Game Preview.
Both sides are stuttering in consistency and will be hoping to gain momentum this week with a solid win. 

Key Match Ups.

Match Up #1: Bryce Cartwright v Matt Moylan

Both former Penrith team mates are playing opposite each other in the five eight position. 

Cartwright and Moylan are both naturally talented footballers but consistency isn’t their forte. 

Either playmaker will want bragging rights over his mate in this enticing match up. 

Match Up #2: Ashley Taylor v Chad Townsend

The 2 no. 7’s will be directing their sides around the park and wanting to do whatever they can to get their respective sides the win this week. 

Match Up #3: Ryan James v Andrew Fifita

Another possible State of Origin jersey up for grabs will spur Ryan James on to get one over former Blue Andrew Fifita who turned his back on he Origin side for his native Tonga. 

Nath’s Prediction
While the Sharks were in control against Penrith it was still a close one and Titans are a side that can sneak up on you if you’re not careful. Titans by 4
