    Big game for the Tigers, both sides with a few injury concerns though. If Ellis, McKinnon, Fulton & Gibbs are out with Lawrence, Titans have the edge.

    Going into the last round in 2005, our only injury was Payten, I seem to recall. This year we have Ellis, McKinnon, Fulton, Gibbs, Lawrence, Sankdo, Moltzen, Tuiaki & Moors injured. It will be an incredible effort to firstly beat the Titans and then to progress in the finals.

    Ellis, McKinnon, Gibbs and Fulton will be back for the finals, Gibbs and Fulton may play in this match even.

    Only Lawrence should be missing for the finals really, we've done without Tuiaki and Moltzen most of the year.

    It's a tough toll but no excuses once we kick off in two weeks. And IMO we have more depth now than we did in 05.

    The old heads are in doubt for the Titans... Bailey, Laffranchi, Presto & Rogers.

    I hear rumours Moltzen's back training and may even attempt to get himself back for this week.

    Though I don't want them to win, Gold Coast should win this. The Tigers' injury concerns are a worry only a week out from the finals.

    I think the Titans suffered from a tough match against the Roosters last Monday and the Sharks are always tough (despite their record). 3 games in 11 days is the shortest possible turnaround, so they still might be feeling the effects...but the Tigers are beat up and have a short turnaround themselves.

    Both teams with big injury concerns. Tigers at least have top 4 spot sewn up. Titans fighting for their's now.
    For some reason, I think the Tigers will win this. Just seem to have more momentum now.

    Another good match shaping up here. Could be the match of the round, both very good attacking teams.
    Lean towards the Tits only on their home record....

    This is very interesting, all to play for here, the Tigers aiming for top 2 and the Titans aiming for top 4.

    I really don’t know who to pick, ill go for a draw….. even after extra time.

    Both teams have a ton of injury concerns. I'll go with the Titans just cause they're at home.

    If Bryce Gibbs and Liam Fulton play (some chance) then I'd be more confident but as it stands I'm leaning towards the Titans.

    This is a final a week early. Titans if beaten will most likely drop from the Top 4, quite possibly to 6th, but will likely finish 3rd if they can win by 10 or more. The Tigers cannot finish lower than 4th which is where they won the comp from in '05. Titans with more to play for and I think they'll prevail at home.

    There's talk Daniela will be ruled out, Meaney may come in to fullback and Brown to move into the centres.

    Confirmed Meaney has been training with the Tigers and will travel to the Gold Coast with the NRL squad.
