After a less than stellar start to life on the Glitter Strip, Des Hasler will be hoping to get one up on his old club when the Sea Eagles travel to the Gold Coast to take on the Titans.

The Titans return to the Gold Coast still chasing their first win of the season having gone down in golden point to the Raiders. The team had a much-improved defensive effort and will look to continue this trend in front of their home crowd and claim their first win of the year. AJ Brimson’s return to the spine last week was a rousing success and had the Titans looking far more dangerous in attack, with the livewire six having run for 163 metres with one line-break and five tackle busts.

The Sea Eagles will be stinging from their draw in a game they will feel they should have won, having led 22-10 early in the second half and will not want to be ambushed by a Titans side much lower down the ladder. The return of their strike weapons on the edges should see them cause plenty of trouble for the Titans if their sliding defence isn’t up to scratch.

The Titans have had a bit of a reshuffle with Phillip Sami taking the one jersey for the injured Jayden Campbell and David Fifita is named to start after coming off the bench in Canberra while the cavalry have returned for the Sea Eagles with Reuben Garrick, Jason Saab and Matthew Lodge all being named in the starting side for this clash.

These two sides have an even record against each other over the last ten games, winning five a piece with the Sea Eagles having the slight edge over the lifetime of this clash, having won 14 of their 26 matches overall.
