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

David Fifita
Age: 23 | Appearances: 106

Coming off a season where he was named Dally M Backrower of the Year, David Fifita is the obvious name to put at the top of your selection list.  Returning to the Queensland Origin team off the back of his outstanding 2023, Fifita will again be looking to take his game to another level this season.

The game-breaking forward has had an injury disrupted pre-season and is returning from a partial pec tear sustained in December and is racing to be ready for the start of the year.

Beau Fermor
Age: 25 | Appearances: 46

After a sensational 2022 season, injury denied Beau Fermor a single minute of NRL action last season.  After impressing in the 2023 trial against the Dolphins, Fermor picked up an ACL injury in the week leading up to round one.  Now back and fully fit, the Dalby product is ready to make up for lost time.  Considered by many to be a future Queensland Origin player, Fermor slotted straight back into Billy Slater's 34-man Maroons squad for a pre-season camp.  

Jacob Alick
Age: 24 | Appearances: 4

The young forward is coming off a huge 12-month period that has seen him represent Papua New Guinea at the Rugby League World Cup and Pacific Championship and make his NRL debut with the Titans.

After being selected to make his first appearance for the Indigenous All Stars, a syndesmosis injury ruled him out of playing in the pre-season fixture.

Expected to be ready to go for round one, Alick has impressed this pre-season and will be pushing for selection in 2024.

Klese Haas
Age: 21 | Appearances: 17

After playing two games in his debut season in 2022, Haas managed 15 NRL appearances in his second season as he continued to grow as a genuine back-row option.

How fast is Haas?!

The 21-year-old has shown what he is capable of in his small taste of top-grade to date.  What can be bring in season 2024?

Joe Stimson
Age: 28 | Appearances: 107

Entering his eighth season in the NRL, Stimson is one of the most experienced options on the edge for the Titans.  Capable of playing both middle and edge, Stimson highlighted his versatility in his first season at the club.

He'll captain the Titans first trial side against the Dolphins on the Sunshine Coast.

Whether it is up front, on an edge or off the bench, expect Stimson to give his all no matter what the jersey number in season 2024.

Ryan Foran
Age: 28 | Appearances: 0

The former Australian schoolboys representative joins the Titans top-30 roster for season 2024.  After learning plenty in his first year as a full-time Titan in 2023 (part of the development list), the Future Titans graduate will be looking to gain valuable experience with Ipswich Jets in the Hostplus Cup this year as he looks to push for an NRL debut.
