'We'll send Dave at him': Brimson full of banter ahead of Sexton's return

AJ Brimson has cheekily suggested it could be tough going for Toby Sexton when the former Titan returns to Cbus Super Stadium this Sunday.

Having played 17 games together before the 22-year-old's mid-season switch to the Bulldogs to claim their vacant No. 7 jersey, the Gold Coast fullback has issued a word of warning to his old teammate of what he can expect up against his 

"We might have to send Dave Fifita at him a few times this weekend," Brimson bantered.

But all jokes aside, the 98-game star is happy to see his former teammate getting consistent footy in Sydney after only playing one game for the Titans in 2023, following Tanah Boyd winning the race for the chief playmaking role in the pre-season.

"I'm looking forward coming up against him. He's obviously a good mate of mine and he's made a good move for his career," Brimson said.

"I'm definitely happy for him."

In the Gold Coast's final game of 2023, Brimson is hoping to finish the tough season on a high, aiming to culminate the past few weeks of proud performances against top four teams into a solid victory for the club's loyal Legion in Thank You Round.

"I think each week, I know we haven't come up with wins last couple weeks but we definitely haven't given in or given up and we've been right in the fight," he said.

"Nothing's going change this week, especially being back at home and especially trying to send our fans off with a win for our members round.

"It's obviously been a disappointing year, but I think finishing off on a high is somewhat sweet for the fans, especially this round in particular, so the boys be up for the game."

The 24-year-old Titan is also eager to get back home for the final game of the year, excited to run out at his most treasured venue in the NRL competition.

"I love Cbus... it's definitely my favourite place to play," Brimson said.
