Titans Team Picker is back for ’24! Click here to select your side for Round 1.

To help with your selections, has identified some of the key players that will line up in the middle this season. 

Tino Fa'asuamaleaui

Age: 23 | Appearances: 90

The first picked and consistently one of the Titans best since arriving on the Gold Coast, the Captain is a must pick for your "team picker" side.

The big question though, is do you have him in the #8 or #10 or is he lining up at lock in your squad?

Set to notch the 100 NRL game milestone in 2024, the 23-year-old is entering his fourth season on the Coast.  Already established as a key representative player for both Australia and Queensland, Fa'asuamaleaui is one of the best young forwards in the game and a leader of the Titans pack.

Moeaki Fotuaika

Age: 24 | Appearances: 121

Named Paul Broughton Medallist for the second time after a stellar 2023, Moeaki Fotuaika is another that will feature in almost every side that fans or members select.

The hard working prop has the runs on the board and continues to be one of the quiet achievers in the competition.  His form in 2023 saw him return to the Origin arena with Queensland and he will again be pushing for a representative call-up this season.

Isaac Liu

Age: 32 | Appearances: 249

The senior member of the Titans pack, Isaac Liu will bring up the 250 NRL game milestone in round one of the competition.  A premiership winner with the Sydney Roosters, Liu enters his third season on the Gold Coast in 2024.

In 249 games, just 51 have been starting in either the #8 or #10 jumper, the the majority of games (106) played at lock.

Like Fa'asuamaleaui, it's more a case of which position you choose to put him into in your lineup.

Keenan Palasia

Age: 27 | Appearances: 53

'I hope to contribute to a winning culture': Palasia

Joining the Titans in the off-season, Keenan Palasia has been called out multiple times by team-mates as the one that has impressed over the Christmas break.

After making the Grand Final last season with the Broncos, Palasia joins the Titans full of confidence and ready to make an impact as he returns to his home city.

One of the most versatile members of the pack, Palasia has shown that he is capable taking on a host of roles in his NRL career to date.  Will he be picked in the front row, on an edge, at lock or as an impact player off the bench? 

Jaimin Jolliffe

Age: 27 | Appearances: 69

Since making his debut in 2020, Jolliffe has been one of the Titans most consistent players.  "Jimmy" has fast become a Titans fan favourite for his no-nonsense attitude and hard work approach.

After injury limited him to just nine games in 2023, Jolliffe will be looking to make a big impact under new coach Des Hasler.

The 27-year-old has predominantly played off the bench in his 69 career games to date, but has also proven more than capable of setting the tone early when given his opportunity in the starting side.

Iszac Fa'asuamaleaui

Age: 22 | Appearances: 13

This time last season, Fa'asuamaleaui was part of the Titans development roster and still yet to make his NRL debut.

Fast forward 12-months, and the younger brother to club captain Tino has managed 13 games of first grade and graduated to the Titans top-30 squad.

After a strong performance in the Hostplus Cup in 2023, Fa'asuamaleaui will be looking to back him his rookie season with some strong performances in 2024.

Josiah Pahulu

Age: 19 | Appearances: 0

In a forward pack stacked with talent, this is one player that has Titans fans excited.  The Future Titans System product has impressed plenty over the off-season, with many suggesting a debut could be on the cards for the teenager in 2024.

Future Titans a proven pathway for Pahulu's rise to top squad

A former Australian Schoolboys prop, Pahulu will have his eyes on a first grade debut after being named 18th man for the Titans’ Round 27 clash against the Bulldogs last season.  Making his Hostplus Cup debut at only 18 years of age in 2023, injury plagued the National Schoolboy Cup-winning captain for a majority of this season, but Pahulu is back to full fitness and is ready to approach the new season with added motivation to continue his progression to the NRL.  He graduates from the development list to the top-30 squad in 2024.
