Gold Coast Titans star Jarryd Hayne has backed himself to overcome a knee complaint ahead of Saturday night's NRL season opener against Sydney Roosters.

Hayne has been nursing a knee injury since the Auckland Nines but on Monday seemed unconcerned by reports that William Zillman was on standby for the fullback position.

"It feels good. If it keeps feeling good I am sure I will be out there," Hayne said after Monday's training session.
