St George Illawarra Dragons vs Gold Coast Titans Preview
The Dragons’ quest to return to the top eight runs through the Titans this week in their return to Jubilee.
St George cut it very close last week against the Broncos in their four-point victory, a performance Paul McGregor will be hoping his side can put behind them ahead of another very winnable game.
The Titans had their moments early on against the Raiders last week, but they were ultimately overcome by Canberra’s star power as Nick Cotric and Jack Wight both scored a double.
Despite the loss, Gold Coast still find themselves four points clear of the Bulldogs, but a win this week doesn’t appear very likely with several big names still missing from the side.
Kevin Proctor will serve the second of his five-game suspension, while Jai Arrow is out until at least Round 19.
On the flip side, the Dragons are also missing some familiar faces.
Korbin Sims injured his calf last week against Brisbane, while Paul Vaughan is headed for a two week stint on the sidelines due to suspension.
The Saints have won their last five games against the Titans though, which includes a 20-8 victory at Suncorp back in Round 6.
Zac Lomax and Mikaele Ravalawa dominated that game and they’ve just about been unstoppable ever since.
That said, the Titans have shown plenty of belief this year under Justin Holbrook and it wouldn’t be surprising to watch them keep this close.
With that in mind, the Dragons 1-12 appears a good value bet.
