Team news: Fifita confirmed, two debutants on extended bench

It's official. David Fifita is set to return for Friday night's Macca's local derby against the Brisbane Broncos.

Overcoming a Grade 2 MCL sprain on his right knee that kept him out for three weeks, the Origin forward was able to get through this week's training sessions unscathed and has been given the green light by Titans medicos to take on his former club at Suncorp Stadium.

Unfortunately, as reported by coach Justin Holbrook on Thursday, Moeaki Fotuaika has been sidelined with a low-grade AITFL sprain and is a late scratching for the derby, with a late reshuffle seeing Sam Lisone named to start.

Two Gold Coast new recruits are an outside chance of making their club debuts after remaining on the extended bench, with Paul Turner and Aaron Booth staying in the squad to travel to Suncorp Stadium.

The final 17 will be named one hour before kick-off.
