NRL Preview: Titans v Knights

If there's a team that's going to have a buzz around them heading into 2021, it's the Titans.

Titans v Knights - Get tickets

A bright finish to 2020 and a host of big-name arrivals will have coach Justin Holbrook and his players feeling good about themselves.

But before thoughts turn to next year they will want to finish 2020 with another win which would equal the club record of five in a row.

The Knights - a team playing for a home final - will know they need to be on their game to get the victory.

The rundown

Team news -

Titans: Brian Kelly is set to return from an ankle injury at centre with Treymain Spry shifting to wing and Corey Thompson in the reserves following a hamstring complaint. Hooker Mitch Rein (head knock) and forward Jai Arrow (groin) are named and expected to play.

Nathan Peats (calf) has been included as a reserve and could return. The Titans are aiming to equal a club-record five consecutive wins.

Knights: Centre Bradman Best is expected to return from an ankle injury while winger Edrick Lee (personal leave) has also been named.

Kurt Mann is back from suspension at hooker, bumping Chris Randall to the pine and Phoenix Crossland out. Sione Mata'utia will start in the back row with Lachlan Fitzgibbon injured and Brodie Jones called up to the interchange. Mann has scored six tries in six games against the Titans.

Key match-up

Moeaki Fotuaika v David Klemmer. "Big Mo" has been one of the most improved players in the NRL this year. He has reached a level of consistency that all coaches want from the front-rowers. A meeting with the NSW and Australia regular will provide another opportunity for him to prove his worth.

Stat attack

For all the great things the Titans have done of late, there are still a couple of areas in which they need to improve. They have made more errors and missed more tackles than any other side in the competition.
