Titans Coach Justin Holbrook says Tanah Boyd will slot straight into the team without disruption, with the young half to replace Ash Taylor in the side for the round nine match against Wests Tigers.

"He's (Boyd) looking forward to playing that's for sure," Holbrook said.

"He's an energetic guy that loves his footy so he will do a good job for us.

"He's already played two games for us in the halves and he has had another full pre-season there and he'll do the job for us.

Holbrook says Taylor will take a week off as he rests his body.

"He's still battling with his hips and he couldn't get through training properly the other day so he's got to get himself right.

"When he is at our best we are a better team but at the minute he has been battling through."

Jayden Campbell will have to wait another week for a potential NRL debut, with the youngster to make the trip to Sydney in the extended squad.

"He came into the 21 as I thought AJ (Brimson) might have been struggling, but he has gone through the week really good and is completely fine."

Tino Fa'asuamaleaui returns to the Titans side after two weeks off due to suspension, with Holbrook saying he is a big inclusion.

"Fantastic, it's just the presence he brings and the competitiveness he has in him.

"The minute he came to training I was like mate slow down, calm down so I just knew what I was going to get from him.

"He's fantastic for us and will be a huge lift for our team.

"For a young guy, he has just turned 21, he sets some unbelievable standards not just for himself but for everyone around him."

After leaking points over the last few weeks, the Titans coach says it is a simple focus ahead of the Tigers clash.

"Defending together," Holbrook said.

"I said after the game (against the Broncos), I thought we attacked as a team and defended by ourselves and we made reckless decisions individually and made it too hard on ourselves so we've got to fix that up."
