Titans reigning Paul Broughton Medalist Brian Kelly has sustained a hand injury after a hot and humid first hit out against the Warriors on the weekend, while David Fifita is back in full training after an infection interrupted his training preparation in the lead up to round 1.

Titans High Performance Manager Klint Hore said the team pulled up generally well after a round 1 clash played in hot and humid conditions.

"There are a lot of bumps and bruises after a physical game with the Warriors, plus the heat and the humidity was over 74%," Hore said.

"It was tough conditions but the Warriors played in that as well.

"The boys are now rehydrated, we travelled yesterday back from Sydney, today was recovery day and review day and then we are in a short turnaround until we play the Broncos."

Unfortunately the Gold Coast side did sustain one serious injury - to strike centre, Brian Kelly.

"The one that we do have concern of is Brian Kelly," said Hore.

"In the match he sustained a fracture to the right hand.

"He will have probably a three-week return to play program now."

With Kelly now out it will open up the left centre position for the Local Derby against the Brisbane Broncos this Friday.

Unfortunately one man who won't come into reckoning is Greg Marzhew as he still recovers from a triceps injury sustained in the last trail, playing for the Burleigh Bears.

"Greg Marzhew sustained tricep injury two weeks ago now and he is on the recovery and should be available for Round 2 of the Intrust Super Cup," said Hore.

In some good news for Titans fans, Dave Fifita is now back to 100% fitness and able to train fully with the squad ahead of his first game against his old club, the Brisbane Broncos, this Friday night. 

"David Fifita is fine now - he had a skin infection leading into the game against the Warriors.

"He spent a couple of nights in hospital...and he is in full health now and ready to go for the game against the Broncos, his old team."
