Schoupp excited for long-awaited Cbus homecoming

Cbus Super Stadium has a special place in Aaron Schoupp's heart and the Titans centre can't wait to return this weekend after a seven-week hiatus.

Having made his debut at the Gold Coast venue when playing for the Bulldogs in 2021, his first match at Robina in Titans colours was a standout, starring with two tries in a player of the match performance to help defeat the Melbourne Storm 38-34.

Expecting a bumper crowd back at home for their first game back in over seven weeks, the 21-year-old can't wait to get back on Saturday night, knowing the edge the passion and noise gives he and his teammates.

"All the boys are pretty excited. The last time we played there was against the Broncos quite a while ago now and I think we've only had about three home games so far," 

"We always get up when we've got our home crowd there, so it should be good for everyone and hopefully after the last couple of weeks of a few disappointing results, the home crowd can ride us home."

Reunited with his familiar edge partner Jojo Fifita on the Titans' right edge, it's a pairing the 39-gamer has relished after the back five shuffle that has taken place over the past few weeks given the immense depth in the outside backs.

"I really like playing with Jojo and I think at the start of the year, we did have good combo going being two young boys," Schoupp said.

"This week, we just got our edge going again because obviously we've had a bit of disruption lately with a bit of chopping and changing.

"Jojo and I are ready to go... we know each others' games and we know what works for us."

But despite being close with Fifita given their partnership on-field, the Origin divide still remains between the duo given Schoupp was born and raised just north of Wollongnong.

However, he does wish his fellow teammates Tino Fa'asuamaleaui and David Fifita well in Wednesday night's series opener in Adelaide.

"I'm happy for the boys here that are playing in Maroon that are my teammates, but at the same time, I'm a Blues boy who grew up down in New South Wales," he said. 

"Hopefully, the Blues can get a win."
