Titans duo named in Country squad ahead of City clash

Titans duo Anthony Don and Tyrone Roberts have today been selected in the Country Origin squad to play City Origin in Mudgee this Sunday.

Don, a Grafton product, will be making his first representative appearance whilst Roberts, from Ballina, will be making his second appearance at this level.
