The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans have named State of Origin representative Greg Bird and prop Michael Henderson to make their return for Monday night's heavyweight clash against the Sydney Roosters at the SFS.
Bird was unable to take his place in the Jetstar Titans line-up for last Saturday night's win over North Queensland after failing a fitness test on his injured hamstring in the lead-up to the match.
However, the 26-year-old is expected to be fit to take on the Roosters after being named by Jetstar Titans coach John Cartwright on the interchange bench alongside Henderson, who was ruled out with a virus last weekend.
Youngster Ben Ridge has again been named as 18th man.
After being hindered by a virus last week, Henderson said he was ready to take on the Roosters.
