    Providing Shannon is in form at the time, it would probably take at least 2 injuries between Campbell, Zillman, Mead & Gordon before a spot would open up. He might get a bench spot before then though - alot of "if's" so who knows??????

    If the Titans can play Manly like they did the 2nd half against Melbourne they can win. We know they have it in them, just have to produce.

    Keep it close in the first half and get them in the 2nd. For some reason Manly haven't been having great 2nds halves and for the most part the Titans have been a 2nd half team this year.
    don't quote me on this but i think theres a stat saying teams winning after monday night have poor records the following week.

    Default Titans prepare to storm Brookvale

    TITANS hardman Michael Henderson is expecting nothing short of an all-out forwards war when the Gold Coast invade Manly's Brookvale Oval fortress on Monday.

    The Titans playing group turned on each other during a brutal training session at Robina yesterday, with tough guys Bodene Thompson and Greg Bird casualties as coach John Cartwright put his troops through a series of full-contact defensive drills.

    The club is looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss to the Dragons, while the Sea Eagles are fresh from literally belting Melbourne into submission.

    Cartwright said the physical session was designed to prepare his players for a torrid encounter with the form side of the competition.

    "They are a tough side to handle if they turn up with that same intensity," said Cartwright.

    "We have got to make sure we go down there and are ready to match that. There's a couple of areas that we needed to address.

    "You never tell them to go at full tilt but today they did.

    "We try and make everything competitive, you do that and you generally find it brings the best out in them.

    "Nobody likes getting beaten in a game or against each other."

    Bird was simply felled for a couple minutes thanks to a mistimed hit by utility Luke O'Dwyer, who this week returned to full-contact training following knee surgery last year.


    But there is a slight concern over young prop Thompson, who was seen nursing a shoulder injury.

    Thompson is scheduled to return from a three-week suspension this Saturday for Burleigh in the Queensland Cup.

    Titans front-rower Henderson, who was a standout in last week's dour clash against St George Illawarra, predicted Manly would try to muscle them out of the game like they did to Melbourne last Monday.

    "Manly were very clinical in the first half, they just bashed them out of it," said Henderson.

    "Manly did all the damage in the first half and I guess they will be looking to do the same to us.

    "We just have to put our bodies on the line, get numbers in the tackle and control the middle of the ruck. If they get quick play the balls and stop us from going forward, we are going to be no hope."

    Henderson said the Titans forwards would carry even more responsibility into the match, with centre Mat Rogers joining skipper Scott Prince in the injury ward.

    "We have just had to simplify the way we play," he said. "Because those guys are such influential players, we have to simplify everything to make everyone's job easier.

    "We want them in the side, but it probably helps to miss some key players at certain stages because it could happen at the important time of the year.

    "But it doesn't matter who your halves are, if your forwards aren't going forward you are not going to control the game anyway."

    Default Manly test of Titans' road form

    IT was the place where the Titans' stunning slide out of premiership contention started last year.

    But the return to Brookvale Oval holds no fears for the Gold Coast as they attempt to smash one of their last hoodoos.

    The Titans have never won at Brookvale Oval, falling well short in all three previous attempts.

    Aside from road trips to Melbourne and Canberra, the Titans suffered their heaviest loss against the Sea Eagles in the final round of last year, a 38-4 drubbing that robbed the club of any momentum heading into their maiden finals campaign.

    After going down to Manly, the Titans tumbled out of the play-offs in straight sets with a 40-32 loss to Brisbane and a 27-2 pummelling at the hands of eventual grand finalists Parramatta.

    "We got dusted last year," said Titans prop Michael Henderson.

    "They are tough at Brookvale, but that is just another obstacle.

    "The past is the past and we just have to look forward."

    The clashes between the Titans and Manly have developed into one of the young club's fiercest rivalries.

    The drama between the two club stems back to when coach John Cartwright was fined $5000 for confronting the video referee the first time the two sides met in 2007.


    In 2008 Titans hooker Nathan Friend's season ended in suspension, after punching Sea Eagles prop Josh Perry in the face in reaction to an off-the-ball shot on teammate Daniel Conn.

    The gutsy rake backed it up last year by branding the then defending premiers '****y', 'arrogant' and 'disrespectful' in the lead-up to their Round 11 clash at Skilled Park.

    But that match was also not without drama, as the Coast nabbed an 18-17 win thanks to a controversial penalty that left Sea Eagles boss Des Hasler fuming.
