Sydney Roosters and Gold Coast Titans clash on Saturday afternoon in NRL Round 12 in game pitting two teams sitting at opposite ends of the ladder. 

Boosted by the major signing news of David Fafita, the Titans were tough against the Panthers at home only narrowly going down in the wet.  Will the Roosters inflict a massive defeat on the Titans or can Gold Coast cause an upset?

Sydney Roosters Form & Team News 


The Roosters are sitting pretty in fourth place having won eight of ten games since the competition resumed in May. 

Despite receiving a scare from the understrength New Zealand Warriors last week on the Central Coast, Trent Robinson’s men are all class and rarely string bad performances together. 

Ryan Hall will return to the wing in place of Brett Morris (back) in the only change to the side, while captain Boyd Cordner remains on the sidelines due to concussion.

Gold Coast Titans Form & Team News 


The Titans once again find themselves at the wrong end of the ladder this season, but the endeavour cannot be faulted. 

Although coming up against competition leaders in Penrith last week, the Titans were enormous in challenging the powerful Panthers outfit and going down by only eight points.

Sydney Roosters vs Gold Coast Titans Match Up 


Jared Waera-Hargreaves is one of the toughest front-rowers in the game and has been the heart and soul of the Roosters pack for years, but he faces a stiff test packing the scrum against Titans gun Moeaki Fotuaika. 

Despite having a reputation as one of the toughest in the game, Waerea-Hargreaves was taken on last week by Jack Hetherington who seemed to ruffle the veteran's feathers. 

A big man with a massive motor, Fotuaika is one of the most promising props in the game and will be looking to take a lead from Hetherington’s book by challenging the Roosters leader. Never one to lie down, the veteran hardman Waerea-Hagreaves will be looking to reassert his dominance this week.
