Titans players have returned to training for the first time since being stood down on drugs charges.

The same day, the Knights will look to overcome a Titans side boosted by Origin stars, Greg Bird and Dave Taylor, who had been stood down following drug charges. “It’s been a tough month for them. They’ll be looking to have big games themselves.” Read More »
