Titans unchanged for final match against Eels
The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans have named an unchanged line-up for Saturday night's final match of the year against the Parramatta Eels at Skilled Park.
The Jetstar Titans returned to the Gold Coast today nursing bumps and bruises in the wake of last night's 39-10 loss to the Wests Tigers but will field the same 17-man squad that took the field at Campbelltown Stadium.
Saturday night's match will mark emotional farewells for departing players Preston Campbell (retirement), Anthony Laffranchi (St Helens), Will Matthews (Dragons), Esi Tonga (Parramatta) and Clinton Toopi (retiring from NRL).
Injured players Nathan Friend (NZ Warriors), Brad Meyers (retirement), Riley Brown (Newcastle - local league) and Luke Capewell (Broncos) will also say goodbye to fans at the match before they also move on at the end of the season.
While the winner of the match will avoid the wooden spoon for 2011, Jetstar Titans Coach John Cartwright said his side's emphasis would be purely on sending their departing players out on a winning note in front of the club's fans.
