    Dave Taylor (Gold Coast Titans) has been charged with a Grade Two Dangerous Contact with Kicker on Broncos halfback Peter Wallace. If he pleads guilty he misses two weeks, if he fights and loses he misses three.

    Update: Titans forward Dave Taylor won his downgrade attempt at the judiciary, so he is free to play this week as is Luke Douglas (Titans) who taking an early plea is also free to play this weekend.

    Gold Coast centre Jamal Idris is likely to miss the remainder of the NRL season after suffering a suspected broken fibula in his side's loss to Newcastle on Sunday.

    On the same day reports emerged the manager of Wests Tigers icon Benji Marshall met John Kirwan - the coach of the Auckland-based Super Rugby club the Blues - about a potential move, Idris' dreams of a State of Origin recall for the series decider were demolished.

    Idris came off in the fifth minute of his side's 46-16 thrashing in Newcastle after falling awkwardly in a tackle and was immediately sent to hospital for scans.

    "They were worried about a break. I don't think it's minor, put it that way," Gold Coast coach John Cartwright said.

    That's bad news for both Idris and the Titans. He will be a big loss for them. This could really impact on them making the play-off's.

    The iSelect Gold Coast Titans have been hit by bad news on the eve of their 2014 Telstra Premiership campaign that centre Jamie Dowling looks certain to be sidelined for the season after suffering a knee injury in the opening minute of the Burleigh Bears’ clash with the Central Queensland Capras on Sunday.

    Awful news.

    This is why bookies in general (Bookies have to heat their pools as well :)) make stacks of dosh on long range bets such as who will win the comp. There is no way to factor in the randomness of how season ending injuries will be distributed across the teams.

    On the subject of bookies making money, I have a number of mates who buy an 8-leg multi for each round of the season!
    This must be one of the faster ways to lose cash. 8-leg multis force you to bet on every game even where the teams are so closely matched, you might as well toss a coin to select the winner. In any round, generally two games will have clear winners, two games will have clear losers, the other four games you just don't bet on.

    I seem to recall Jamal Idris in injured as well ATM, but thankfully for the Fold Coast, Jamal is now under contract to the Pennies.

    Ashley Harrison may not play again and has taken at least two weeks off to decide his future.

    Harrison, 33, made a comeback from a broken neck in the Titans loss to Melbourne last Monday but suffered a “burner’’ in his arm as a result of nerve damage.

    Ryan James may miss a week for breaking Teddy's jaw. Just shows an accidental touch of a Ref is treated highly by the Judiciary - same outcome.
