    Tits by 10. Raiders could win though considering the Tits have lost their past 2 matches at Canberra by 46 and 42 points or something like that.

    Raiders by 8.

    Titans hate playing down in canberra and our confidence should be high after the storm beating.

    we have a good record against the tits down at canberra, but after the high of such a mamoth win last week, i feel a massive low coming on this week

    in saying that, if we can managed to do the job on the tits, on the back of those two wins it could really spur us on to another late surge

    might have to bring some fireworks or an airhorn to this one as payback for the titans "explosion" tactic.

    I hope all canberra players haven't forgotten about the selfish, traitor zillman. They should target those dodgy knees of his.

    Some interesting stats...

    At Canberra Stadium:
    Played 2, Canberra 2 Gold Coast Titans 0

    Biggest scorelines:
    Canberra 46-4 Gold Coast, 2008 (3rd biggest loss in Titans history)
    Canberra 56-10 Gold Coast, 2007 (biggest loss in Titans history)

    Record for any Gold Coast team in Canberra:

    Played 9, Canberra Raiders 9 Gold Coast 0

    Biggest Scorelines:
    Canberra 56-6 Gold Coast, 1995 (2nd biggest loss in pre-Titans Gold Coast history)
    Canberra 56-10 Gold Coast, 2007
    Canberra 50-6 Gold Coast, 1988
    Canberra 48-4 Gold Coast, 1993
    Canberra 46-4 Gold Coast, 2008

    Interesting that, despite how bad the Gold Coast of the early 90's was and how good the Raiders were at that time, both Titans visits to Canberra rank in the top 5 biggest losses for a Gold Coast team in Canberra.

    It's fair to say that Canberra has not been a happy hunting ground at all for any side with Gold Coast in the name, with over 50% of matches having a winning margin of 42+ and long may that continue.

    If Raiders win this it could spur them on a charge to the 8 with several teams on the fringe struggling with injuries (notably Penrith). But a loss would finish them off for the year you'd think.

    With several key players out, it won't be an easy task for the Titan's. It's a different team compared to the last two years though and they are finding ways to win tight games where as Raiders definately know how to lose a game. Carty will have the boys firing. Titans 13+

    I'm supremely confident (yes, that's right - supremely) about us winning. As a direct result of me being confident of a Raiders win I have just lost all confidence in us.

    If we lose this we can kiss good bye any hope of making the Finals. We have already given up too many games at home, another one would spell the end.

    Titans have to win down there at some point. Right?
    I'm picking the Raiders.

    Raiders by 20.

    When the tits lost down there in 07, they had the likes of prince, they had campbell, they had bailey, and still got towelled, this time they've got a lot of injuries, they'll get trampled in the forwards and Dugan will run riot.

    You have smashed us both times there last 2 years, means SFA.

    Different team, Different mentality.

    Expect a fight for the 2 points
