Kevin Gordon and Ryan James will return to the Aquis Gold Coast Titans side to play the Manly Sea Eagles next Monday night (7pm) but halfback Kane Elgey looks certain to need another week to be fit to return from an ankle injury.

James missed the round 17 clash with Sydney Roosters before the bye, because of a shoulder injury, but will take his place in the back row with Agnatius Paasi returning his spot beside him after his best performance of the season when he played 80 minutes against the Roosters. Gordon returns to replace Kalifa Faifai Loa.

Ben Ridge takes his place on an extended bench on standby for Nate Myles who will have to get through Origin III.
