iSelect Titans Coach John Cartwright has named a 21-man squad for Saturday night’s trial match against the North Queensland Cowboys at Virgin Australia Stadium, Mackay.
Co-captains Nate Myles and Greg Bird have been named to play their first pre-season trial matches of 2013, while experienced prop Luke Bailey will make his comeback from a torn Achilles tendon suffered last year.
Cartwright has named Albert Kelly and Aidan Sezer as the starting halves combination, with Jordan Rankin the other playmaker on an extended bench.
With hooker Beau Falloon ruled out of the match with a minor knee injury, former under-20s hooker Sam Irwin has been included on the bench in what is expected to be a shared role with starting No 9 Matt Srama.
Forward Ryan James makes his return from a groin injury which ruled him out of last weekend’s trial match win over the Broncos.
Speedster Kevin Gordon has been named to play his second match in the centres, with former Grafton Ghosts flyer Anthony Don included on the wing.
The Titans will be hoping to keep their pre-season record intact after registering wins over the Broncos and Cowboys.
