Preview

Kieran Foran has once again been named to make his debut for the Warriors this Sunday and boy don’t they need him. For all of their talent on paper, the Warriors sit 1-3 and not far off the bottom of the ladder.

The Warriors rank third last in points scored this season and fourth last in points conceded, never a good combination and coach Stephen Kearney must be feeling the pressure in the box.

The Titans meanwhile are in a decent patch of form despite a loss last week against the Cowboys. They too have their defensive woes but have no troubles finding the opposition try line with the fourth most points in the competition, just four points off top spot.

Typically, the Warriors play better at home but Titans co-captain Ryan James managed to get off at the NRL judiciary and will line up on Sunday.

Will the Warriors rise in what hopefully will be Foran’s debut? We can smell an upset brewing.
