The Gold Coast Titans will be 1-17 to start the 2021 NRL Premiership season with coach Justin Holbrook keeping the team named earlier in the week.
Patrick Herbert will become Titan #159, David Fifita #160 and Tino Fa’asuamaleaui #161 as all three make their Club debut’s against the Warriors.
Herbert will line up on the right side, with winger Anthony Don outside him, while the left flank will see Corey Thompson on the wing and reigning Paul Broughton Medallists Brian Kelly in the centres.
Fifita and Fa’asuamaleaui make up a formidable Titans pack, joining representative players Jarrod Wallace, Moeaki Fotuaika and Captain Kevin Proctor in the starting side.
Further punch will come from the bench, with Jaimin Jolliffe and Sam Lisone to rotate through the middle.
Ash Taylor and Captain Jamal Fogarty will be looking to build on the combination formed in 2020, with the two to line up in the halves, while Mitch Rein (hooker) and AJ Brimson (fullback) make up the Titans spine.
Taylor will play his 100th NRL match, with his 100th Titans match to follow next week.
Tyrone Peachey and Erin Clark give coach Justin Holbrook versatility off the bench.
The Titans will be looking for a Club record six-straight wins and more importantly a victory to start their 2021 campaign when the match against the Warriors kicks off at 2pm (Qld) at Central Coast Stadium.
