Titans name Moseley in Nines squad

January 21, 2015 10:46:49 UK

Kierran Moseley is the man of the moment for Gold Coast Titans, after being named in their squad for the Auckland Nines.

The 20-year-old was told he would be heading to Eden Park to play in the two-day tournament, just 24 hours after his shock selection in the Indigenous AllStars team.

Former Panthers playmaker Moseley is one of five newcomers named by coach Neil Henry in his squad for the event starting on 31st January.

I wouldn’t have ever pictured it. To be picked in the Indigenous team and then this, it’s been a good week. A good start to the season.

The others who will get their first competitive outing for the Titans, who are 19.00 to win the Auckland Nines, are Josh Hoffman, Lachlan Burr, Matt Robinson and Davin Crampton.

Moseley said: “I wouldn’t have ever pictured it. To be picked in the Indigenous team and then this, it’s been a good week. A good start to the season.”

Henry has gone for a blend of power and speed in his squad, with Moseley being asked to provide a creative spark along with first-choice halves combination Daniel Mortimer and Aidan Sezer.

Gold Coast left out flyer Kevin Gordon as he continues to build his fitness ahead of the new NRL campaign, while representative pair Nate Myles and Greg Bird were not considered following surgeries.

The Titans, who were knocked out in the group stages of last year’s inaugural Nines event, have been drawn against the Wests Tigers, Warriors and Raiders in the first phase this time around.

Henry said: “It is a team with a great blend of speed out wide but a fair bit of mobility and size in the forwards.

“I think we have plenty of players suited to the open spaces on Nines football and the boys are keen to do well. The squad has been training very hard on fitness and skills and this is our first chance to put some of that into practice.”

Gold Coast Titans are 3.75 to finish in the NRL top eight.
