    Matthews back in frame for Sea Eagles clash

    Young forward Will Matthews has been named to make his return to the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans line-up for Saturday night’s final round clash against Manly at Brookvale Oval.

    The 21-year-old Kyogle kid, who played with the Tweed Heads Seagulls in the Queensland Cup semi-finals last weekend, has been promoted back into the top squad in the absence of injured forward Brad Meyers.

    The in-form Meyers is battling a hand injury suffered in last weekend’s 36-24 win over the Wests Tigers at Skilled Park.

    After making his first grade debut in 2008, Matthews has been a regular feature on the Titans’ interchange bench this season and is set to play his 14th NRL match for the year against Manly.

    Fellow forward Selasi Berdie, who also played with the Seagulls last weekend, has been named on an extended five-man interchange bench.

    Jetstar Titans coach John Cartwright said prop Luke Bailey was also in some doubt due to illness but a decision on his fitness would be made later in the week.

    “Meyers has got a bit of a problem with his hand and Bailey has been pretty crook this week,'' said Cartwright.

    "We’ll probably give Bailey a bit later in the week and see how he is.

    “We’ll give him until the end of the week, he doesn’t really need to participate in any field sessions at the moment.

    “It’s a good chance to freshen him up actually.’’

    The Titans head to Sydney this weekend searching for their first win at Brookvale Oval having been beaten in the club's two visits to the ground to date.

    no use pushing Lyon back. The game doesnt matter a whole lot at this stage so I am happy to rest him

    Nothing to get excited about with that line up. At least Tony Williams didn't make the extended squad. That is actually miraculous.

    Despite last weekends result Saturday night should be a great night out. I'll do my bit for the team and get drunk on the hill. Here's hoping they do their bit and take down another top four opponent. We did the Bulldogs and Storm in a respectable manner, I want to see a solid win over the Tits to compensate for us getting robbed earlier this season.

    Caarrrrnnnn Manly Warringah!

    I watched a bit of the Titans v Tigers game and the Tigers had trouble closing down the offloads from the Titans and letting them get second phase ball, which Preston in particular capitalised on. Given how woeful our defence was against the Sharks, where they out-offloaded us 15-1, we will get lapped if we don't shut the ball carrier down against this mob.

    Not confident at this stage unless there is a MASSIVE turn around in form this week.

    We need to win this weekend. We are not playing well enough to survive the playoffs versus 7 or 8.

    Note that this team is almost the closest to the GF team we have fielded all year.

    10 of the thirteen starters are in the 13 with Hall on the bench instead. Only King, Lyon, Menzies, Bryant and Bell missing from the 17.

    Tell me that just before kick off, once we have the result from over in sheep shagger land when the scum have had their noses rubbed into the sheep dip.

    If the scum lose, and there is a huge possibility they will, then this game can be huge for us. Even if they manage to somehow win, we need to be on track heading into the finals, so the win and the team build has to be there for us.

    Looking at the calendar, I see it is a full moon Saturday

    Wolfman has made a habit of long range tries under the full moon this season so hope that continues !!!
