Queensland great Billy Moore thinks Gold Coast will regret the splash for cash on hulking forward Shannon Boyd as the NRL considers a game-changing interchange reduction.

The Canberra and Australian prop will join the Titans in 2019 on a four-year deal reportedly worth $2.4 million.

The 25-year-old will join Jai Arrow, Jarrod Wallace and Ryan James in a youthful but intimidating four-pronged pack that many have tipped to do significant damage.

But former Queensland and Australian second-rower Moore thinks it may prove to be a smart offload by Raiders coach Ricky Stuart as the NRL considers a move from eight to six interchanges.

"They could've spent that money elsewhere; they need a strike outside back or backrower."

"I've only seen 80 minutes of him but you can see something in him, he has an underlying confidence.

"If I was the Titans I'd be raiding the Bulldogs, who have salary cap pressure ... (Moses) Mbye grew up on the Sunshine Coast, might like to come home and would be a perfect fit in the backline."

The Titans will aim to halt a five-game losing streak when they meet the Newcastle Knights on Saturday in Robina.
