NRL Round 8 Footy Tips

Warriors vs Titans

Thursday, April 25, 2024

2:00 PM @ Go Media Stadium

This ANZAC Day, the Warriors welcome the Titans to Go Media Stadium for the first time since 2015, promising a cracker of a match. The Warriors, fresh from a drubbing, are eager to turn the tide, while the Titans, still hunting for their first win, showed a spark last round that could ignite at any moment.

Key Injuries:

  • New Zealand Warriors:
    • Freddy Lussick: Suspension
    • Bunty Afoa: Hamstring
    • Marata Niukore: Foot
    • Chanel Harris-Tavita: Leg
    • Luke Metcalf: Leg
    • Curt Capewell: Throat
    • Demetric Sifakula: ACL
    • Jazz Tevaga: Hamstring
  • Gold Coast Titans:
    • Keenan Palasia: Quad
    • Phillip Sami: Ankle

Head-to-Head Stats:

  • The Titans have outshone the Warriors in four of the last six meetings.
  • Last clash: Warriors lost 28-18 at Cbus Super Stadium.

With the Warriors likely to break their dry spell and edge out the Titans, making this a match as exciting as a sprint to the fridge during halftime! Grab your chips; this one’s going to have more twists than a pretzel!

With both sides leaking points this season, we’re in for a scoring spree. So, buckle up for a match that promises more yelling than an opera!

The Roosters are tipped to cluck their way to victory, possibly pushing the total score beyond the 43.5 line.
