New Zealand Warriors vs Gold Coast Titans Preview
Outside of Thursday’s nights encounter, this is far and away the most exciting game of the opening round.
Both of these teams have been popular picks to return to the finals this year after signing several big names to the dotted line during the offseason.
The Titans have lost fan favourite Jai Arrow during the process, but in return have gained David Fifita, Tino Fa’asuamaleaui and former Warrior Patrick Herbert, who lines up to face his old team for the first time.
By the same token, the Warriors also spent big during the break signing Euan Aitken, Kane Evans and Addin Fonua-Blake to help compliment Roger Tuivasa-Sheck in his final season with the club.
After both sides finished the 2020 season red-hot, it wouldn’t be surprising if we were treated to a high-scoring thriller on Saturday.
Both teams have high expectations heading into the new year, but it is worth noting these two sides both ranked towards the top of the league in points allowed last season.
Since it’s too early to get a gauge on either team, the Over looks the safest play with plenty of star power on offer.
