Lots of talk surrounding the Titans and the eight after a successful offseason. Gold Coast added Tyrone Peachey and a bunch of depth to their young roster, which should make life a little easier for Garth Brennan as he hopes to turn things around in his second year as coach.
The Raiders also enjoyed a busy summer, although they have lost a handful of key playmakers, including Shannon Boyd to this weekend’s opponent. Canberra looked every bit a Top 8 side last year but fizzled out over the final month to win just two of their four games.
These two sides met twice last season splitting the series one win apiece. They played out a two-point classic in Round 1 last year, the same margin that sees the Titans favoured ahead of this weekend’s opening matchup.
It’s been a rare occurrence to find the Titans at the shorter price. They were favoured at home only once last year, while the Raiders finished 1-8 as the away underdog. That’s good news for Gold Coast, but they’ll need to shutdown the kicking game and keep guys like Jack Wighton away from the ball if they want any chance at winning this one.
Tip: Canberra Raiders at $1.95
Value Tip: First Try Scorer: Nick Cotric at $8.50
