Just under two years after walking away from the NRL to chase a dream of playing in America's NFL, Jarryd Hayne will return to rugby league tomorrow.

The Gold Coast Titans will catapult their superstar recruit straight into the action in a crucial home clash with the Warriors, days after he was signed on a multi-million dollar two-year deal.

It will be Hayne's first NRL appearance since Parramatta's 33-20 loss to Canberra in September 2014.

The 28-year-old will start the match from the bench, with a likely role in the halves when he does come on.

Titans coach, Neil Henry, said he had no qualms about throwing the dual Dally M medallist straight into the mix for what is a crucial clash for both clubs.

The Titans sit seventh on the ladder after Monday's thrilling 18-all draw with Cronulla, just one point ahead of the eighth-placed Warriors.
