Titans to play dual trial matches on same day

TITANS fans will get to cheer on their team twice in one day during the trial period next year.

It’s been confirmed, two Gold Coast teams will take to the field on Saturday, February 13.

One will battle the Parramatta Eels in dry heat in Alice Springs, while the other side will meet the Warriors in New Zealand’s beautiful Bay of Isles.


Titans coach Neil Henry is excited about the challenge.

“It’s great to take a trial match between two NRL teams to Whangarei, a wonderful part of the world, and give the people up there first-hand access to some top-line players,” he said.

“There should be a lot of interest in the match as we also have a strong Kiwi contingent at the Titans with Kiwi internationals Josh Hoffman, Eddy Pettybourne and Zeb Taia and former Warriors players in Nathan Friend, Matt Robinson, Nathaniel Peteru and Agnatius Paasi.”

The dual trial matches will come a week after the side battles for the Auckland Nines trophy.

A week later, on February 20, the Titans will meet the Rabbitohs at Pizzey Park in Miami.
