The round’s biggest mismatch pits the Roosters against the Titans at the SCG. The Chooks are massive 16.5-point favourites for this one, but will be without some of their key backline players. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves is lost to suspension, while Boyd Cordner and Siosuia Taukeiaho are out with injury. A shuffle of the Roosters pack seeing Issac Liu, Zane Tetevano and Angus Crichton all start, with three new bench players added.
The Titans continue to lose games by big margins and last weekend was no different as they were hammered 34-12 by the Broncos. Ash Taylor has ben named in the reserves, with Alex Brimson out and replaced by Ryley Jacks.
There isn’t much working in the Titans favour at the moment, with the Roosters winning the past four games against them. Gold Coast has been the worst performing side against the spread this season, covering on just 5 of 18 occasions. They have not been this big of an underdog all season. The Wolf thinks this could be anything if the Roosters turn up and they have named a strong side despite a few changes and should waltz to victory.
