After fracturing his right fibula in the opening minutes of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup Final, RTS has been kept on limited duties throughout the Off-Season and only returned to training in Week 1 of the 2014 schedule.
RTS last week, at the Squad's Coffs Harbour Training Camp, returned to running duties.
It is still expected that he will make a return to play in Round 1 of the 2014 NRL season.
After tearing his ACL in his return from injury, in the Round 15 Holden Cup fixture against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium, Tautau underwent a second knee reconstruction in as many seasons.
On a limited working load since suffering the injury, Tautau has responded well to treatment and has returned to running and light training.
It is still expected that he will make a return to play mid-season.
In further injury news, Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Isaac Liu have returned to full training following Off-Season surgery along with our World Cup representatives.
The Squad will split in to two this weekend when half head to Wyong on the Central Coast and our inaugural Auckland Nines outfit travel across the ditch for the debut of the Pre-Season tournament.
