Under-20s on the big stage
Tomorrow night’s clash with the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium will be a first for many iSelect Gold Coast Titans under-20s.
“It's a big stadium, and a lot of players haven't experienced that big of a crowd," coach Ben Woolfe said. "I'm hoping the atmosphere gives the players a boost of confidence."
The Broncos, who are currently fourth on the Holden Cup ladder, will be tough to beat. Last time these two teams met, the Titans lost 34-18.
"Our completion rate was poor last time, we missed a lot of opportunities," said Woolf.
With two players out, Brian Kelly who injured himself with a high ankle sprain this week in training, and Caleb Morehu with a concussion, the Titans believe the one thing that is key to winning this game has to do with their control.
"We have to be better at the speed of the ruck, and controlling the ruck. That will be key in tomorrow night's game," Woolf said.
The iSelect Gold Coast Titans under-20s take the field at 5:20 pm tomorrow followed by the NRL game at 7:30 pm.
