Andrew Johns and Brad Fittler picked the Titans to rock a small upheaval this weekend, choosing them to make Ricky Stuart’s misery worse after the Raiders were stunned by the Warriors on Saturday in a game overshadowed by a controversy over the forward passes that transformed the result
Choosing their winners for Freddy & Joey’s Tips from Wide World of Sports, Johns said the Titans are “flying” on the back of the strong form of their two star rookies, David Fifita and Tino Fa’asuamaleaui
“Big Tino and David Fifita absolutely killed them,” Johns said in reference to their stellar performances in last week’s 44-8 win over the struggling Cowboys
The Titans sit fourth in the standings heading into the fourth round after two big wins over their two rivals Queensland, putting them above the sixth Raiders, who are also 2-1
Still, Fittler was careful with his prediction that the Titans would continue their winning streak, remembering the shortcomings that were revealed to the side by the Warriors in the first round.
“It’s hard to get a read,” Fittler said “They killed Brisbane and killed the Cowboys, who didn’t start the season well And the Warriors beat them in Game 1, so it’s hard to know at what level they really are
“Sometimes I watch them and think it’s one of the top four teams, against the Raiders this week who have returning players”
