Fifita (Indigenous All Stars) and Herbert (Maori All Stars) played last week in the NRL All Stars match, but will line up on the same team this week.
Herbert was the lone Titans representative for the Maori side, while the Indigenous team had five Titans players, so he is looking forward to playing together with his new teammates this weekend.
"I am fairly keen to play the boys down at Lismore and to play with the Indigenous boys that I just played against. Herbert said.
"We walked away as friends after the weekend and I am pretty keen to play with them this weekend in Lismore."
Fellow new recruits Herman Ese'ese and Sam McIntyre wont feature this week.
Ese'ese played in the trial match against Burleigh last weekend, getting in valuable minutes ahead of round 1, while McIntyre is still on the injured list after hurting his foot around Christmas time.
McIntyre isn't far away from seeing some action though with Titans High Performance Manager, Klint Hore saying he will be ready for local trials next week.
"He's a hard one because he's like a bull at a gate, he's brought plenty of energy amongst the squad but he has had his load monitored," Hoare said.
"He'll return hopefully next week in the Burleigh against Tweed game and he should be around for round one."
