U20s want successive wins

iSelect Gold Coast Titans under-20s coach Ben Woolf has one hope today – that his side that was so impressive on Monday night against South Sydney can back it up and achieve their first home win against Canberra at Cbus Super Stadium.

“The boys have seen what they can do when they take control of the ball and don’t have to put in that much defence,” he said. “Hopefully they keep up their confidence, take control again, and we can get the win.”

Monday night’s game against the Rabbitohs was one of the first games in which the side proved what it can do when it gains constant attacking momentum from good ball control. Every player stepped up, but Karl Lawton is the one to impress.

“Karl Lawton is really coming along,” said Woolf. “He’s really stepping up and showing he’s more and more dangerous with every game.”

As far as injuries go, Jahrome Hughes and Jaiden Hawkes had a slow start to the week due to slight injuries but have pushed passed them and are ready to play. 

The iSelect Gold Coast Titans under-20s’ game kicks off at 11:45 am, followed by the NRL at 2pm.
