Titans five-eighth Ash Taylor is on track to be back on field in time for the Gold Coast's pre-season clash against the New Zealand Warriors in February.

The game, to be played at Lismore's Oakes Oval, could see Taylor line up in the number six jersey as he continues to recover well from off-season surgery.

Titans High Performance Manager Klint Hoare says Taylor is now back training with the main group after having surgery on both hips and wrist after the season finished.

"He integrated back into the team after Christmas," Hoare said.

"He's giving a lot of energy across the training paddock, in the gym he is lifting really well and his movement capacity is increasing.

"He is on track to hopefully play the trial against the Warriors (in Lismore)."

Another on track to return in Lismore is Sam McIntyre, with the new recruit training well as he recovers from a foot injury.

"Sam picked up a little stress fracture in the foot over Christmas," Hoare said.

"He has been training superbly before Christmas and his excitement to be at the Club probably saw him push too hard before Christmas.

"He is integrating into some mini skills work and certainly doing some strength work in the gym.

"He'll also hopefully be back for that trial against the Warriors."

AJ Brimson is on track to be ready for round one, with the Queensland Origin fullback gradually adding to his training.

"He's back into his third week of post surgery running and we've just integrated him into some conditioning with the rest of the team and he handled that well."

Hoare says he is happy with the squad's conditioning, as skills and contact training increases as the season approaches.

"On the field we are moving away from traditional conditioning work and moving to rugby league specific stuff," he said.

"We're ramping up contact work and opposed work but we're also integrating fitness work in there as well.

"I'm really happy with how they're tracking ... and some really positive signs."
