The NRL Team, Gold Coast Titans, are troubled at the prospect of approaching Round 1 of the 2017 season, with a number of their top players injured and some newly recovered.
Titans currently do not have the two key players, Kevin Proctor and Konrad Hurrell in training.
Halfback, Ash Taylor, said their current absence due to knee injuries definitely took its toll on the team in training.
Taylor himself is recovering from off-season groin surgeries and will be present for the season opener, though it may well be a fidgety start for him as well.
And the team is also missing English recruit, Dan Sarginson, to injury, though details were not revealed.
Proctor and Hurrell are expected are expected to resume training two weeks prior to round 1 of the 2017 season. .
