‘Dougie’ returns after his ASADA ban that ended his all-time competition record of 215 successive gains. He has trained superbly in the off-season and is out to start the season with a flyer. With props Matt White and Davis Hala missing, and Nate Myles as lock, extra responsibility lies on his square shoulder and he has to lead the way against the aggressive young Tigers pack.

The bearded Woods has become an international and NSW Blues regular and the Titans have to stop his offload and strong carry – he is their go-forward spearhead. An average of nearly 150 metres per game is outstanding and at 24 he is still improving as a prop. Danger man, along with Tigers skipper Robbie Farrah and the young, aggressive teammates.
