    MoFo was always going backwards on his learning pathway but that’s what he needs. Cartwright just needs to be given a job commensurate with his skills and understanding. Run hard, hit holes, put your body in position to tackle and don’t listen to too much outside noise. To be fair, he could be so much better than one-dimensional Proctor.

    Good team list this week. Reckon it was the right decision to drop MoFo (awesome nickname) who has shown that he can handle first grade but give him a few weeks back in QCUP to work on a few more areas of his game. Carty looked to show signs of improvement last week, tucked the ball under his arm and ran instead of looking for a stupid ball. And his defence looked much better too. Hopefully it wasn't just a one week thing. Tough game ahead but we are in with a chance if we play to our best.

    Not much pressure on us this week however Easts wouldn’t want to drop this game. I like the 17 too we are putting on the park. I’m starting to think we are a sneaky cheeky chance with some luck and non cheating Sydney refereeing.

    Titans have played the Roosters 16 times, with an even split 8 each way.

    1-1 at Central Coast.

    Roosters v Titans: Roosters unchanged as Proctor returns
    https://www.nrl.com/

    Apparently last week's loss to the Broncos was harder for the Roosters to stomach than any other defeat this season and so it should've been.

    They led 22-16 with six minutes remaining and had controlled the game for the previous 15-20 minutes, only for the Broncos to snatch victory with two of the best solo tries of the season.

    After that result they should be mad enough and hungry enough to return to the winner's circle this week.

    Latrell Mitchell probably cemented a spot in the NSW Origin team with last week's dazzling display and will be looking for more of the same against the competition's worst defensive side.

    The Titans eased the pressure slightly with last week's home win over Newcastle snapping a five-game losing streak. They are back on the road this week and will probably have to produce something special to conquer the star-studded Roosters.

    Key match-up: Matching the Roosters in the forwards will be a focal point for the Titans and that places a lot of responsibility on the likes of Ryan James, Jai Arrow and Jarrod Wallace to make their collective presence felt. The Roosters clearly have an edge in class in the backs and the Titans will give themselves a good chance if they hold their own up front.

    For the Roosters to win: No doubt the Roosters felt last week's loss was the one that got away. If nothing else they would've learned a valuable lesson that should stay in the back of their minds for the rest of their 2018 campaign - no single-digit lead is safe. If the Roosters have their way in the forwards the Mitchells and Tedescos could run riot in the backs.

    For the Titans to win: After getting the monkey off their backs with last week's drought-busting win over the Knights, the Titans should be feeling good about themselves. They need to ride that positive vibe and hit the Roosters with everything they can in the first 20 minutes, try to get a lead and force the Chooks to play catch-up.

    Roosters stat attack: It might come as a surprise that the Roosters have a terrible record on the Central Coast, losing nine of the 10 games they have played there. On a more positive note the Chooks have won four of their past five clashes with the Titans.

    Titans stat attack: Jai Arrow made a welcome return last week against Newcastle, leading the Titans in tackles (40) and run metres (145). Arrow is desperate to play in the Origin arena and his impressive performance wouldn't have gone unnoticed by Maroons selectors.

    And another thing: Roosters five-eighth Luke Keary will play his 100th NRL game when he takes on the Titans. Some Rabbitohs fans still haven't forgiven Keary for joining the enemy, but they aren't as steamed up as they once were with the way Cody Walker has been starring for the Bunnies.

    Sydney Roosters v Gold Coast Titans, Saturday 3pm at Central Coast Stadium

    Roosters: 1 James Tedesco, 2 Joseph Manu, 3 Latrell Mitchell, 4 Mitchell Aubusson, 5 Blake Ferguson, 6 Luke Keary, 7 Cooper Cronk, 8 Siosiua Taukeiaho, 9 Jake Friend (c), 10 Dylan Napa, 11 Boyd Cordner (c), 12 Ryan Matterson, 13 Isaac Liu

    Interchange: 14 Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, 15 Zane Tetevano, 16 Kurt Baptiste, 17 Victor Radley

    Reserves: 18 Nat Butcher, 19 Sitili Tupouniua, 20 Eloni Vunakece, 21 Mitchell Cornish

    The Roosters are unchanged from last week's loss to Brisbane.

    Titans: 1 Michael Gordon, 2 Anthony Don, 3 Dale Copley, 4 Brenko Lee, 5 Phillip Sami, 6 AJ Brimson, 7 Ashley Taylor, 8 Jarrod Wallace, 9 Nathan Peats, 10 Ryan James (c), 11 Kevin Proctor, 12 Keegan Hipgrave, 13 Jai Arrow

    Interchange: 14 Mitch Rein, 15 Max King, 16 Jack Stockwell, 17 Bryce Cartwright

    Reserves: 18 Moeaki Fotuaika, 19 Konrad Hurrell, 20 Kane Elgey, 21 Morgan Boyle

    Kevin Proctor's return from a groin strain pushes Ryan James to prop, Max King to the bench and Moeaki Fotuaika to the reserves.

    Head-to-head: Played 16; Roosters 8 wins, Titans 8 wins
    Matches at venue: Played 1; Titans 1 win
    2017 results: Roosters won 32-18 at Cbus Super Stadium in round 1; Roosters won 20-16 at Allianz Stadium in round 26
    Points per game: Roosters 19.5; Titans 18.5
    Points conceded per game: Roosters 15.3; Titans 26.6
    Televised: Live on Fox League

    Steve Turner's prediction: Errors and missed tackles really hurt the Roosters last weekend and they will be thinking it was a game that was there to be won. Latrell Mitchell is their strike weapon and the more they keep him involved, the better they will be. Meanwhile, the Titans finally ended a five-game losing streak with a win over the Knights. Ash Taylor was brilliant along with many of their rookies, but it's consistency for the Titans which has been an issue. They need to produce those performances every week and it gets no bigger than this week against the Roosters. The Titans have only won one away game this year and I can't see them making it another on Saturday afternoon.

    Tip: Roosters by 8

    Wackos Whispers

    Roosters vs Titans

    The Roosters expected to be 1-17 with no late changes expected. Daniel Tupou trained with the squad for the last week and will return from a pectoral injury next week. The Titans are expected to have one change with Phillip Sami in doubt due to a calf injury that he picked up at training, I expect him to be ruled out with Konrad Hurrell to come in at right centre with Brenko Lee moving to left wing. Kevin Proctor just has to get through the captain’s run on Friday to be a confirmed starter after recovering from a groin strain. Michael Gordon picked up a cork last week and that was the reason why Taylor took a couple of goal kicks but Gordon will resume goal kicking duties this week.

    Sami and Stockwell out from injury. Should be Brenko on the wing and Hurrell in the centres...

    Bad news about Sami and Stockwell but good news is that Ryan Materson isn't lining up for the Roosters. He could have been very damaging.
