Streams for Gold Coast Titans vs Sydney Roosters




Gold Coast have a big job ahead of them, if they want to claw their way back into the premiership conversation, by securing a top 8 berth, and that must start here and now against a strong Roosters club, that will give nothing away.  The Titans were big improvers last time out, against Melbourne, who were missing some stars, but they too had big shoes to fill, as their Origin remnant were unavailable, but ultimately lost by 6, and are 5-8, 12th.  The Chooks had a week off in round 13, and were miles too good for Canberra in Indigenous Round, beating them 44-16, keeping their top 4 hopes well and truly alive, as they are 8-4, 5th but just 1 win behind Souths who are 4th.  Postcard perfect conditions await, at the picturesque Gold Coast location for this vital game, where the Titans will be hoping their crowd can prove to be one of the real differences between the sides.

Fotuaika the sole warrior that toiled manfully for Queensland on Wednesday is out of this clash, after picking up a 1-game ban, which leaves the Titans with a void to fill, probably by Jolliffe, while Vuna may get another game from the bench.  Fifita and Tino look good to go after their Origin participation, while Brimson too is cleared to play.  Don would be a welcome inclusion if he can pass fitness tests, probably replacing Marzhew in a straight swap, while Rein would demand a place at hooker if fit too, which would see Clark dropped to the bench and Marsters miss out.  Tedesco is fit after Wednesday’s fun he had, and likely to play, while Liu and Walker return to round out a strong, almost non-affect by Origin club.

The Chooks will be looking to make this a special result, as their veteran prop, Jarred Waerea-Hargreaves is playing his 250th game, and winning here would be a just reward for all the service he has given them.  It was a tight game last time these clubs met, as the Chooks held on to win 18-12, with discipline and the boot of Flanagan been the two big issues that hindered the Titans.  The Roosters have seen their odds wander to $12 in title betting markets, while the Titans are battling to just make the 8, as they are $2.35 chances of playing in the post-season.  The Roosters are -12.5 in handicap margin markets, while they are $1.25 favourites to win the game; Gold Coast are $4 chances.

PREDICTION: Gold Coast have a chance to play better at home, but Roosters are favourites deservedly and should win by about 10.

BETTING TIP: $3.10 is interesting odds for the Titans to restrict the Roosters winning margin to between 1-12.
