The Titans finally posted another victory last week albeit against a Dragons side weakened by the loss of representative players. The victory will at least bestow the players with confidence which is of utmost importance heading into the second half of the season. Beau Henry has signed with the Titans throughout the week and begins his contract immediately, but will not play this week.
Souths have battled gallantly without their key forwards in the last 3 weeks but unfortunately have posted 3 straight losses. I think they will only be helped by the fact that they come off a bye and I think they will be too good fresh and at home.
Mike’s Best Bet: None
