Injury report: Fifita back fit but pain for Haas

The Gold Coast Titans welcome back one second rower but lose another for the upcoming Round 16 clash against the New Zealand Warriors.

Dubbed 'Super Hero Saturday' due to a cross-promotion with Warner Bros. Movie World, the Titans will be excited to welcome hulking edge forward David Fifita who has fully recovered from an ankle injury that kept him out of last week's encounter against the Wests Tigers in Sydney.

Unfortunately, Klese Haas has suffered a bruised heel from the same game, meaning he will now be a week-to-week prospect, with coaching staff opting for a conservative approach with the bye coming next weekend, allowing a fortnight of rest for the 22-year-old.

In good news, there is likely some reinforcements coming after the bye with AJ Brimson and Harley Smith-Shields starting to integrate into training this week, anticipating to be in the mix for selection in Round 18, when the Gold Coast head to Coffs Harbour to face the Sharks.

Titans medicos also provided the following update on players still in the casualty ward:

  • Tony Francis: Out of his sling and beginning strength recovery from his AC joint injury. Expected to be another four weeks before returning to play.
  • Jaimin Jolliffe: Recovering well from surgery to repair a pec tear, but still remains six-eight weeks away from returning to play.
  • Ben Liyou: Recently had surgery on his ruptured ACL and has begun his recovery.
  • Tino Fa'asuamaleaui: Working through recovery from his ruptured ACL as expected and will begin the running phase of his rehabilitation soon.
