NRL – Gold Coast Titans forward Ryan James (pictured) says he’s confident the club can turn its fortunes around after a disasterous 2105 season.

The club lurched from one crisis to another last season and have already lost emerging half Kane Elgey who suffered a ruptured ACL in the clubs first training session and is expected to miss the season.

James believes the clubs recruitment of senior forwards Nathan Friend and Dave Shillington will be  a real bonus for the Titans  and go some way to covering the loss of Origin and Kangaroos forward Nate Myles to Manly.
