The Gold Coast Titans aim to continue their late-season resurgence, against a Canberra Raiders side aiming to build momentum. Join The Roar for live scores from 3pm (AEST).
The Titans have improved vastly over the last month, but have a couple of big outs with skipper Kevin Proctor failing to beat his biting charge, and Jai Arrow succumbing to a shoulder injury.
Wingers Anthony Don and Phillip Sami return to their respective flanks, forcing Corey Thompson onto an extended bench.
Canberra looked wobbly when trailing the Brisbane Broncos at halftime, despite the final winning margin being their healthiest of the season.
A similar first-half effort against a Queensland team in much better form than the woeful Broncos may not be as easy to reverse. Hudson Young returns to the starting side with Ryan Sutton reverting to the pine.
