Gold Coast Titans vs Newcastle Knights Preview
A spot inside the top eight is up for grabs on Saturday when the Titans and Knights square off on the Gold Coast.
Both sides have played to middling 2-2 records so far, but as the odds suggest, the Titans look a relatively safe bet to move one step closer to playing finals.
Newcastle’s injury woes have only gotten worse with Mitchell Pearce now set to miss up to three months with a pectoral injury.
The skipper joins Kalyn Ponga, Kurt Mann, Bradman Best, Edrick Lee and David Klemmer on the sidelines – a long list that leaves the Knights seriously short on playmakers.
For all the hype, it’s fair to say the Titans have fallen somewhat short of expectations so far, but there’s still room for optimism despite last week’s forgettable loss to the Raiders.
Justin Holbrook is set to welcome centre Brian Kelly back to the side, while Anthony Don and Jamal Fogarty are both a chance at playing.
With the Knights missing the bulk of their star power, the Titans look a good bet to extend their home winning streak over Newcastle to six.
