Titans star Jai Arrow headlines a cavalry of reinforcements returning for the Gold Coast as they look to restore pride against the St George Illawarra Dragons at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium this Saturday.

Arrow was a runaway early leader in the Titans Members Player of the Year Award after a blistering start to the season before suffering a syndesmosis injury against the Warriors in Round 14 that has kept him sidelined for nearly two months.

Now the Queensland State of Origin lock is back to shore up the middle third for a Titans team desperate to make amends for last week’s disappointing display against the Roosters.

Joining Arrow in the team will be fullback AJ Brimson, who missed the Roosters game with a hip injury. He will slot straight back into the No.1 jersey, replacing Michael Gordon who injured his hamstring at the SCG on Sunday.

Prop Jack Stockwell is another Titan to join the injured list, with a damaged wrist ruling him out of the Dragons game. Jai Whitbread will make the shift from lock to the front row.

Jesse Arthars is the other player making his return to the Titans team, being named on the wing for his first game since Round 15 to replace Anthony Don, who remains part of the extended 21-man squad.

Kevin Proctor retains sole leadership of the Titans team with Tyrone Roberts, Ryan James, Shannon Boyd, Dale Copley, Keegan Hipgrave, Will Matthews and Tanah Boyd joining Gordon and Stockwell as the Titans unavailable through injury.
