Yow Yeh delights Broncos with enthusiastic return Jharal Yow Yeh HIS Brisbane teammates, coach and the clubs staff were all in the crowd cheering on as Broncos winger Jharal Yow Yeh returned to rugby league yesterday. Some 13 months after suffering a horrendous ankle injury, Yow Yeh turned out in the forwards for Norths in a Queensland Cup game at Brisbanes Bishop Park. He had two stints, playing more than 30 minutes, and was so enthusiastic he almost knocked himself out making a tackle, which quickly reminded him of how tough the game can be. It was a real thrill, said Brisbane coach Anthony Griffin, who along with the clubs medical staff targeted Yow Yehs comeback game a month ago. I was so nervous for him, Griffin said. The whole team was there, the players, the medical staff, some of our staff. He put his body on the line and nearly knocked himself out at one point. Griffin said Yow Yeh, who is still a long way short of making an NRL comeback, had been an inspiration to his teammates since suffering his career-threatening ankle injury playing against Souths early in 2012. Its been a long 13 months, hes come through an awful lot and fought a lot of tough battles, said Griffin. He was a long way short of a gallop but he made it back and it was sensational to see him out playing again. I can tell you everyone was holding their breath for him today. Griffin said the clubs doctors and physios would assess how Yow Yeh had come through his first game before deciding on their next move. Knights prop Willie Mason looks down at injured Titans lock Ashley Harrison at Skilled Park yesterday Picture: ADAM HEAD Wounded Titans no match for Knights TITANSVKNIGHTS ByTRAVISMEYN To lose three players in the first 20minutes isnt ideal THE Titans face a brutal trip across the Tasman without eight top-line players after Origin star Ashley Harrison, utility Luke ODwyer and hooker Matt Srama suffered serious injuries in the clubs brutal 30-6 loss to Newcastle at Skilled Park yesterday. A shattered Gold Coast outfit were cut down to just 14 men inside the opening 10 minutes, ending any hope of competing with a fullstrength Newcastle. After a 4-2 start to the season, the Titans, now 4-3, face a horror trip to New Zealand for Sundays clash against the Warriors. Harrison will undergo scans today but is facing at least a month out with an ankle syndesmosis injury and twisted knee while ODwyer (broken jaw) and Srama (compound finger fracture) are set for lengthy stints on the sideline. The trio are joined by centre Brad Takairangi (hamstring), forward Ben Ridge (pec), prop Matt White (knee) and wingers Kevin Gordon (hamstring) and David Mead (jaw) on the injury list. Under the searing Gold Coast sun, Newcastle ran in a late flurry of tries. On a day like that, to lose three players in the first 20 minutes isnt ideal, Titans coach John Cartwright said. I spoke at halftime that we nearly had to play the perfect half of football with only one front-rower on the bench. We couldnt give them any cheap ball or possession but unfortunately thats what we did. A mad scramble saw halfback Albert Kelly shifted to left centre in the first half with Greg Bird moved into the halves. Kelly reverted back to his preferred position in the second half and scored a tearaway try to make it 12-6 but a double to Territorian James McManus and late try to Blues hopeful Akuila Uate blew out the score. ODwyer and Harrison were on the receiving ends of unpenalised high tackles when injured and Cartwright predicted the match review panel would be busy today. Both were groggy after the tackles and those were the tackles they got injured in, he said. They look at them every week so I daresay they will (review) them. Harrison is now in doubt for the State of Origin opener in Sydney on June 5. While Harrisons Origin availability is under a cloud, out-of-favour forward Dave Taylor took a step towards regaining his jersey. After being suspended by the Titans for two weeks for disciplinary reasons, Taylor played 70 minutes. The 24-year-old topped the runs (17) and metres (142) counts for the Titans despite spending the second half at left centre. Veteran Newcastle coach Wayne Bennett was pleased with his sides first away win of the season. Today was a great start for us, he said.
