iSelect Titans forward Mark Ioane will make his NRL debut after being named on the interchange bench for Sunday’s clash with the New Zealand Warriors.
His first game in Titans colours comes in familiar surroundings with the Auckland born forward having played for the Warriors in the U20’s premiership triumph in 2010, with the announcement catching Ioane by complete suprise.
It has been a long wait for Ioane to breakthrough for his debut, and the forward said he had to show great patience when confined to the sideline in his time at the Warriors and the Canberra Raiders.
With the Auckland born forward making his debut in front of his family and friends, Ioane is bracing himself for the ticket requests that come with the news of his NRL debut.
Titans TV spoke to Ioane following the announcement and to view the video simply press play in the viewer above.
