Currently 15th and 16th on the competition ladder, the Titans and Knights are desperate for two points as they try to maintain pace with the top eight.
While the Knights appear destined to be in another scrap for the wooden spoon, the Titans gave their fans cause for optimism last week with their superb win over Cronulla away from home.
The Sharks hadn’t conceded a try in their previous wins over Melbourne and Penrith, but the Titans’ attack – which ranks among the best in the competition – was able to find a way through the Cronulla defence in a 16-12 triumph.
Jarryd Hayne and Konrad Hurrell were tremendous in returning from injury, while Ash Taylor and Tyrone Roberts gelled well in the halves as Hayne slotted back into fullback. With Kevin Proctor and Nathan Peats also back, the Titans have a side more than capable of making a quick climb up the ladder over the next month.
Meanwhile, the Knights continue to fight hard, but they simply don’t have the class to be a consistent threat to most sides in the competition.
However their one and only win in pretty much the last year came against the Titans back in Round 2, so at least that’s something Newcastle can turn to for confidence in approaching this game.
Nathan Brown continues to reshuffle his side and has again left out former NSW halfback Trent Hodkinson in favour of injecting some youth and enthusiasm.
The Knights haven’t won many games in the last two seasons, but quite a few of them have come against the Titans, so they know they have it in them. However with Gold Coast now boasting a full-strength line-up and coming off a huge win over Cronulla – and playing at home – I think they are destined for a convincing win.
