Peyroux to debut for Titans

Cook Islands representative flyer Dominique Peyroux will make his anticipated debut for the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans in Sunday's away clash against the Newcastle Knights at Ausgrid Stadium.

Jetstar Titans Coach John Cartwright today named the 22-year-old on the wing in place of the injured Steve Michaels (concussion) as reward for a string of strong performances for Queensland Cup feeder club Tweed Heads Seagulls this year.

Peyroux, who represented Cook Islands at the 2009 Pacific Cup, was part of the club's National Youth Competition Under-20s team in 2009 alongside the likes of Kevin Gordon and Jordan Rankin, and has since been in the Titans' feeder system with Tweed Heads.

Cartwright said he was pleased to be giving Peyroux the chance to show his skills in first grade after erring on the side of caution to rest Michaels due to some recent head knocks.
