The Gold Coast Titans may have saved themselves the dishonour of winning the wooden spoon after a 28-12 win over the Canberra Raiders.
Gold Coast 28 def. Canberra 12
There will be little to play for other than pride as the Gold Coast Titans welcome the Canberra Raiders to Cbus Super Stadium. Join The Roar from 1.50pm (AEST) for live scores and coverage.
Both sides find themselves out of finals contention in very different circumstances. The Titans have been poor most of the year and find themselves in the dreaded wooden spoon position. While it’s a case of what might have been for the improved Raiders who hold a positive for and against (+4) despite winning just eight out of 21 games this season.
Gold Coast are looking for just their fourth home victory of the season and come into the game on the back of two straight defeats by the same scoreline of 36-14 to the Storm and the Bulldogs.
Canberra’s finals aspirations ended last week in heartbreaking fashion against Manly despite scoring 24 unanswered points to overturn a 16-0 deficit.
Aidan Sezer won’t play against the club he will be joining in 2016 after injuring his shoulder, meaning Daniel Mortimer moves to halfback, Beau Falloon to hooker and Kierran Moseley comes onto the bench. Ryan James and Nate Myles also return to bolster the forwards in place of Lachlan Burr and David Hala.
Jarrod Croker will be looking to remain in first place on the point scoring list, where he is currently tied with James Maloney on 198 points in 2015.
Similarly, a rare bright spot for the Titans in 2015, James Roberts needs just one try in his remaining three games to break a club record for most tries in a season.
The Raiders thumped the Titans 56-16 in Round 9, and after last week’s disappointment will be looking to take out their anger with a similar result.
Whilst the Titans welcome back Myles and James, they are lacking creativity in the halves with no Elgey or Sezer.
Raiders by 12.
