Gold Coast Titans forward Ben Ridge has decided to return to his home town of Roma and retire from the NRL after a string of injuries.
With Sezer and Elgey highly unlikely to return this week, Daniel Mortimer and Josh Hoffman will be required to handle playmaking duties against Canberra.
Knights halfback Tyrone Roberts has been released from the final year of his contract to take up a two-year deal with Gold Coast, commencing in 2016.
Leva Li joined the Titans on a train and trial basis with no guarantees, he also had to fight back from injury to achieve his NRL debut.
The Gold Coast have called for greater protection of kickers after potentially losing Aidan Sezer for the season after he was smashed by prop Sam Kasiano.
Sam Kasiano starred as the Bulldogs' lack of dummy-half options was exposed in their trouncing of Gold Coast. Five key points from the big win.
The Bulldogs have prevailed over the Titans at Central Coast Stadium on Sunday afternoon, with the match featuring some of the tries of the season.
He was touted as one of the Titans' key off-season signings but David Hala almost quit the game mid-season before he'd even had a chance to play for the club.
In many ways it was fitting that Kalifa Faifai Loa's first NRL game following the sudden passing of his father last month was against the Eels.
While Sunday's clash at Central Coast Stadium may look like a one-sided affair, the history between these two sides is heavily in favour of the Titans.
