    Best hope for Titans is if the Warriors don't have their minds on the job with whole Cleary going to Penrith thing. But over the bye week I'd expect it's been dealt with and now they'll go about the rest of the season.

    Titans to play the warriors back into form.

    Would be stupid if we didn't bomb the shit out of Rankin.

    It'll be close. With the return of Luck we have potentially the most ultra defensive back row in existence with Mannering/Luck/Taylor. Then outwide at centre we have Berrigan and Brown, ensuring our wingers will get no ball other than hit ups and bomb attempts.

    This Warriors team is designed to grind and as a result it won't be a blow out unless the Titans absolutely drop their bundle or Johnson/Locke/Mateo do some individual things.

    All I ask is that at some stage Manu runs over the top of Prince. Nothing against Prince, because he never takes a backwards step, but I can't remember too many Titans games where Prince hasn't found himself flying backwards at one stage or another trying to tackle Manu. I'm a sucker for tradition.

    Titans are one of the worst teams I can remember

    Warriors should be shot if they drop this one

    Might play into the Titans favour a little in that wet weather means low scoring game and the Titans don't have a whole lot of points in 'em.
    If the opposition doesn't score more than two tries the Titans have half a chance.

    Agree...this game will be close if the Tits can match the Warriors in the forwards.
