Gold Coast playmaker Tyrone Roberts is no sure thing to remain in the NRL beyond this season after attracting a big offer from UK Super League powerhouse Warrington.

Having narrowly missed-out on Ben Barba, the Wolves have identified Roberts as the man to ignite their attack.

Current five-eighth Kane Elgey is a favourite of Titans coach Neil Henry, but the mail gets stronger each week that he’ll be lured to the tropics as Johnathan Thurston’s successor at the Cowboys.

The Titans are also confident of poaching another Broncos prop to join Jarrod Wallace on the Glitter Strip, with young bookend Jai Arrow believed to be close to making the switch.
