New look, new blood: Emerging Titans ready to showcase next generation

Titans fans should be rest assured the rugby league future is bright on the Gold Coast.

As 14 fresh faces prepare to make their club debut in Saturday's clash against the Broncos, it's a great opportunity to witness what's to come in the talent production line.

Not only will headline acts Jayden Campbell and Toby Sexton get their first crack to own their new jerseys, but the first match of 2022 will see a number of skilled whiz kids light up Cbus for the first time... Jojo Fitita, Paul Turner and Tom Weaver, just to name a few.

Eager footy pundits will also recognise two familiar names on the team sheet... Fa'asuamaleaui and Haas; however this time round, it's the younger brothers of the two superstars the game has come to know.

20-year-old Iszac Fa'asuamaeleui - who will have older brother Tino watching on - is set to play in the last 20 minutes, showing coach Justin Holbrook what he can do as he tries to impress for a development contract with the club.

It's a more unique scenario for 19-year-old Klese Haas, preparing to potentially face-off against Brisbane enforcer Payne in a re-creation of backyard footy - this time to be played on the hallow turf of Cbus Super Stadium.

The blockbuster against the Broncos will also see a number of fresh faces who have made a name for themselves by training the house down over the pre-season get an opportunity to show what they can do on the big stage.

Burleigh back-rower Jacob Alick will start on the edge, having made the switch from Souths Logan, and will represent the Bears alongside teammate Taine Tuaupiki.

Tweed have a number of train-and-trial players in action, with Charlie Murray, Ben Liyou, Oskar Bryant, Jayden Hodges and Jaylan De Groot all getting their chance to showcase their talents.

Not to forget fellow development players Shallin Fuller and Tony Francis who will both pull on the blue and gold for the first time in their first seasons at the club.

It's an exciting time to be a Titans fan with plenty of talent coming through the pathways, ready to impress; and with their first opportunity to shine up and against the Broncos this weekend, we want our Gold Coast Legion to stand tall and be there to cheer on the next generation of talent light up Cbus Super Stadium.
