White to miss 2 games, Ioane in side

The iSelect Titans have taken an early guilty plea on the grade two dangerous throw charge issued for Matt White’s tackle on Penrith’s Adam Docker last night. The charge’s 243 demerit points means White will miss two matches.

White joins the injured fellow front-rower Luke Bailey on the sidelines and his place in the 17 will be taken by Mark Ioane who has been in excellent form for the Burleigh Bears.

There are no other changes to the Titans’ preliminary side announced today to take on Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday.

Bailey (ankle) and fullback William Zillman (hamstring) will miss at least one more match, but are hopeful of being fit for round 9’s clash with South Sydney at Cbus Super Stadium on May 10, after an extra week’s break after the representative weekend.
