Titans team for NRL Rd One clash against Sharks

THREE Titans recruits will step out in the blue and gold for the first time in the NRL Round One clash with the Sharks.

Coach John Cartwright has named Brad Tighe, Maurice Blair and Paul Carter to make their debut for the Gold Coast at Remondis Stadium on Monday night.

Tighe (from Penrith) and Blair (Melbourne) will form a new combination in the three-quarters and utility forward Carter (Canterbury) has been chosen on the bench.


Prop Luke Douglas will play his 195th consecutive NRL match, breaking Jason Taylor’s record for the most successive games in the club’s history. With a sense of coming full circle, his debut was in the opening round for Cronulla in 2006.

Co-captain Nate Myles will play his first match since returning from Australia’s World Cup campaign while hooker Beau Falloon also goes into the season without any pre-season action.
