Not since Round three at the start of the season has Nathan Ross been allowed to run riot on the wing.

The flamboyant outside back played majority of his 2017 season on the wing, becoming one of the Clubs most reliant try scorers.

After being moved to the centres this season and suffering an injury which has kept him out for a number of matches, the Rossdog is back.

He'll be looking to add something special out wide against the Gold Coast Titans on Saturday.

"I'm super pumped, it has been a long time since I've got back into the team on the wing so I'm really excited to get back into a position that I'm familiar with," Ross smiled.

"I had that injury to work through and I feel I am on top of that now."

Last week he was introduced back into NRL on the bench.

This week though he's back in the starting line up taking back his familiar no. 5 spot.

"Sitting on the bench last week was a different experience to see what the utilities have to go through," he said.

"Browny (Nathan Brown) had a yarn to me whether I would be centre, or wing and we came up that SKD (Shaun Kenny-Dowall) would be the best pick for right centre role and I just can't wait to do those hard runs out of yardage on the right wing."

Able to savour more one-on-one opportunities, Ross is hoping this week he'll get to finish off a couple of plays with one of his trademark try.

"In terms of positions that I enjoy playing the most, it is up there. I am comfortable playing it because I know what it entails I know where to be, I know what needs to be done, I know when to come up and shut a play down or when to stay back and I'm quite comfortable under the high ball, so hopefully Pearcey (Mitchell Pearce) will give me a couple of cross field kicks this weekend.

"Browny has given me more of a license to roam, pop up around the ball and he wants me to have an extremely high work rate this week, kind of like I have been playing for Newcastle in the previous years."

Ross said he was happy to try and forget the last time they played the Titans, earlier this year.

It was a game he admits they probably should have won.

"We were in the lead and they were down to 11 players at one point and you can't take away how hard the Titans worked to win that game," Ross added.

"They showed a lot of ticker to take the game off us, but it is a whole different ball game down here."
