THE TEAM NEWS

GOLD COAST TITANS

Starting 13: Campbell, Marzhew, Kelly, Herbert, Sami, Taylor, Fogarty, Wallace, Clark, Fotuaika, Stone, Fifita, Fa’asuamaleaui – Interchanges: Peachey, Jolliffe, McIntyre, Whitbread – Reserves: Rein, Brimson

  • Gold Coast Titans almost produced a sensational come-from-behind victory over Sydney Roosters last week thanks to scoring 30 unanswered points to take the lead but they could not hold on at the end as they conceded a late try before Sam Walker’s field goal separated the teams.
  • It was a superb effort by the Titans who fought back valiantly but their defensive woes were highlighted once again as they conceded 35 points in that game to take their total to 380 points allowed for the season.

MANLY SEA EAGLES

Starting 13: T. Trbojevic, Saab, Parker, Harper, Garrick, Foran, Cherry-Evans, Paseka, Croker, Taupau, Olakau’atu, Lawton, De Luis – Interchanges: Walker, B. Trbojevic, Keppie, Sipley – Reserves: Suli, Funa

Unavailable: Manase Fainu (Suspended), Andrew Davey (Injured), Morgan Boyle (Injured), Jack Gosiewski (Injured), Josh Aloiai (Injured), Josh Schuster (Injured), Cade Cust (Injured), Zac Saddler (Injured), Curtis Sironen (Injured), Jake Trbojevic (Injured)

  • Despite resting key man Tom Trbojevic after his man of the match performance in State of Origin, Manly Sea Eagles produced a sensational performance to blow North Queensland Cowboys away last week to make an immediate return to winning ways.
  • The Sea Eagles ran in 50 points in that thumping win to make it four wins from their last five games but they need to back that up in order to stay in contention of forcing their way into top four contention.

THE PREDICTION

Manly Sea Eagles showed that they can still produce the goods without Tom Trbojevic pulling the strings as they racked up 50 points in a huge win over North Queensland Cowboys last week. They will now go in search of a fifth win in their last six games as they take on Gold Coast Titans, a side that have lost their last three after a devastating loss to Sydney Roosters last week. They fought back from a 26-point deficit to take the lead but they could not hold on late in the contest and with Manly in good form and looking very good with ball in hand, the away side should earn another victory here.
