Titans winger Jonus Pearson was one of the standouts for the Burleigh Bears in their win over the PNG Hunters at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday.

Pearson had a knee injury (MCL) that forced him to the sidelines in recent weeks, but he is again pushed his claims for an NRL return, scoring a try in Burleigh's 40 points to 6 win over the PNG Hunters. 

"It's my second week back from the injury," Pearson said.

"It was good to get out there, it has been a while but I'm just glad I'm out there.

"Against a team like PNG the boys needed to get stuck in and we did."

The Burleigh team also featured Titans players Tanah Boyd and Anthony Don and it their experience, especially playing at Cbus Super Stadium, helped against their opposition.

"We had the experience of 'The Don' in our team and he got a double and it was good to see him back but we'd like to see him back up in the top grade," Pearson said.

"It was a good win for us at Burleigh and now we've got a week off and then move on to the next one."

Pearson played in the Titans round six loss to Manly, his only NRL start for 2021.

He'll be looking to add to his 23 career NRL games over the back half of the year with the Gold Coast side.
