Warriors coach Andrew McFadden has sprung a surprise by bringing David Fusitu’a, who returned from a long injury layoff in NSW Cup a fortnight ago, in at centre at the expense of Konrad Hurrell. Sam Rapira also comes back into first grade after a long break for impressive rookie Albert Vete, and will be joined on the bench by debutant Raymond Faitala-Mariner, who replaces Dominique Peyroux. The Titans will be without forwards Agnatius Paasi, Ryan Simpkins and the suspended David Taylor, but Nate Myles returns at prop, Lachlan Burr replaces Taylor in the second-row and Matt Robinson comes onto the bench along with Eddy Pettybourne, who sat out last week with suspension.
The Warriors hold a 10-6 advantage in matches against the Titans since 2007, including 5-2 at Mt Smart. The Warriors have won eight straight in the rivalry, with the Titans’ last win coming during the 2010 finals. In their last encounter, the Warriors whipped the Titans 42-0 in Auckland.
The Warriors came agonisingly close to pulling off an away upset over the Cowboys in Round 7, leading for 75 minutes before going down 28-24 in the dying stages. An inexcusable number of handling errors brought the Warriors undone once again. The 11th-placed side have the fourth-best attack and the 13th-ranked defence in the competition. The Titans are riding high after winning three of their last four – including commanding wins over Parramatta (38-16) and Penrith (32-6) in the last fortnight. Rookie halfback Kane Elgey has been a real find, while James Roberts sits atop the NRL’s tryscoring ladder. Currently in 12th, the Titans boast the premiership’s sixth-best attack and 12th-ranked defence.
Ben Matulino has been one of the NRL’s form forwards, ranked seventh in the NRL for runs and run metres, and equal-first for offloads. His marquee front-row battle with Titans co-captain Myles will set the tone for the afternoon.
The Warriors are 17-10 overall and against the start at home since the beginning of 2013, including a 13-4 record (10-7 ATS) as home favourite; they have lost just one of their last 11 going in as favourites on home soil. The Titans are 12-15 on the road (18-9 against the line) over the last three seasons. The Titans’ daytime record from 2013-15 is 13-12 (15-10 ATS), while the Warriors’ is 11-16 overall and against the start – but improving to 10-8 (overall and ATS) in day games at Mt Smart. Five of the Warriors’ eight straight wins over the Titans have been by 13+ margins, but three of the last four were 1-12 victories while all but two of those matches produced 40+ points.
The Titans’ outstanding form over the last month can’t be ignored, but the Warriors have been building ever so slowly and have to be favoured at home – although the $3.30 about an away upset is enticing. The hosts must contain James Roberts, but their plethora of game-breakers – Johnson, Lolohea, Townsend and Kata – gives them a significant edge. Consider the Titans with the 8.5 start in what should be a hard-fought and high-scoring encounter.
