It has taken a couple of months to get them all back on the paddock together, but Brian Kelly says he and his fellow 'left-siders' are building their combinations nicely ahead of the 2021 season.

Kelly was the winner of the Paul Broughton Medal in 2020 as the Titans Player of the Year, where he, Ash Taylor and Phil Sami built a dynamic combination on the Titans left-hand side attack.

As the team transitions its training into more football-focused and less conditioning, Kelly and co want to improve on what they built last year.

"There has been a few little combinations out there with Corey (Thompson) and Phil (Sami) and if we can move forward from what we did at the back of last year to this year, that would be great.

As to whether he will keep Phil Sami as his wing partner or possibly lose him to the vacant centre spot on the other side of the field, Kelly was hopeful he could keep his longtime teammate and friend.

"At the moment he (Sami) is training with me there, so we love a good muckaround because we played under 20s together.

"At the moment he is there so we will see how we go.

Last to re-join the group was five-eighth Ash Taylor, who reveled in the extra space afforded to him in the number 6 jersey.

"The last week he (Taylor) has been back to full training.

"I think he has been struggling with the hip and groin(injuries), but it is good to have him back there and build on that combination again.

Kelly was asked as to which backrower would be joining he, Sami and Taylor, but at the moment he is none the wiser, as the coaches try out different combinations.

"Kevvie (Proctor) has been there and Davie (Fifita), Beauy (Fermor) he has been mixing it up as well, so there is a good mixture and there is a good fight for all of the positions this year and I am looking forward to what is ahead (this season).

Like many Titans players Kelly knows there is a lot of competition for spots in 2021 and with only the two centre spots available wants to cement his own spot first.

"I have got to keep my own spot as well, I have got to make sure I am doing my job as well because no spot is safe here in the squad.

"We've got young Patty (Herbert) and Treymain Spry, so there is the three of us all fighting for the positions, which is exciting.
