Prediction

Match Preview


An unpredictable encounter awaits in rural NSW at Scully Park in Tamworth on Saturday as the Tigers and Titans collide in Round 7 action.

Gold Coast are on a mini-roll with two straight wins under their belt, but how will they perform away from Cbus Super Stadium? The Tigers were terrible against the Eels on Monday, but so often you see teams bounce back immediately after those kinds of defeats. Will they be able to return to the winners circle out in the country?

The Tigers were marching along strongly this season, but they’ve hit a roadblock in recent weeks, especially last week and a bit further back against the Bulldogs, while they were also flat in a lacklustre defeat to Penrith. They have a lot of work to do if they want to challenge for the top eight.

Despite last week’s 51-6 loss and a five-day turnaround, Michael Maguire has kept faith in the same 17 players for this contest.

Meanwhile, after a four-match losing streak to launch the season, Gold Coast have won their last two games against the Panthers and Knights, scoring at least 30 points in both victories.

The Titans also ran the Rabbitohs close in their previous clash, so this is certainly a team in solid form and on the rise - but how long will it last?

Gold Coast have a great recent record against the Tigers, winning six of their last seven encounters, and as underdogs, they’re certainly worth backing again. The Tigers have barely scored points over the last month, while the Titans have ran in 68 in their last two wins. It’s a 50-50 contest, but the value is with the Titans.

Wests Tigers - $1.65
