The rejuvenated Broncos can put the final nail in Justin Holbrook’s time at the Titans with a big win.
The Titans will still be having nightmares about their last meeting with the Broncos. Up 24-4 at halftime, Gold Coast completely collapsed to lose 35-24 in a devastating, humiliating capitulation. Losses like those are hard to forget.
That Broncos loss was the second in a run of six straight defeats, four of which they have conceded 30-plus in. They have just a single win in their last 12 matches. Against teams inside the Top 8 this year the Titans are 0-10 with the last eight losses coming by more than seven points.
Gold Coast have covered just 3 of 12 off a loss and just 5 of 16 as a home underdog of more than a converted try.
Brisbane have covered 9 of 10 and have covered 8 of 10 off scoring 30-plus. They have covered 4 of 6 when favoured by more than a converted try.
It would take a game bettor to be with the Titans here.
Same Game Multi
Tesi Niu has 10 tries in 28 NRL games and has scored in his last two. He was immense in his return too getting plenty of touches.
Delouise Hoeter comes off a double and the left wing always needs to be included for the Broncos.
Kotoni Staggs has a double against the Dragons and has four tries in five games against the Titans.
Broncos five-eighth Ezra Mam has been a very good tryscorer in his short career with four tries in his six starts including last week against the Dragons. He is going to get plenty of chances against a horrid Titans defence.
