    Titans back in the groove: Bailey

    Gold Coast veteran Luke Bailey says the Titans have not left their run for the top four too late after an impressive upset of premiership favourite St George Illawarra on Friday night.

    The Titans came from behind to force extra time, where a cheeky field goal out of dummy half from Mat Rogers delivered victory with a minute remaining in the golden point period.

    The Titans' semi-finals hopes had begun to fade in recent weeks with three straight losses and six in their previous eight starts.

    But Bailey says Friday night's 11-10 win over the Dragons will give Gold Coast a platform to reignite its charge for a home semi-final.

    "It was a great morale booster for the team and, myself included, I think a few of the boys were lacking a bit of self belief," he said.

    "We've put together a couple of good 40-minute performances through the year and that was probably our first 80 minutes."

    The Titans' difficult run home - which includes top-four aspirants Parramatta, Sydney Roosters and Wests Tigers - begins this weekend with a tricky away fixture against the Warriors.

    "It hasn't come too late," Bailey said of the Titans' late-season push.

    "There's six or so tough games ahead before the semis so we'll still try and keep improving and maintain that intensity."

    Titans coach John Cartwright has played down the significance of the thrilling golden point triumph ahead of their trip to Auckland.

    Cartwright says Friday's victory was timely but the premiership table is far from settled.

    "You can't put a price on a win but there's no talk of season-changing victories because there's six games to go," he said.

    "I don't think even the minor premiership's settled to be honest with you so we've got to turn up with that type of effort again this week."

    Well no early return for Bird and Harrison, probably a good thing not to rush them back. Still a fantastic team, we have depth, that is for sure.

    I'm not convinced. Carty is always coy about who he names and who ends up playing.....

    Warriors v Gold Coast Titans, Mt Smart Stadium, Sunday midday (EST)

    The Adjudicator says: "While New Zealand rugby league getting ****y is pretty much a contradiction in terms, it is reasonable to say a humbling loss to the Rabbitohs is just what was needed in the city of sails. While a win could've seen the Warriors in a share of second place, they now know another loss could drop them back out of the eight – and it is exactly that kind of desperation that inspired their mid-season run. The Titans are rightfully chuffed after out-boring their equally unimaginative rivals St George Illawarra, but this week they may need to actually score some tries."

    Agree/disagree with The Adjudicator? Tell him, in 100 words or fewer, why your team will win this match. Email The Adjudicator , including your full name and where you're from

    I'm with u mate ... but how is a game that had 778 tackles (more than 8 per minute) & only 17 errors in a wet game be classed as boring ..., maybe the Adjudicator prefers to watch the Toyota Cup with score lines of 48-44..what a Wayne-Car

    I'm happy to be watching Friendy make 61 tackles, Bails 56 & Laffranchi 45 every week

    I also agree with Ryan & won't be surprised if Carty uses the numbers 19 & 20

    Titans stick with winning formula for Warriors clash



    The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans have named an unchanged 18-man squad for Sunday’s tough away clash against the New Zealand Warriors in Auckland.

    With five-eighth Greg Bird (hamstring) and lock Ashley Harrison (knee) still sidelined through injury, Jetstar Titans coach John Cartwright has opted to stick with the same squad which registered a spirited 11-10 golden point win over competition leaders the Dragons last Friday night.

    Match winner Mat Rogers will again line-up at five-eighth alongside captain Scott Prince in the halves, while Steve Michaels and Clinton Toopi remain in the centres.

    Utility Luke O’Dwyer has been included on an extended five-man interchange bench after being named as 18th man for last weekend’s win over the Dragons.

    The Titans have won four of the six matches played against the Warriors since 2007, with the Gold Coasters scoring a 30-10 win at Mount Smart Stadium in the corresponding game last year.

    Ropati and Locke ruled out for Warriors

    Centre Jerome Ropati and winger Kevin Locke have been ruled out of the New Zealand Warriors' National Rugby League (NRL) match against Gold Coast in Auckland on Sunday.

    Both left the field with injuries during the 28-38 loss away to South Sydney last weekend, with Ropati likely to be out for three weeks with a groin problem and Locke for two weeks with a hamstring complaint.

    Locke's unavailability means Bill Tupou comes in for a ninth appearance in his debut NRL season, while second rower Lewis Brown will be the replacement centre, a job he has held already this season.

    Apart from Tupou's return, there are two other changes in personnel to the starting 13, with Ukuma Ta'ai coming into the second row for Brown, and Ben Matulino in at prop for Jesse Royal, who joins a five-man interchange bench.

    Coach Ivan Cleary, who has had to deal with injuries all year, said it would have been nice to get through another week without any additions to the casualty list, "but that's the way it goes".

    "We've lost two more players and have been forced to shuffle our backline," he said today.

    "We've had to deal with situations like this all season so there's no point getting too worried about it."

    Of more concern for Cleary was the performance against the Rabbitohs after a five-match winning streak.

    "We weren't at the level we expect of ourselves," he said.

    "Generally we were a bit down but we can't afford to let it slip again this week. Every side presents a challenge in the NRL and Gold Coast will obviously come here with some confidence after beating the Dragons."

    The defeat to Souths dropped the Warriors down a spot to sixth on a compressed point table.

    They are one three sides on 24 points, with Manly above them and the Titans below on differential.

    New Zealand Warriors: Lance Hohaia, Bill Tupou, Brent Tate, Lewis Brown, Manu Vatuvei, James Maloney, Brett Seymour, Ben Matulino, Aaron Heremaia, Russell Packer, Simon Mannering (captain), Ukuma Ta'ai, Micheal Luck.

    Interchange (from): Ian Henderson, Jesse Royal, Jeremy Latimore, Jacob Lillyman, Joel Moon.

    Injuries strike Warriors

    The Warriors' injury curse continues with centre Jerome Ropati and wing Kevin Locke out for the match against the Gold Coast Titans in Auckland on Sunday.

    Both players are expected to be sidelined for at least two weeks – Ropati with a groin injury and Locke suffered a hamstring complaint in his side's 38-28 loss to the South Sydney Rabbitohs last week.

    Versatile back-rower Lewis Brown will slot in at centre and Bill Tupou replaces Locke for his ninth appearance of the season.

    With Brown reverting to the centres, Ukuma Ta'ai starts in the second-row and, in another change, Ben Matulino comes into the run-on combination in the front row. A five-man bench includes Jacob Lillyman, who was 18th man against the Rabbitohs, and Joel Moon.

    The defeat to the Bunnies broke a five match-winning streak and saw the Warriors drop one place from fifth to sixth on the NRL ladder. They are now tied with three other teams on 24-points.

    Warriors coach Ivan Cleary moved to play down the injury concerns.

    "It would have been nice to get through another week without injury issues but that's the way it goes. We've lost two more players and have been forced to shuffle our backline," Cleary said.

    "We've had to deal with situations like this all season so there's no point getting too worried about it."

    Of more concern for Cleary was the performance against the Rabbitohs.

    "We weren't at the level we expect of ourselves," he said.

    "Generally we were a bit down but we can't afford to let it slip again this week. Every side presents a challenge in the NRL and Gold Coast will obviously come here with some confidence after beating the Dragons."

    Team:

    1. Lance Hohaia, 2. Bill Tupou, 3. Brent Tate, 4. Lewis Brown, 5. Manu Vatuvei, 6. James Maloney, 7. Brett Seymour, 8. Ben Matulino, 9. Aaron Heremaia, 10. Russell Packer, 11. Simon Mannering (c), 12. Ukuma Ta'ai, 13. Micheal Luck. Interchange: 14, Ian Henderson, 15, Jesse Royal, 16. Jeremy Latimore, 17. Jacob Lillyman, 18. Joel Moon

    I too am happy to be "bored" with our performance this week if it means we play like we did last fri night thank you Mr Adjudictor!!! He very rarely gives the titans a rap - but I found the dragons game so exciting - was on the edge of my seat for the whole of it!!!! It is ranked right up there with beating the cheaters earlier this year for me!!! That too was an awesome game. I still think if we can continue to defend like we did our attack will just fall into place - it really does seem to work for us!!! Looking for a nice comfortable win against he warriors - we need to build on our points diff!!!
    Oh and I liked White starting in the team and then Hendo off the bench - just my opinion!!!

    Warriors v Titans Preview
    Mt Smart Stadium Sunday 2pm (NZ Time)

    Their might not be a more crucial game for these two sides in the run home than this Sunday afternoon clash in Auckland.

    If you call yourself a Warriors fan and you are close, you really should be at this game. And if you are a Titans fan with a way of coming up with the flight money and ticket cost, what are you waiting for?

    It?s sixth versus seventh, both on 24 competition points, both needing at least two more wins to be thinking finals.

    This could seriously be a case of winner moves on ? and loser doesn?t ? with some testing games to come for both sides.

    The Warriors battled hard against South Sydney, only to be over-run in the second half last week, while the Titans produced one of their best ever wins with a gritty and determined golden-point win over the Dragons at Kogarah.

    So the Titans have the momentum? but the Warriors have the home-field advantage. It all adds up to a must-see match!

    The home side will be missing winger Kevin Locke to injury but Bill Tupou slots in. Jerome Ropati is also hurt, forcing a reshuffle. Lewis Brown moves from the second row to centre with Ukuma Ta?ai coming into the second row.

    Ben Matulino has been rewarded with a starting spot at prop, pushing Jesse Royal to the bench while Jacob Lillyman and Joel Moon have been added to an extended reserves list.

    A win could get the side as high as third but a loss could see them plummet to 10th.

    Not surprisingly, the Titans look very similar to last weekend, with Michael Henderson named to start at prop and Matthew White coming from the bench. Luke O?Dwyer has been named the 18th man.
    They can potentially rise as high as third with a victory, or as low as 10th with a loss.

    Watch out Warriors: How good was Luke Bailey last week! Against his former club the Titans? prop destroyed everything in his path with 181 metres and 56 tackles plus three offloads. It certainly appears as if Bailey is on a mission to ensure his side plays finals football again this season after they meekly surrendered a place in the finals last year with consecutive losses.

    The Warriors? forwards need to get up in Bailey?s face otherwise he will dictate terms. With this match likely to be decided by field position (see below) it is imperative the home side focuses on shutting the ?Bull? down.

    Also, keep an eye on Anthony Laffranchi close to the try line as he is just one try away from 50 first grade tries.

    Watch out Titans: Five-eighth James Maloney is still pretty green in the NRL but some golden touches in matches make you realise he has a bright future.

    One gets the feeling he could be due an absolute stormer some time soon. He has a solid kicking game, averaging 287 metres, plus four line-breaks and four try assists ? but it is his 10 try assists and eight tries that shows he has the goods.

    As an astute support runner, ball player and ball runner, Maloney is one Warrior the Titans need to keep close watch on. If they disrespect his ability, he may just emphatically prove his potential here.

    Where it will be won: Field position is the crucial factor here. Both sides have shown willingness in some games to defend their line to the death but in other weeks the wall hasn?t been as strong.

    At any rate, the trick is to keep the opposition out of your 20-metre zone so you don?t have to back your goal-line defence too often.

    The Titans have a distinct statistical edge when it comes to average metres gained, with 1403 metres a match compared to the Warriors? 1299 metres, but the Warriors are conceding just 1253 metres on average to the Titans? 1331 metres.

    If the home side can contain the Titans? go-forward like they have other sides, they will bring the match back to level pegging at worst. If they can then up their own input, they could swing the ledger back to their favour.

    The Gold Coast forwards need to take a leaf out of Luke Bailey?s book and get moving. Anthony Laffranchi and Mark Minichiello are always good for some hard yards but Matthew White and Michael Henderson need to lift another level.

    The history: Played 6; Warriors 2, Titans 4. The Titans are on a four-game streak against the Warriors, including a 24-18 win way back in Round 1 on the Gold Coast. There have been two previous meetings at Mt Smart Stadium, with the honours shared one apiece.

    The six-point margin in Round 1 was the closest these teams have ever been, with the average winning margin in all clashes being just less than 16 points.

    Conclusion: You can make a case to support either side in this clash. The Titans had been on a slide but they were extremely tough against the Dragons last Friday night and ground out a win ? against the best grinding team in the comp.

    The Warriors showed the same sort of form a few weeks ago against Penrith, so we know the two sides can defend if they want to.

    In attack the talent is there with players like Scott Prince and Manu Vatuvei? it?s a tough one, so go with your gut feel.
