    Gold Coast Titans
    J Fogarty, L Baker, H Hunt, S Johnson, J Teo, T Dawney, K Elgey, O Percy, T Rowles, T Laurenson, N Harrold, S Harold, D Hartin.
    Bench: M Hall, J Nia, S Gee, M Beddow, E Murphy, S Irwin, J Durheim.

    Penrith Panthers
    K Moss, T Satini, T Eisenhuth, G Jennings, Z Mackay, D Foster, T Evans, S Hollis, B South, R Campbell-Gillard, V Tia-Kilifi, T Vailea, C Carl.
    Bench: C Knight, C Smith, M Lodge, B Cartwright.

    Bottom Line
    It will be a tough trip south for the Titans, who are coming off a great victory over the Eels last Sunday. They went one step closer to losing the wooden spoon, but have a tough game here before they play the Sea Eagles in the final round.

    The Panthers were leading the competition only a matter of weeks ago, but have struggled recently, losing four in a row after five-eighth Harry Siejka ended his season with knee surgery.

    Last week?s win will give a lot of confidence to the Titans, particularly fullback Jamal Fogarty. He was excellent last week, running for 209m, with a try, 3 try-assists, 9 tackle breaks and 3 line breaks. His opposite number is Panthers star Kieran Moss, who himself has been in good form. Moss scored a double against the Warriors last week, and one last time they met in Round 15, including over 200m run.

    In that last clash, the Panthers blew away the Titans early, taking a 34-0 lead into the half time break. It was the Panthers outside backs who ran amok that day, as they spread the ball and tore the Titans apart on the fringes. This is where Nick Harrold and Sam Harold will be very important. shutting down NYC Team of the Year member Vaipuna Tia Kilifi.

    If the Titans can slow the Panthers momentum, which is what the Warriors have done in recent times, they can get the victory in this game. But the question remains who will take out the battle of the fullbacks?

    I've been impressed by what I've seen of Jamal Fogarty, so far this year. The young fella seems to have it in him to reach for bigger and better things in time to come. Just hope we can retain him long term.

    If someone can answer this it would be great, how does the coach of the NYC be in America with two games left in the regular season, not a good outlook I don't think for a team that is struggling
