    Titans by 6. The Wobbie curse has returned to Leichhardt and not even the scoreboard is happy about it.

    In the same match, Mbye and Farah will become the first two players to play consecutive first grade matches against the same opponent in the same season.

    Mbye played his last Canterbury match in Round 15 v Titans at Belmore, while Farah played his last South Sydney match in Round 14 v Titans at Cbus Super Stadium.

    (That's assuming they're both picked).

    With two different clubs that is. The entire Penrith and Manly sides played consecutive matches against the same opponents last year.

    Correct, referring to two consecutive clubs, and also the regular season. Final round and first week finals is a relatively common occurence by comparison.

    First and second first grade matches both against the same team but playing for different teams.

    Tigers have added another Bulldogs reject and old man Robbie, hence they're worse than last game.

    Titans by a few jugs.

    Not a bad reject at all is Mbye. Just what they need, Farah too, considering ET has been wearing the 9 in recent times. They can't mess about, they need to start winning immediately if this club is to have any chance. Expect the titties to hold their shape in this one.

    I’m not going to pretend they are marquee signings, however they are infinitivley better players (in those positions) then Lolohea and Elijah Taylor.

    Farah is still better than many other NRL hookers including Taylor who is a good second rower only. Mbye is much like Lolohea tbh. Both very casual attitude, don't put thier bodies on the line etc.
