Team Changes: Titans are 1-13 per program. Ben Ridge is onto the bench with Mark Minichiello ill this week and Ryan James not required. For the Tigers, David Nofoaluma comes onto the wing in place of the injured Marika Koroibete, and Liam Fulton's concussion last weekend sees him miss out this week, with Keith Galloway starting at prop and Cory Paterson coming into a starting second row position.

A very good afternoon to you and welcome to Cbus Super Stadium in Robina for Member's Round 2. Today sees the Gold Coast Titans in their first home game of the season, hosting the Wests Tigers. It's a lovely day for footy (if a little hot) with a current temperature of 30 degrees and due to the magic of the interwebs I can tell you it may peak at 32 degrees a bit later this afternoon. The home side are coming off a scrappy win against the Sharks with little Albert Kelly proving the difference. The Tigers will do well to contain Albert, though the rewards may just come if they can, after being thoroughly outplayed by a hot and cold Dragons side. James Tedesco was a standout for Tigers in that game though youngster Luke Brooks, at half back seemingly has the rugby league world at his feet, and will look to show people that he is worthy of all the buzz.. I'll be back with any changes before kick off.
