Gold Coast captain Nate Myles is one of several Titans battling injury after another horror weekend for the NRL strugglers.
Myles and fellow prop Ryan James will undergo MRI scans in the next 24 hours after picking up shoulder injuries in Friday’s 34-0 hammering by Brisbane.
With rookie half Kane Elgey also picking up a concussion against the Broncos, Titans coach Neil Henry will be hoping for a positive result from the scans as he tries to piece together a team for next Monday’s clash with Parramatta.
Compounding his woes, a trio of fringe first-graders also picked up injuries while playing in the Queensland Cup on Sunday.
Utility Matt Srama, in just his second match back from a serious ankle injury, dislocated his shoulder and appears to be out for the remainder of the season.
Winger Anthony Don also dislocated a shoulder and is unlikely to play again this year.
Outside back Brad Tighe will have scans on a hamstring tear, although it’s hoped his injury isn’t that serious.
It continues a injury-riddled campaign for the Titans, who have lost five straight games and are battling to avoid a second wooden spoon in five years.
Back-rower Lachlan Burr says the disruption to the playing lineup has had a hand in the team’s poor form.
“It’s hard when you’ve got players coming back from injury, it’s tough, any club would be feeling it,” Burr said.
