A fierce rivalry gets back underway as the Gold Coast Titans and North Queensland Cowboys clash at Cbus Super Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 2pm (AEST).
Despite getting trounced by Melbourne a few weeks ago, coach Justin Holbrook would have to be happy with how Gold Coast have gone over the last month. They’ve knocked off the Warriors at home and have pushed the Panthers and Roosters all the way over the last fortnight. They’ll be quietly confident of stealing a win today.
For the Cowboys, a change in coach hasn’t yet resulted in a change of fortunes. North Queensland have been competitive, but losses to Manly and Canberra under interim coach Josh Hannay have seen their losing run extend to five matches. They haven’t put 20 points on the board in any of those games.
The Titans will need to crack an almighty hoodoo to get up today; they’ve lost their last ten matches against the Cowboys, a streak that dates back to March 2014. North Queensland have won on their last three visits to Cbus Super Stadium, while Gold Coast have won just one of their last 12 home games.
