Round 8 Opposition Thoughts
Each week in 2016 bulldogs.com.au will take a look at the opposition for the week and what the players think about coming up against the men in blue and white.
The Bulldogs call ANZ Stadium home yet have not won a home game this season. On the other hand, the Titans have only been defeated once at ANZ Stadium since 2008, recording four wins against the Bulldogs and the Rabbitohs.
During the week, Titans players and Coach Neil Henry spoke about the battle at ANZ Stadium.
“There a big mobile team. Their forward pack is going to be hard to stop and it’s going to be a tough match. We’ve got to go down there this weekend and put in a good performance and hopefully get the win.” – Titans Winger Anthony Don
“We need our forwards to step up and lay the platform. When they go forward it leaves more space for us outside backs to play some football, because if we don’t do this, it’s going to be a very hard job down there.” – Titans Winger David Mead
“There a formidable side, a big forward pack, mobile and strong out wide. There a tough competitive side and it will be a real test for us. We’ll need to start this game like we ended the last game and that’s rolling through our sets and being a bit more direct than we have been.” – Titans Coach Neil Henry.
Get ready for an afternoon of fireworks when the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs host the Gold Coast Titans at ANZ Stadium.
The Bulldogs and Titans have played out some cracking encounters in recent years and this one has all the makings of another classic game.
