Gordon and Kelly out

The iSelect Gold Coast Titans have been hit with further injuries problems with NSW Country Origin winger Kevin Gordon and halfback Albert Kelly to miss tomorrow night's derby clash with the Broncos, joining experienced back-rowers Greg Bird and Ashley Harrison on the sidelines.

Gordon is suffering from a virus and a minor knee injury and will miss the match while Kelly has a minor hamstring strain. Former Cowboys three-quarter Kalifa Faifai Loa will debut for the Titans in place of Gordon and Beau Henry has been brought in to cover for Kelly.

Coach John Cartwright won’t decide his line-up until tomorrow with several options including Paul Carter or Nate Myles playing back row, with five players initially being chosen on the interchange bench (Carter, Luke Bailey, Matthew White, Cody Nelson and Mark Ioane) and also other players in contention.
