It's been a long four months but the wait is finally over... footy is back!
The Gold Coast Titans are set to light up Cbus Super Stadium with a blockbuster Macca's local derby against the Brisbane Broncos and coach Justin Holbrook has confirmed 25 players will take to the field in the club's first trial match on Saturday night.
With a good mix of regulars and train and trial contenders in the extended squad, 14 players are set to pull on the blue and gold jersey for the first time; putting their pre-season efforts to the test in an attempt to impress Titans coaching staff ahead of Round 1 on Saturday, March 13.
The Broncos have named an almost-full strength side to travel down the highway, with Kotoni Staggs, Thomas Flegler, Patrick Carrigan and Kurt Capewell all set to line-up. The Haas brothers will also face-off on opposite sides of the field as older brother Payne takes on Gold Coast youngster Klese.
