The numbers game v Titans
Last time we took on the Titans, there were players who put in the BIG numbers.
We take a quick look at the Sharks players who put in for their team but were unable to get the side over the line in the 18-all draw.
Playing on the right wing in 2015, Valentine Homes put in one of his trademark performances, scoring a try and running for over 150 metres.
Although he will be playing in the fullback position this weekend, expect Holmes to run the ball back at pace and again offer his side one of the most lethal attacking weapons in the competition.
The ever-reliable captain of the Sharks, Paul Gallen put in a trademark performance against the Titans, almost cracking the 200 metre mark in attacking runs.
Making over 30 tackles alongside his running metres in the humid Gold Coast conditions, Gallen’s effort was absolutely stellar.
Expect much of the same in this ANZAC Day Round clash.
One of his most complete games of 2016.
Andrew Fifita was dominant in attack, scoring a try and running for 175 metres, getting his side into good field position in the process.
Playing an hour in the middle of the field, on a humid Gold Coast night, these stats go to prove Andrew Fifita was one in form customer. Let’s hope we see more of this on Saturday night!
Having made his State of Origin debut for NSW by this stage, Wade Graham had the taste for representative football and was ready to match it with the Titans pack.
Running for a whoping 251 metres and producing 31 tackles, Graham showed his versitility as aa genuine top-level back-rower.
Off the back of last week’s stellar performance against the Penrith Panthers, be sure to see another mammoth effort from Wade as he looks to keep his side in the winner’s circle.
