The Gold Coast Titans say they have sorted out the visa problems that have delayed the arrival of Brian Carney.

Carney was missing from training this week, sparking fears that he might fail to join the Australian club after rumours that he wanted to get out of his contract with them. Gold Coast say, however, that he will link up with them next week.

At home, Jamie Thackray will play for Leeds against his first club, Hunslet, in the annual Lazenby Cup game tomorrow. The prop was disappointed with his form against Wakefield on Boxing Day and has asked for another run-out.

Huddersfield have completed their squad with the arrival of Shane Elford and Jamahl Lolesi from Wests Tigers in Sydney.
