NRL: Marsters switches Titans role

Gold Coast Titans star Esan Marsters will switch from centre to the second row as he attempts to reignite his career in the 2022 NRL campaign.

The Titans are priced at 17/1 to win the 2022 NRL grand final and Marsters is aiming to play a key role as Justin Holbrook's men make a push to play finals for a second season running.

Positional switch

Marsters admits that his favourite position is playing centre but he has played forward in the past and has been training there with the Titans during pre-season.

The switch has come about following a conversation with Holbrook and Marsters is happy to play wherever the coach wants him to.

"I think we were just short on back-rowers and he thought I could be mobile and use my leg-speed there," Marsters told reporters.

"It's nothing new. It's just getting back to that work rate, making more tackles. Especially on defence, that's something I need to work on."

International hopes

Marsters is looking forward to a fresh start following spells with the Wests Tigers and the North Queensland Cowboys where he only played 15 games before joining the Titans last season.

Marsters' number one goal is to play consistent footy with the Gold Coast but he also has one eye on making a return to the New Zealand side and add to his six Tests.

"Kiwis is definitely where I want to be and what I want to get back to. I know how much work it takes to get back there," he added. "I've had a good pre-season on the Goldy. Hopefully I get a Kiwis call-up at the end of the year."
