THE TEAM NEWS
GOLD COAST TITANS
- Gold Coast Titans failed to build on their opening round win over Wests Tigers as they were unable to deal with St. George Illawarra Dragons last week in what was a disappointing showing.
- The Titans were poor on both sides of the ball but particularly defensively and will now have to cope without Jojo Fifita and Sam Verrills through injury while Iszac Fa’asuamaleaui will debut from the bench.
Starting 13: Brimson, Khan-Pereira, Kelly, Schoupp, Sami, Foran, Boyd, Fotuaika, Randalls, T. Fa’asuamaleaui, D. Fifita, Stimson, Liu – Interchanges: Campbell, Clark, Vuna, I. Fa’asuamaleaui – Reserves: McIntyre, Haas, Sexton, Kini, Spry
Unavailable: Patrick Herbert (Injured), Beau Fermor (Injured), Jojo Fifita (Injured), Sam Verrills (Injured), Jaimin Jolliffe (Injured)
- Melbourne Storm’s long injury list caught up with them as they suffered an upset in their home game with Canterbury Bulldogs last week, succumbing to a one-sided defeat.
- The Storm were without a host of regulars for that contest but will have Justin Olam, Xavier Coates and Tui Kamikamica available for this contest while Tariq Sims will make his club debut.
Starting 13: Meaney, Warbrick, Smith, Olam, Coates, Wishart, Hughes, Kamikamica, H. Grant, Welch, Loiero, Katoa, King – Interchanges: Pezet, MacDonald, Sims, J. Grant – Reserves: Anderson, Pene, Tonumaipea, Garlick, Bradley
Unavailable: Dean Ieremia (Injured), Ryan Papenhuyzen (Injured), George Jennings (Injured), Tepai Moeroa (Injured), Tom Eisenhuth (Injured), Cameron Munster (Injured), Nelson Asofa-Solomona (Injured)
Gold Coast Titans were disappointing in their loss to St. George Illawarra Dragons last week and will hope to produce a much better showing here as they host Melbourne Storm. It will be a tough ask for the Titans against a Storm side that will have several players back in the side after overcoming injuries, as well as having a point to prove. They were very poor in defeat last week as Canterbury Bulldogs got the better of them but their 17 looks much better this week and they can make an immediate return to winning ways.
