Titan’s Coach Justin Holbrook says he is expecting Tyrone Peachey to stand up and put in a strong performance against the Dragons, with the utility to move from the bench to a starting role.
Holbrook says Peachey hasn’t been playing his best footy, but now gets an opportunity at lock with Moeaki Fotuaika out of the team (suspended).
“He (Peachey) hasn’t been great over the last few games and he knows that,” Holbrook said.
“I really need him to stand up and he has the opportunity to start this week so I’m really hoping he has a big game for us and contributes massively in the middle of the field.
“I’ve been critical of how he has played the last couple of weeks, but it is a difficult position to be in when you’re sitting on the bench and you’re not knowing what time you’re going to go on or in his case what position.”
The team is expected to line up as named, with all players getting through unscathed in the Titans Captain’s Run on Thursday.
“I’m expecting we will be as per named, which is good.
“It’s pretty obvious we’ve got some key troops out but what we’ve named we can run with and that’s good knowing we’ve been able to train that way this week and we’re ready tonight for a tough game against the Dragons.”
