Dale Copley has been named to make his return for the Titans in the centres for the Gold Coast’s clash with the Panthers in Penrith on Friday night.

The 27-year-old was a late withdrawal from the side’s loss to Manly a fortnight ago with a calf injury. But Copley has been named by coach Garth Brennan to make his return at his preferred position of centre against the Panthers.

With Copley returning, Jesse Arthars drops out of the 17, but the 20-year-old remains in the 21-man squad.

In other changes, Jack Stockwell will start at prop with Jarrod Wallace moving to lock forward.

Jai Whitbread remains in the side, but will start from the interchange bench.
