NRL: Brimson out for Eels revenge

Titans star AJ Brimson has played down any concerns over his fitness and says he will be fit and firing when the Gold Coast take on Parramatta on Saturday.

Gold Coast are priced at 2/1 to beat the Eels and Brimson has a huge role to play after returning to Justin Holbrook’s side following injury.

Injury issues

Brimson had to sit out the round one clash against the Eels through injury. Parramatta won that game 32-28 and Brimson now has his chance to play a part in the revenge mission when the two sides meet again.

The five-eighth has played in the last three games and has put in some great performances as the Titans have won all three.

The 23-year-old scored the winning try in the 8-6 win over Wests Tigers last week and could not feel any better ahead of the Eels clash.

"I'm a bit sore after a short turnaround, but we've got the long turnaround this week, so just just taking the time to get me right for Saturday," Brimson said.

"I do extended warm-ups these days because I'm getting a bit old, so I just make sure my body is warm before I get on the fields and I'll keep doing that for the next couple of weeks.

"But, it's all good."

Eels look a threat

Meanwhile Brimson is well aware of the threat the Eels possess after they hammered the Dragons 48-14 last Sunday.

"They bring a lot as we saw Sunday night and throughout the season so far. They are a quality side and they just got us in Round 1, so I'm sure they're going to come ready, but we're also going to be ready," Brimson added.
