THE LONG HARD LOOK WITH MIKE WILSON
Gold Coast Titans v Manly Warringah Sea Eagles
Skilled Park, 7:00pm
Brett Stewart has been ruled out of tonight’s clash on the Gold Coast and Will Hopoate will replace him at fullback. Manly will have a bit of extra motivation to win this one, a victory by 4 or more points will see them move to 3rd on the competition table. Preston Campbell will play fullback for the second consecutive week for the Titans and after he visibly struggled under the high ball last week, Manly will be testing him with bomb after bomb. The Titans are struggling a bit without the defensive efforts of Nathan Friend up front. Brad Meyers announced through the week that he will retire immediately. Meyers has been struggling to recover from a wrist injury.
Manly goal-kicker and halfback Daly Cherry-Evans is currently the worst of the regular kickers in the comp with a strike rate of 62%
Mike’s Best Bet: None
