The Gold Coast Titans have named their 18-man squad for the second annual Dick Smith Auckland Nines tournament, which is set to be staged at Eden Park on January 31 and February 1.

The squad a good mixture of youth and experience, will enter the competition in a group filled with quality sides including the New Zealand Warriors, Canberra Raiders and Wests Tigers.

With new signings Josh Hoffman and exciting young dummy-half Kierran Moseley joining seasoned Titans Will Zillman and Luke Douglas, coach Neil Henry will be hoping to use this as a test for his side in his first pre-season as head coach at the Titans.

The Titans open their campaign with a game against the Warriors followed by a fixture against their round one opponents, the Tigers. A final group game against the Raiders on Sunday will round out their preliminary games.
