And what would the players be unhappy at??

There is no doubt that the boys try hard week in and week out and their level of commitment and attitude to turn up each week to play is unquestionable. Many a game they could role over and let the points be racked up but they stick it out.

To me, we struggle due to a shear lack of size and physicality. We are not a big side, especially in the forwards. But signs are bright in terms of players stepping up. GL, TRD and Kelly in the backs all have bright futures along with Josh and David Fauid. I will be interested to see where we recruit in terms of forwards and size. Keanu Dawson gone, Jonah Haas is aggressive and big but lacks discipline, Sam Elliot is another player in similar mold of player we have now, Sam Swift is not the biggest of lads, but a great ball player. We need a couple players built like Sipley or Asofa-Solomona etc.

Agree renegadeGC it has been an issue for years with the titans we always seem a lot smaller especially in the forwards and teams seem to roll over us we just need a few big boppers on the production line, but don't get me wrong our guys although smaller always give 110% commitment and that's what wins them games there attitude and work for each other

Have to reply to this.... Think you missed my point. Never said they don't give anything but 110%. Just saying there is going to be a few signing elsewhere next year.......

Oh I wasn't reply to that, was just my thoughts in general in terms of size and physicality etc. And each to their own in terms of opinions etc.

I'm not to phased if players look else where, rugby league is a business and players need to look after them selves. Im pretty sure our recruitment will have the players we want to keep locked up.

If others go then so be it, lol no skin off my nose. To be blunt I would be happy to see a few go :)

Yes he is certainly entitled to his opinion but apparently my opinion is unwelcome that's why I'm leaving not cause I'm a sook, just over the whole forum thing anyway
Mate, I'm the Forum cynic and resident old fart so everyone takes shots at me but strangely enough it's the obtuse opinions that keep the communtiy alive ... man-up and keep 'em at it.

On topic, if we don't have a view towards keeping every possible player that we can then we become ... Parra-bloody-matta.

And I totally agree that we need size. Is it too much of a stretch that we kick the fugging Tigpies out of Keebra and keep ours.? Or is possible that Rohan Smith, or HS for that matter, start raiding the stocks of North Island high schools? Why don't we identify the better Kiwi nurseries and do a Tigpies on them?

I should have reworded correctly.. lol not necessarily get rid of all the players, but having the ability to retain the top end players from the SEQ and Northern NSW region. I believe we are making inroads in to NZ, with a number of players having signed with us. Some big bobbas would do nicely lol. From what I have heard there may also be someone in NZ now working on behalf of the Titans to set up an academy of some sort as well.

As for Tigers, they blanket cover a lot of kids from NZ. Give them part scholarships with the hope of getting 3 or 4 good ones out of about 40. This is good for them, but not for the kids themselves. Most come over thinking that they have made the big time because they get offered a scholarship to Benji Marshalls school Keebra. Not only do the kids think this but so do the parents. Welfare and care of the players isn't big on their list and you wonder why there is so depression amongst young kiwi and polynesian players. The kids and parents need to be educated on the realities of football. 2% will go on and play topside. 8% will make NYC.

Im all for getting and signing kids from NZ. But not uprooting and bringing them over when they 14-15 etc. I think we(Titans) are doing a better job at this than most. Bostyn for example moves over this year at age of 17 (they should be some what more mature and able to handle being away from friends and family).

Sure RGC, I get all of that ... I brought PNG players down during my coaching days and understand the issues that need to be addressed, however, with careful selection, honest negotiations and due diligence on player maintenance all of those issues can be solved. I make this point because we don't need a flood of such talent, just a shoring-up of our own resources.

Watched the 20s game today both Burleigh and NYC. Burleigh did well to fight back from such a deficit and also missing a lot of players.

As for the NYC game, lol where do i start. Good to get the win, but was a very very poor standard of footy. Simple errors and loose carries from both sides. At times it seemed like it was a battle of who wanted to lose the most.

Injuries to Kelly and GL... lol Konrad (aka Manly Addison) is an animal scored 3 tries, ran over huddo for his last try, previous one he ran over the whole right edge.

Very lucky to get away with the win, lol the ref had a major blunder, and lucky for us by disallowing the last try to Manly which would have tied the game.

Ahhh well onwards and upwards I guess and 2 points is 2 points. Boys looked happy to walk away with the win. Fingers crossed GL and Kelly injuries aren't to serious.

On another side note, be interesting to see the make up of our 20s for next year. Only ones I can think of off the top of my head who are playing and eligible are TRD, Kelly, Wright, Pelo and GL.

Nathan Watts should also be there again next year, he was very good early before getting hurt, Ethan Page is another who is currently injured who should be back, Jed Cartwright also, and a number of very talented MM boys from this year will be coming through such as Ethan Roberts, Josh Fauid, Jerome Veve etc.

Forgot the best of the lot being Max Elliot, he will be there next year, as will his equally talented young brother as well as Brett Stratton

Second underdog victory by U20s
http://www.titans.com.au/
By Neil Cadigan

The Gold Training Titans under-20s have secured a second top-five team scalp in successive rounds by beating fifth-placed Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles 22-18 at Pizzey Park this afternoon.

But they had to withstand a nervous finish to the match, with what appeared a score-squaring Manly try controversially disallowed with 40 seconds remaining, after a converted Eagles’ try two minutes earlier had ensured a nervous finish.

Manly right left centre Addison Demetriou, who was their danger man, crossed for his second try with three minutes remaining with saw the score go from 22-12 to 22-18.

Then it was right centre Jesse Ramien who got to the line as full-time approached and reached for the line with his left arm as he hit the ground but the referee ruled double movement.

Yet it was a well-deserved victory by the Titans who were the better side for much of the match with the Schwass twin brothers, who have played so often at Pizzey Park with Burleigh Bears’ Colts side, prominent.

Hayden Schwass scored a double, the second when he latched onto a dummy-and-run from Daniel on the right edge to bring the Titans from 12-10 behind to 16-12 ahead 12 minutes into the second half.

Five-eighth Daniel was the creator, eight minutes later, of what became the match-sealing play when he grabbed a Manly fumble out of the air 20 metres from his own line and hared downfield. As the cover closed he held up a ball for left centre Josh Berkers, who also had a strong game, and he ran a further 40 metres to score.

“It was a telepathic thing, I just knew where he was and he’d be there in support,” Daniel smiled when talking about the Schwass-sticking play that led to the try by Hayden, whose big play from the kick-off against the Roosters led to a breathtaking victory in Gosford a fortnight earlier.

“After the previous couple of weeks when I got away and was run down I thought I’d try to hold it up for Josh and luckily he was in support and had the pace to get away,” he said of the second try.

Daniel Schwass has gathered in confidence and stature within the side in the past few weeks after coming into the five-eighth position held earlier by Karl Lawton while Hayden has consistently been one of the Titans’ best all season.

Manly had a glut of possession for the first half hour on the back of a string of penalties but some committed punishing defence held them to just one try, in the 17th minute, which gave Manly a 6-0 lead.

The Titans hit back with a try to left winger Brian Kelly, his fifth try in five days after scoring four for NSW under-20s Origin side on Wednesday night, in the 27th minute. He picked up a pass that bounced on his toes 15 metres out and stepped his winger to score a neat try in the left corner which was converted by Shaun Hudson.

Hayden Schwass gave the Titans the lead in the 33rd minute when he twisted over in a two-man tackle after a good offload close to the line from Rory Humphreys who attacked strongly all game.

Many took the lead through the powerful Demetriou 12 minutes into the second half but the Daniel Schwass-created efforts in the last 20 minutes proved the difference.

“It was a type of game where for a while it looked like neither side wanted to take the game and win it but in the last 20 minutes we showed how much we wanted it and it was a great reward for the consistent effort of these guys,” said coach Ben Woolf.

“Hayden was really good again and his two tries were important.

“It was great to beat another tip five side. We know we can beat any team. Penrith have only been beaten three times this year and we were one of those who knocked them over and we were in the game for a long while the second time we played them but ran out of troops.

“We’ve rarely not been in a match to the end and I’m proud of the way the guys have stuck at it. If just a couple of things went our way in some close games or we didn’t have the injury problems we had in some matches we could have been in the top eight but we’re not and we just have to keep plugging away like we are and climb the ladder.”

Gold Training Titans 22 (H. Schwass 2, B. Kelly, J. Berkers tries; S. Hudson 3 goals) beat Sea Eagles 18 (A. Demetriou 2, Pearsall tries; Pratt 3 goals) at Pizzey Park.

Hey Guys, i know i've been a bit MIA as of late, but did see the game yesterday, it was a very low quality of game with a lot of dropped ball, however there was patches of some great footy played by our NYC boys. As most of you will know by looking at the team lists week in that it is not our top 20s team due to injury (cartwright, watts, colman, spring) and Lawton playing QLD Cup. However the team that is playing works for me. It seems there is a lot of connection between the players playing that they would do anything for each other, and it's showing in the results. 8 close matches which have now turned into 2 straight wins. Big task travelling to Newcastle this week, hopefully the boys don't have to travel on the day as that seems to be a big downfall in their performance. Talking to burleigh Qcup coach after their depressing performance and I wouldn't be surprised to see a few of our NYC squad playing in the QLD Cup in the coming weeks which will open doors for injured guys to get back into the side i would assume.

Also it looked as though GL and Kelly were carrying injuries. So maybe a few doors opening there as well

I really feel for NYC teams and having to travel on days they play. It is tough. The NRL talks about duty of care and welfare of its players. But is making teams play on the same day as traveling and leaving at 7am to get to games, to me this is not the best of welfare if you ask me.

From what i have been told Brian Kelly re aggravated the injury that occurred against the Tigers in round 13, not sure on the seriousness of it though, and GL has a minor AC Joint injury. may miss this weeks game from what i have been told. And also agree with duty of care for teams that have to play on the same day as they travel.

Our Gold Training under-20s coach Ben Woolf will again stick with the same side that has won the past two matches when the Titans go to Hunter Stadium on Saturday for the clash with Newcastle Knights.

There is an injury doubt on winger Greg Lelesiuao and he will be monitored and a decision made after Thursday’s training session. The good news is that Zac Spring returned from a long term injury for Tweed Heads on the weekend and is a handy standby player.

Anthony Colman also returned from a knee injury and gives Woolf some good depth after the squad has been ravaged by injury for much of this season.

After beating fourth-placed Sydney Roosters and fifth-placed Manly Sea Eagles in successive games, this is another tough challenge for the Titans.

The Knights, who pipped the Titans by a point in round three after we lost four players with injury after leading 10-0, are in ninth position and desperate for victory.

The Gold Training NYC team is:

1 - Shaun Hudson (capt)

2 – Brian Kelly

3 – Rory Humphreys

4 - Josh Berkers

5 – Greg Lelesiuao

6 – Daniel Schwass

7 - Brayden Torpy

8 – Oshae Tuiasua

9 – Delayne Ashby

10 - Max Elliott

11 - Shane Wright

12 - Hayden Schwass

13 - Parahi Wilson (capt)

Interchange:

14 – Shane Gillham

15 - Daymeric Pelo

16 – Rhys Duke

17 – Chris Law

As thought side goes unchanged. GL is in a lot of doubt. In a sling waiting on scans... If that is the case I am excited to see the return of Zac Spring. Tough task against a side that beat them by 1 point in Round 3. Hopefully the boys can keep their season alive and keep the streak alive.

Sam Swift (Titans NYC contracted 19) will make his QLD Cup Debut for Burleigh Bears against Mackay on Saturday as a starting second rower, along with Jenan Wedderburn Parrish (interchange hooker 19) and Talor Walters (starting at fullback 19) also... Great rewards for guys who have been playing really good consistent footy all year for not only the FOGS 20s but also Local A Grade at burleigh. Good luck to all 3 of them.

I rate him as our top half in 20's and think that he could fill that void in the NRL side well. He played Qcup when he was 18 and would be playing it now if Woolfy allowed it.

Plays well beyond his years and shines when he has effective tools (players) to use around him. The early ball he could give Jimmy Roberts would be unreal.

tough day at the office for the boys yesterday. Cold, windy and raining however no excuse. End of the day they were lucky to keep the result to 38-10, gave a much bigger knights side too much ball and they rolled up the middle of the field at will. Brian Kelly, not his best game but will learn from that. Spring a welcome return as he played solid. Left edge which has been defensively strong the last couple of weeks seemed like something was missing which resulted in the number of tries posted down that edge. Hopefully the boys can regroup and take on the Broncos at Suncorp on Friday. Hopefully see the return of Watts? Colman?

Every player that took the field out played there opposing number by far. It was by far the best performance i have seen of a Titans NYC side. The Broncos (who have been scoring points at will) never even looked like scoring a try apart from their first try which was off the back of players slipping over and allowing Jai Arrow to cut through and score. Other than that our boys defence held solid and attacking wise was the best of the year so far... At half time I was a little nervous at 12-6, given that half time can sometimes break a teams momentum, however after the break our boys came out and completed their first 9 sets with the footy which put them in a really good position to control the game. Good to see Max Elliot get off the nudey as well, scoring his first try for the season.

Gold Training under-20s centre Rory Humphreys has been chosen to play against the Eels on Monday (4.45pm kick-off) but is in doubt with a low-grade knee injury.

Fortunately Greg Lelesiuao (shoulder), who missed last Friday’s victory over the Broncos, will be given a chance to prove his fitness, so coach Ben Woolf has good cover.

The Titans take on a big unpredictable Parramatta side they beat 40-22 in round five at Parramatta but are two points above them on the ladder.

Victory for the 14th-placed Titans, who have beaten top eight teams Sydney Roosters, Manly Sea Eagles and Brisbane Broncos in the past four rounds, would go ahead of the Eels on the ladder and Cronulla if they are beaten by the Warriors.

The Gold Coast Titans under-20s have missed a chance to jump ahead the Eels on the ladder, going down 35-22 in a tight encounter at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday night.

The first score of the day came after a clumsy Titans penalty piggy-backed the Eels down the field after starting the set on their own 10-metre-line. Some strong carries from the Parramatta forwards created space for their playmakers, with a nice ball from five-eighth Dylan Izzard putting winger Abbas Miski over in just the fourth minute.

Just three minutes later the Eels were on the scoreboard again. A fifth tackle bomb towards Titans winger Zac Spring resulted in a mistimed jump with Miski swooping on the loose bouncing ball to waltz in under the posts and score his second try with just ten minutes gone, for the Eels to lead 10-0.

After defending for the opening phase of the game, the Titans completed a clinical set, with a neat Brayden Torpy kick into touch giving the Eels the ball on their 10-metre-line. The subsequent set resulted in a Parramatta error gifting Gold Coast the ball with halfback Brayden Torpy sending a nice ball out wide to Brian Kelly who drew in a defender before passing to Zac Spring to score in the corner and make up for his earlier error.

Each side exchanged the ball for the next ten minutes, when Eels fullback Bevan French knocked on a kick just outside his own line. The Titans looked dangerous with each carry from the ensuing set, with big forward Oshae Tuiasau crashing over the line despite the attention from three defenders to level scores at 10-10 after 20 minutes.

Eels fullback French made up for his earlier error on the stroke of half-time, diving full length to gather and score an in-goal grubber which was seemingly out of bounds. The miraculous try was converted as the half-time siren sounded, giving the Eels a 16-10 lead at the main break.

Any momentum the Eels took into half-time didn’t seem to affect the Titans, with the Gold Coast side scoring through Anthony Colman just three minutes into the second half. Some neat lead up play led to Colman splitting a gap to race in under the posts and set up an easy conversion for Torpy.

Ten minutes later, a bobbling grubber from Parramatta half Zach Dockar-Clay resulted in a crucial fumble, gifted the Eels an easy four points under the posts and a six-point lead 13 minutes into the second half.

Under-20s Maroons forward Tuiasau hit back for the Titans in a replica of his first half try, using his huge frame to bust over the line despite defenders hanging all over him to even scores at 22-all with 15 minutes left on the clock.

Not long after, Eels fullback French was again in the thick of the action, pulling off another miraculous play. The dynamic number one contesting a high ball only to catch the ricochet and pass to a teammate while lying on his back. The try gave the Eels a six-point buffer and set up an exciting finish.

Despite possession in their attacking half, the Titans were unable to mount a comeback, the Eels defence holding strong in the final stages. Eels halfback Dockar-Clay slotting a field goal with just two minutes left after the Eels had gained good field position.

A desperate Titans outfit then regathered the kick-off and got the ball down to their 10-metre line, only for an attempted grubber kick to bounce off the leg of an Eels player and land in the lap of Dockar-Clay who passed to French to score a length of the field try and cap off an impressive game.

The Titans under-20s travel to Melbourne to take on the Melbourne Storm next Sunday.

Parramatta Eels 35 (Miski 2, 2 French Gafa, Stowers, Dockar-Clay 5 goals, field goal) def. Gold Coast Titans 22 (Tuiasau 2, Colman, Spring, Torpy 3 goals)

IMO where the game was lost.

Middle and ruck defence wasnt up to recent weeks standards.
Poor execution of set plays
Completions
Uncharacteristic mistakes

and i hate to say it, but it just looked like the boys didnt wana be on the field, there were a few trying their hardest but there were a few that really let the team down.

Hudson - played well, good under the high ball. Execution in attack was a bit off.
GL - looked unfit, was lazy at crucial times which resulted in tries off grubbers and was not good under the high ball at all.
Kelly - Solid game, made a few good runs out of their own half, good catch/pass to put spring over.
Berkers - Usual standard from Berkers, didnt let anyone down with anything he did, tried his hardest
Spring - Wasnt the greatest under the high ball, but was good in attack.
Schwass- Tried hard, kicked well, but hard to put a set together off a middle that is getting bashed in the ruck. few stray passes.
Torpy - Tried hard, kicking well, had some good shape that led to Springs try
Tuisau - Solid without being outstanding.
Lawton - Looked unfit, didnt play his best game.
Gillham - Got dominated in defence, in attack was not too bad. Lacked effort at crucial times.
Wright - Ran some good lines and held his own in defence.
Schwass - Usual game, worked hard and ran some good lines, strong carries.
Wilson - Only played 20 minutes or so (dont know why) but was good whilst he was on.

Duke - Good when he came on, defended solid. Would like to see more of him in attack (playing in the middle, out of position).
Colman - Ran hard and tackled hard, (playing in the middle, out of position).
Law - Usual game, electric out of dummy hard. however had a few questionable kicks (one out on the full).
Pelo - Brought in late due to Elliot being ruled out on the day. One of his better performances.

I'm very surprised that GL has been dropped, yes he may have had a poor game, however no one is perfect. If the coaching staff are selecting the side in terms of poor performances, then we probably wouldn't be fielding a team. Some what double standards and player favoritism to me.

From what I've seen GL in his previous games has been outstanding, one of the few that causes headaches for the opposition teams. Im thankful that our 20's dont have to come up against Asofa-Solomona this weekend.

Well hahaha as an arm chair coach, i guess it all depends on what the club/side is wanting to achieve from the remainder of the 20s comp. Realistically can we make play offs? Probably not. Do we want to play safe and conservative or shake the comp up a little? Do we blood younger players who will be of age next year, meaning some of the 20 year olds that aren't re-signed go back to playing Cup, or A-Grade.

Current backline -
Huddo
Spring
Berkers
Kelly
Humphries
Schwass
Torpy

How many of those are still eligible for 20's next year? Or have been offered a NRL contract or 2nd tier contract?? Only one I know of at the moment is Kelly. Correct me if Im wrong.

So back to your question lol, GL could play a number of positions, fullback due to Huddo leaving, centre for berkers who moves back to 2nd row, or wing for Spring (safe and solid). However, to throw a spanner in the works GL has played a lot of lower grade footy in the halves. So could replace Schwass or Torpy, either or. GL can play a Milford type role, just let him run. haha anyways, who knows. Be could to see the boys shake up the comp in these last few rounds.

Of the current backline Hudson is off to the cowboys on a 2 year deal and the rest other than kelly are not on any 2016 contracts anywhere as of yet...

As for GL i would be interested to see how he would go in the halves to be completely honest, it would be good to give him a license to run the ball whenever he wanted and he would really trouble defenders... could be a possibility if torpy or schwass get an opportunity in qld cup

NYC PREVIEW: Titans v Storm
http://www.titans.com.au/

Gold Training under-20s centre Rory Humphreys will again be sidelined with a shoulder and will be replaced by 18-year-old Greg Lelesiuao in tomorrow’s clash with Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park tomorrow (11.45am kick-off).

That will be the only change to the starting line-up tomorrow with Rhys Duke dropping off the originally selected six-man bench.

The Storm will be desperate for victory, needing the two points to stay in touch with eighth-placed Wests Tigers who are two points ahead on the ladder but with a for-and-against average that Melbourne can’t match.

When Ben Woolf’s side last visited AAMI Park they were 16-0 behind inside 15 minutes but then fired home to win convincingly, with the NRL following with a 28-26 victory in a great day for the club.

“We were disappointing against the Eels last week and just started too slowly, so that’s going to be a key against the Storm – coming out with good intent,” said coach Woolf.

“Rory’s shoulder hasn’t come up and he’ll be missed; he was in good form and runs strong and direct but Greg is capable of anything, although he would have been disappointed with his game last week.”

Max Elliott has recovered from a knee injury that saw him drop out of Monday night’s loss to the Eels and he will be a welcomed addition to the pack with his aggression and high workrate.

The Gold Training under-20s team is: Hudson (capt), Lelesiuao, Kelly, Berkers, Spring, D Schwass, Torpy, Tuiasau, Lawton, Elliott, Wright, H Schwass, Wilson (capt). Interchange: Gillham, Hughes, Colman, Law.

Under 20 boys playing well. The 5/8 Schwass playing well seems very mature or that not much fazes him. Bench hooker plays with plenty of energy. 30-26 to Titans after 66 minutes.

Credit where credit is due, I thought Torpy's kicking game was excellent today. Also put a few players into space with nice pass selection.

Hayden Schwass is our best player in 20's imo. I'd love to see him have an off-season with out top squad.

Disappointing loss today for our boys. I thought they were the better team today.

IMO it looks like we struggle to match opposition sides in the middle due to our size and because of this is makes it very difficult for Schwass/Torpy to play off the back of it against a set defensive line... take the two tries against the run of play off them and the game is ours... much improved effort since last weeks effort against the Eels.

Gold Training under-20s head coach Ben Woolf will reward the team that returned to winning form against Canterbury Bulldogs at Gosford on Sunday.

However, an injury cloud hangs over halfback Braydon Torpy (hip) and if he misses the match there could be a backline reshuffle.

Winger Zac Spring (back) has not been selected but could come back into calculations if he receives a good medical report.

Daniel Schwass, who played for Burleigh Bears in the Intrust Super Cup, returns to the side (Karl Lawton started at five-eighth in Gosford) while Anthony Colman and Hayden Schwass will continue in the Queensland Cup competition.

Tyronne Roberts Davis, Braydon McGrady and Jerome Veve – who were called into the side against the Bulldogs but played well – are again included in the extended squad of 20.

The Gold Training NYC team is:

1 - Shaun Hudson (capt)

2 – Greg Leleisiuao

3 – Rory Humphreys

4 – Brian Kelly

5 – Tyronne Roberts Davis

6 – Daniel Schwass

7 - Brayden Torpy

8 – Oshae Tuiasua

9 – Karl Lawton

10 - Max Elliott

11 – Rhys Duke

12 - Hayden Schwass

13 - Parahi Wilson (capt)

Interchange:

14 – Shane Gillham

15 – Shane Wright

16 – Josh Berkers

17 – Chris Law

18 – Jerome Veve

19 – Brayden McGrady

20 - Nathan Watts

Good to see Colman spending another week in QLD Cup.

Expect Brayden Torpy to miss this one with a hip pointer injury which would see Karl Lawton slip onto the bench... Both Schwass boys back from QLD Cup aswell.

Shot clock in today's NYC clash

Sun 23rd August, 09:41AM


The ‘shot clock’, which is proposed for the NRL next season, will be trialled in today’s Holden Cup clash between the Gold Training Titans and Canberra Raiders at Cbus Super Stadium.

The rule involves a strict time period for players to restart play with a scrum or line-drop-out to avoid time wasting. There will be 35 seconds allowed form the time the referee signals scrum to when it must be packed, and 30 seconds for a goal-line drop-out.

A team that fails to restart during that period will be penalised. The countdown will be posted on the electronic scoreboard for teams to be aware of how time is progressing.

If a player is injured during the period, to avoid time-wasting he will have to be removed from the field for medical attention, or attended to in back play, while play continues.

Being a Fox Sports televised game, the captain’s call rule will also apply in this match which is usual in televised under-20s games. That gives each team the opportunity to contest a referee’s decision once per half, although each time successful you retain another call.

Titans coach Ben Woolf is looking at some positional switches in his team, with halfback Braydon Torpy out with a hip injury. Daniel Schwass will move to halfback, Karl Lawton from hooker to five-eighth and Chris Law will start as hooker.

The Titans are placed 14th after just seven wins this season but five have been against teams currently in the top eight – leaders Penrith, third-placed Brisbane (by 36-6), fourth-placed Sydney Roosters, fifth-placed Manly and eighth-placed Wests Tigers.

They will be after another scalp against the sixth-placed Raiders who are without powerful centre Brenko Lee who has been called up to the Raiders’ NSW Cup side, Mounties.

However a danger man will be lock Tevita Pangai Junior who is a powerful runner and easily leads the NYC in offloads.

Kick-off is 11.45am.

Great match so far with Dan Schwass's kicking keeping the Raiders at their end of the park but the Titans defense has been awesome.

If you are at the game you should be able to hear the Raiders new fullback in Kenny Nagus yelling every call from the back of the ruck, I think he's taking over from Langer as the longest time spent on the field by a trainer :laugh:

NYC PREVIEW: Titans v Dragons
http://www.titans.com.au/

The Gold Training Titans under-20s side, like their NRL counterparts, will have several players making their last appearance for the club at Cbus Super Stadium tomorrow and are motivated to finish with a win against the Dragons in front of their home crowd.

After beating six of the current top eight sides – Brisbane, Manly, Sydney Roosters, Canberra and Penrith – the challenge for Ben Woolf’s side is to put in those sort of performances against the lower eight sides.

They are placed 12th and the Dragons are 13th but like the Titans, the Dragons have strung a few wins together in the past two months, including some against some of the top eight.

The Titans’ for-and-against record shows their true form this season, just minus 71 which is better than six other teams. Twice this season they have been beaten by a point and by two points once, and victory in two of them would have them a point out of the eight, and may have sparked more victories.

“We can’t change that but I certainly think one of two wins during that period when we lost nine straight and had injuries could have turned our season around,” said Woolf. “Our goal is to finish the season well, although we have a tough one in the last round against the leaders North Queensland.

“We were great last week and made no errors in first half except going into touch twice when they backed themselves. But the problem is we haven’t been able to win games we should win, and that’s our challenge this week.

“Some of the 20 years old realise they’re time in the Holden Cup is coming to an end and they have to go out there and play Queensland Cup or find their way outside of 20s and that provides some extra motivation to do all we can in these last two weeks – they’re a pretty close knit side.”

Braydon Torpy returns from injury at halfback and will be partnered with Karl Lawton with the Schwass brothers, Daniel and Hayden, heading back to Burleigh Bears in the Intrust Super Cup.

Woolf will be looking for another big performance from prop Oshae Tuiasau who has been tremendous ion the past month and will join the NRL squad net year.

“Oshea has stepped up his game and he has taken it upon himself to stand up and really lead from the front with some inexperienced props doing into the side,” Woolf said.

The Gold Training NYC team is:

1 - Shaun Hudson (capt)

2 – Greg Leleisiuao

3 – Rory Humphreys

4 – Brian Kelly

5 – Tyronne Roberts Davis

6 – Karl Lawton

7 - Brayden Torpy

Jed Cartwright edges towards NRL with Gold Coast Titans
TRAVIS MEYN GOLD COAST BULLETIN SEPTEMBER 04, 2015 12:00AM

ANOTHER Cartwright is edging towards the NRL with Gold Coast Titans young gun Jed to step into the top squad next season.

The son of foundation *Titans coach John Cartwright will spend the pre-season training full-time with Neil Henry’s NRL squad after piling on a staggering 14kg in the past year.

The 18-year-old is tipping the scales at a whopping 101kg as he attempts to emulate his father by developing into a powerful back-rower.

The Titans rate Cartwright so highly they yesterday extended his stay at the club until at least 2017.

And the Palm Beach Cur*rumbin graduate is hoping to put the frustrations of an injury-plagued under-20s season behind him as he continues his journey to the NRL.


“Training full-time will help me put on weight and get fitter,” he said.

“It’ll be a good experience to train with some of the older boys.

“Last year I didn’t think I’d be getting a pre-season now or playing as many 20s games as I have.

“It’s (NRL) definitely getting closer.”

Cartwright made his under-20s debut in Round 1 and played 10 games before undergoing an ankle reconstruction.

He will have a minor shoulder operation later this month but is expected to hit the pre-season running.

The speedy centre has been demolishing protein shakes, eggs and tuna while recovering from surgery, which has limited him to mostly weights sessions in the gym.
“A lot,” Cartwright said when asked what he’s been eating.

“I’m eating constantly. I wanted to get to 96kg this year then be in the 100s next year.

“I want to move into the back-row eventually. It will depend if I lose much speed or what Woolfy (coach Ben Woolf) wants me to play.

“I’m not too bothered about whether I play back row or centre.

“It’ll depend how I’m carrying the weight when I’m running.”

At 195cm, Cartwright is taller than his father, who was a damaging ball runner for Penrith, NSW and Australia.

His cousin Bryce Cartwright is rated one of the NRL’s most promising young forwards and Woolf said Jed was far from a finished *product.

“He’s a good kid. The most impressive thing with him this year was how confidently he stepped into (under-20s),” he said.

Cartwright is expected to be joined in the NRL squad for the pre-season by under-20s teammates Karl Lawton, Oshae Tuiasau and Brian Kelly.
