Douglas only injury concern

The iSelect Titans hope to field the same winning 17 from the first round victory at Cronulla, although record-breaking prop Luke Douglas will be monitored after injuring a thumb. He will be given until late in the week before determining if he will play against Wests Tigers at Cbus Stadium on Sunday (2pm).

The irony was obvious for Douglas, who broke Jason Taylor’s 194-successive game mark last night. The initial scare was tempered this afternoon when initial x-rays showed no fracture but he will have a further scan later in the week and receive ongoing treatment.

Fortunately Ryan James should be fit to come into the 17 if Douglas is sidelined.

“Typical of Luke he did not let on about the injury until after the game, although the doctor knew,” said Cartwright of Douglas who hurt the hand in his first stint during the first half but returned in the second half. Hopefully, it will be a typical story where Douglas will overcome an injury and continue his incredible run.

There appears no other injury concerns from the match.
