Round 18 of the NRL season kicks off with a double-header at Cbus Super Stadium, with the Gold Coast Titans playing host to the Parramatta Eels. Tune into events on the Gold Coast here on The Roar with live scores from 6pm (AEST).

With State of Origin Game 3 also played in the city, the Gold Coast has never had this much rugby league action going on. The Titans will be hoping it can galvanise the population to get behind them as they strive for a drought-breaking finals berth.

The Titans sit tenth, but up until their 44-6 thumping of the Raiders before last week’s bye, appeared to be falling apart. Four consecutive losses, two of them comfortably, saw them fall behind the Sharks, Dragons and Knights in contending for those last few spots in the eight. But their attack remains powerful enough to challenge even the best sides in the competition, as they proved with a fighting loss to the Storm last month.

The Titans have the luxury of going in unchanged for this match, with AJ Brimson’s recent return from injury consigning young gun Jayden Campbell to the reserves. The suspension that saw David Fifita miss Origin 3 leaves him cherry-ripe for this vital match.

The Eels’ finals hopes are in no jeopardy, but the Rabbitohs’ recent hot streak has seen them fall to fourth on the ladder. They’ve had two weeks to ruminate on their one-point loss to the Panthers, with Mitchell Moses missing the game-winning penalty after the siren to cost them a vital two points.

Hooker Reed Mahoney returns from a shoulder injury, while Junior Paulo and Mitchell Moses have been named to back up from Origin 3 on Wednesday.
