Ten newcomers in team to play Warriors

The Titans team to play the Warriors at Clive Berghofer Stadium at Toowoomba this Saturday night (7pm kick-off) includes a mixture of youth, experience, newcomers and eight players who represented the club in 2014.

Neil Henry has rested several key players but will unleash some exciting young talent against the Warriors with newcomers Davin Crampton, David Hala, Lachlan Burr, Matt Robinson, Kierran Moseley, Ryan Simpkins plus Leva Li, Jai Ingram, Agnatius Paasi and Damien Sironen who are trialling for contracts.

The key positions and the halves and hooker will be taken by youngsters Jamal Fogarty, Kane Elgey and Christian Hazard.

Jamie Dowling makes his return from almost 12 months out with a knee injury in the centres, joining last year’s NRL players Anthony Don (fullback), Kalifa Faifai Loa, Matt White, Ben Ridge, Mark Ioane, Ryan James, James Roberts, Brad Tighe and Matt Srama in the squad.

Ridge, James and Srama are also returning from long term injuries.

Meanwhile, five-eighth Aidan Sezer has suffered a small fracture in the orbital bone around the eye socket and will miss the match. However, he is expected to be fit for the NRL season opener against Wests Tigers on March 7 and may play in the final trial against the Cowboys in Cairns on February 21.
