players in the team.

"In my first two seasons, we made the finals which has been rewarding."
