Cartwright reveals selection insights

iSelect Titans coach John Cartwright has named three 2014 recruits in his team to open the 2014 Telstra Premiership campaign against the Cronulla Sharks at Remondis Stadium on Monday night. Centres Brad Tighe (from Penrith) and Maurice Blair (Melbourne) will form a new combination in the three-quarters and utility forward Paul Carter (Canterbury) has been chosen on the bench.

Prop Luke Douglas will play his 195th consecutive NRL match, breaking Jason Taylor’s record for the most successive games in the game’s club history. His debut was in the opening round for the Sharks in 2006.

Co-captain Nate Myles will play his first match since returning from Australia’s World Cup campaign while hooker Beau Falloon also goes into the season without any pre-season action.
