NRL Match Previews - Broncos v Titans (Round 10)

14-05-2010 07:35PM at Suncorp Stadium

Referee: Shayne Hayne and Matt Cecchin
Touch Judges: Jeff Younis and Phil Haines
Referee: Steve Clark

The return of Peter Wallace may help the Broncos... the confidence from their big win last week in Melbourne may help the Broncos... the unbelievable form of Sam Thaiday may help the Broncos.... but on Friday night at Suncorp against the raging Gold Coast Titans, nothing will help them. John Cartwright's team is on an impressive 3 match winning streak including last minute victories on the road at Brookvale and Newcastle. Tough places to win games.

The Titans have it all - a fearless and inspiration leader in Scott Prince, some mongrel in his halves partner Greg Bird, a group of hard working forwards and some lightning fast backs. Brisbane have obviously been inconsistent this year and we predict this continues as Nathan Friend and Prince guide their troops to another impressive away win. A definite highlight of this match will be watching Sam Thaiday launch himself into the Titans defensive line as he has done against opponents all year.

My Man of the Match Prediction: Anthony Laffranchi
My Tip: Titans 26-18
