Locking horns are two of the best in the business. Watch for the two players in the #13 jersey when the Titans host the Cowboys on Sunday as the lock forwards could go a long way to deciding the game for their respective teams.
For the Titans, it’s Jai Arrow.
The Queensland Origin representative is the Gold Coast’s workhorse. Getting through 58 minutes per game, 12 more than his career average, Arrow has an ability to impact the game with his strong charges getting the Titans on the front foot.
Averaging 35 tackles per game this season, Arrow will be one of the key men if the Titans are to get the win over their northern rivals.
The Gold Coast will need to shut down the Cowboys lock forward, with Jason Taumalolo one of the biggest threats in the game.
Averaging a whopping 225 metres per game, “JT” is the key man for the Cowboys to ride away with a win today.
While the matchup to watch is in the between the two locks, it is worth keeping an eye on the player at the back for the Titans.
Brimson is back. AJ returned to the Titans squad last week as a late inclusion in the #21 jersey.
This week he is back in the Titans #1, with the star fullback playing just his second game for the season after missing most of 2020 with a back injury.
The explosive backline player can create scoring opportunities from anywhere on the field and he will be a constant threat for the Titans against the Cowboys.
North Queensland haven’t won in their last five appearances and will be desperate to return to form against the Gold Coast. The Titans have won just once in their last five starts but have impressed in the past fortnight against the ladder leading Penrith side, before taking the challenge to the defending premiers (Sydney Roosters) last weekend.
With both teams’ level on competition points, the winner will move to sit as the highest ranked Queensland team on the NRL ladder.
