Roosters vs Titans Preview and Prediction

Sudden-death footy awaits the Roosters and Titans on Saturday in Townsville as both sides look to keep their season alive and move into week 2 of the finals.

Despite a horror injury toll throughout the season that saw millions of dollars worth of talent spending extended periods on the sidelines, the Roosters have remained in the top six all season.

Trent Robinson’s side struggled against the elite sides such as the Panthers and Storm, but they generally got the job done against the rest, winning 15 of their 17 games as favourites this season.

Not a bad record to take into an elimination final against a side they’ve beaten on seven consecutive occasions.

The Roosters also bounced back strongly from their 54-12 loss to the Rabbitohs by crushing the Raiders 40-16 last week. With James Tedesco raising his level and the return of enforcers Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Victor Radley, the Roosters have some firepower back for September.

Meanwhile, the Titans snuck into the top eight despite a 10-14 record for the season, which is the worst ever for a team to make the finals in Australian rugby league history.

Gold Coast performed when it mattered most however, absolutely obliterating the Warriors 44-0 last week when they only had to win by 11 points, knocking the Sharks out of the eight.

The Titans have the ability to score points quickly – as we saw last week – but they haven’t been able to beat the best teams in the competition in 2021, losing all nine games against the top six.

With over half their team having never played finals footy before, it’s a big ask for Gold Coast to pull off the upset here.

VERDICT:

The Roosters have soldiered on all season without their best troops and we think they can come out on top again here.

The Roosters have won the last seven meetings between the teams, 15 of 17 as favourites in 2021 and the Titans have lost all nine games against the top six. That’s pretty convincing in our book (Best Roosters win & over 46.5 points odds $2.32 with Ladbrokes.)
