Jarryd Hayne is set for his long awaited NRL return from an ankle injury after being named for the Gold Coast's NRL clash with Cronulla on Saturday night.

In a shot in the arm for the injury-hit Titans, Hayne has been included as 18th man and is expected to be slotted in to fullback if he proves his fitness this week.

Titans coach Neil Henry said the NRL star had not yet completed a training session but was "hopeful" of playing after being sidelined the last five weeks.

Meanwhile, Wests Tigers have pencilled in Luke Brooks (hamstring), St George Illawarra have welcomed back fullback Josh Dugan (hamstring), Sydney Roosters Dylan Napa (ankle) and Latrell Mitchell (rested) are on an extended bench as is Bryce Cartwright (foot) for Penrith.
