NYC ROUND #8 | v Gold Coast Titans

The Vodafone Junior Warriors will be aiming for their fourth consecutive home win of the season when they meet the Gold Coast Titans in their eighth-round NYC match at Mount Smart Stadium tomorrow (9.40am kick-off).

In their three home games so far they’ve had convincing victories over Parramatta (38-10), Brisbane (40-14) and Wests Tigers (38-4) alongside one win on the road and last week’s 28-28 draw with North Queensland.

They go into tomorrow’s clash lying fifth on the table while the Titans, who lost 24-36 at home to Penrith last week, are 11th with a three wins-four losses record.

Vodafone Junior Warriors coach Kelvin Wright named a side showing an unchanged backline but some movement in the starting forwards with Paul Tuli off the bench to start at prop, regular front rower Bunty Afoa switched to loose forward and Jazz Tevaga going to the interchange. Hooker Sheldon Pitama and prop Amoni Tufui are again listed on the bench with Lewis Soosemea brought in for his second appearance of the season.
