Sexton itching to play football

Toby Sexton was a footballer without football in 2020.

In his first year with the Titans, the former Australian Schoolboy wasn't able to showcase his game, with the Intrust Super Cup cancelled because of COVID.

After a long wait spent developing his game at training, Sexton will run out on Friday night in the Titans pre-season trial against Burleigh Bears.

"I'm so excited to play," Sexton said.

"It's been nearly 12 months since my last proper game, so I'm itching to play a proper game of footy again.

"I'm excited to put everything I've learnt into practice and go out there and have a good one."

Sexton will start at five-eighth in the trial match, lining up alongside Tanah Boyd in the halves.

"Me and Tanah are playing so I think we will try and get 60 minutes (of game time) out," he said.

"Will Brimson is playing as well and will be coming off the bench.

"It will be good being able to play with Tanah ... I think we've built a pretty good combination in the pre-season so I'm looking forward to it.

"We've always had a good combination, even last year, but with an extra year we have been able to strengthen our combination and it's good to finally play a game with each other."

Even before making his NRL debut for the Club, Sexton is eyeing off a long stay at the Titans.

"I've grown up here my whole life and there is no other club that I would rather be at," he said.

"We are the younger halves coming through ... and this trial match will be a good opportunity to put our best foot forward and hopefully test Jamal (Fogarty) and Ash (Taylor).

"I moved here from Brisbane when I was one and I've grown up here my whole life, so it (a debut for the Titans) would be massive for myself and my family as well.

On the way to an NRL debut, Sexton will also make his debut in the Intrust Super Cup in 2021.

"I can't wait to go and play against the men and test myself out.

"It's been a long time coming and I'm looking forward to it."
