The Titans have struggled to score the past two weeks despite playing against two of the NRL’s worst defensive teams. In both of those games Gold Coast were in position enough times to put points on the board but failed in creativity close to the line to convert the pressure into points. 

New Zealand have conceded the 6th fewest points to opposition teams this season and they will no doubt be looking to capitalise on the poor Titans attack by lifting their crushing defence, especially close to the line.

Considering recent trends between these teams I am not tipping a blowout, New Zealand will win by at least a try. 

  • 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 9 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.

The most recent game went Over the Game Total but 7 of the preceding 8 games and including 6 in a row had gone Under the total. 

The last 4 games in a row have all been tight finishes with the Winning Margin coming in between 1-12 points. Only 3 of the last 9 have finished with Margins of 13+.

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.

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.

Verdict

The Titans attack has crumbled the last few weeks and it is tough seeing them getting many points past this Warriors defence which is at an above average level. Not to mention the Gold Coast defence is one of the worst in the league especially through the middle where the Warriors like to smash through. NZ to cover and Fonua-Blake to crash over for a try!
