Brown, Lawton named for Titans

The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans have today named hookers Riley Brown and Kayne Lawton in an extended 18-man squad for Sunday's Trans-Tasman clash against the New Zealand Warriors at Skilled Park.

With hooker Nathan Friend set to undergo minor shoulder surgery this week which will rule him out for an indefinite period, Jetstar Titans Coach John Cartwright has selected Brown at hooker and Lawton on an extended five-man interchange bench to take on the Warriors.

Both have been in-form recently while playing for Jetstar Titans' Queensland Cup feeder clubs Burleigh Bears (Brown) and Tweed Heads Seagulls (Lawton). Brown has plenty of NRL experience with 48 matches to date, including four games this season, while Lawton, a Tweed Heads junior, has 2 NRL appearances to his name.
