Gold Coast Titans vs New Zealand Warriors Preview


The Titans have struggled to score the past two weeks despite playing against two of the NRL’s worst defensive teams. The Warriors can take advantage and avenge their Round 8 loss to Gold Coast.

  • Gold Coast have scored 10 and 12 points in their two most recent games. 
  • New Zealand are the 6th best Scoring Defence in the NRL having kept their opponents to 20 points or less in 8 of 14 games this season. 
  • Addin Fonua-Blake has scored 6 tries in 13 games this year. 
  • The Titans have allowed at least one try to a forward in their last 5 games with a prop scoring in 4 of those games.

Head to Head 


These teams have met on nine occasions since the beginning of the 2019 season. 

Gold Coast lead the head to head 5-4 and have won 4 of the last 5 matchups including the Round 8 game earlier this season played in New Zealand.

Gold Coast Titans Form


The Titans could not defend their halftime lead against the Tigers last week, eventually losing the game 18-10 at Leichhardt. 

Gold Coast managed to run for 1709 metres in the game which for an average team should have translated into over 20 points. 

They also had 7 Linebreaks and 33 Tackles Inside Opposition 20m but managed only two tries, calling into question their attacking presence. 

Gold Coast Titans Team News


David Fifita returns to the starting team after missing last week with an ankle injury. He slots into the backrow in straight swap with the injured Klese Haas. 

Keenan Palasia is named in the front row with Mo Fotuaika on Origin duty.

New Zealand Warriors Form


The Warriors 3 game win streak was broken last weekend against the Storm as the New Zealanders went down 38-24. 

It was the highest scoring game for the Warriors all season as the score ballooned from a 14-20 halftime number. 

The Warriors had 71% of Territory in the game but failed to convert their 39 Tackles in Opposition 20m into enough points to get on top of the Storm. 

New Zealand conceded 8 penalties in the game helping their opposition get out of their own end on multiple occasions. 

New Zealand Warriors Team News


Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is back from injury replacing the injured Rocco Berry. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak is suspended which sees Edward Kosi named on the wing. 

Kurt Capewell and Mitch Barnett are both on Origin duty for their respective states with Dylan Walker the new starting backrower and Tohu Harris the lock forward.

Verdict

The Titans attack has crumbled the last few weeks and I'm backing under the big game total and for the Warriors to cover the line.
