Preview

Gold Coast Titans have the unenviable task of visiting South Sydney Rabbitohs on Monday night as they try to avoid a club-record seventh straight loss.

Considering the Rabbitohs are one of the competitions strongest sides and that the Titans haven’t beaten the Bunnies in Sydney since 2010 not many will fancy their chances this time out.

The home side’s narrow 20-18 loss to the Cowboys in their last outing will not give the Titans any encouragement as they will be determined to get back to winning ways.

Gold Coast don’t have a lot to shout about of late and with every defeat their hopes of finishing in the top eight are slipping further and further away.

The Titans did come close to ending their winless drought two weeks ago however they were beaten by one point against the Dragons.

In Round 9 when these two sides met it was the Rabbitohs on top with a 40-18 hammering of the Titans and Michael Maguire will be hoping for more of the same this time out.

With Origin on Wednesday both sides are affected with the Titans missing key players Greg Bird, Nate Myles and Dave Taylor while Greg Inglis and Ben Te’o miss out for the Rabbitohs.

Prediction

It’s hard to see the Titans getting anything from this one, Rabbitohs by 20
