Gold Coast Titans half Kane Elgey (pictured)  has targeted the Auckland Nines for his comeback after missing the entirety of the 2016 NRL season with a knee injury.

The Titans Rookie of the Year in 2015 has plenty of competition for spots in the Gold Coast squad with Indigenous All Stars Tyrone Roberts and Ash Taylor in 2016.

Elgey says after a long pre season, he’s excited by the prospect of once again taking to the field with ball in hand.
