Titans monitor Zillman and Sezer ahead of Cowboys’ clash

A COUPLE of question marks hang over the Titans ahead of their Round 4 NRL clash with the Cowboys.

Coach John Cartwright will await the results of scans on fullback Will Zillman’s hamstring injury and his progress in coming days, before being able to finalise the team to play North Queensland on Monday night.

Zillman suffered the injury during Sunday’s gutsy win over the Raiders in Canberra.


Five-eighth Aidan Sezer, who missed the victory in the nation’s capital, is the other injury concern and will also be monitored in coming days.

It comes amid some good news regarding a possible recruit for the Gold Coast club.

NRL.com reports, wayward winger James Roberts will not be subjected to any additional scrutiny should the sacked Panthers star be offered an NRL contract by a new club.

Roberts was on the Glitter Strip on Monday to open discussions with the Titans and with close family ties in Albert Kelly already at the club and additional family living in and around the area, the Titans are the early front-runners to secure his services.

“He’s a rare talent and he’s got some family here at the club,” Cartwright said. “He’s got some things he needs to deal with first but as far as his football goes, he’s a rare talent.”
