Hayne Plane not going to NZ for NRL trial

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 15/02/2017

Superstar Jarryd Hayne has been left on the sideline for Gold Coast's NRL trial against the Warriors in Palmerston North.

Hayne played in the Titans' Nines campaign in Auckland two weeks ago but will be rested from the trial against the Warriors, with Tyrone Roberts to play fullback.

The Titans will play their first choice halves combination of Ashley Taylor and Kane Elgey, in what will be the club's final pre-season hitout before opening their NRL season against the Sydney Roosters on March 4 at home.

Winger Daniel Vidot will also play for the Titans off an extended bench, in his return season in the NRL after stints with St George Illawarra, Canberra and Brisbane.

The Warriors will play their round one match at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland against Newcastle on March 5.
