Berrigan cleared to play for Brisbane

Brisbane hooker Shaun Berrigan will take his place in tonight's showdown with the Gold Coast Titans after being in some doubt with a hip injury.

Berrigan has been cleared to play which means utility Michael Ennis will drop off Brisbane's bench. Brisbane could make a late change with David Stagg tipped to start in the second-row in his first game back for the season ahead of Sam Thaiday who'll play an impact role off the Broncos bench.

Meanwhile Gold Coast officials have urged Titans fans to snap up tickets today and flood Suncorp Stadium in a sea of blue. More than 40,000 tickets have already been sold for the historic clash which will have a State of Origin-like atmosphere.
