Dyldam Parramatta Eels Assistant Coach Steve Murphy says the Eels need to be prepared for a dangerous Titans side, as he previews tonight’s Round 20 clash thanks to Unibet.
The Blue and Gold will be looking to snap a four-game losing streak at CBUS Super Stadium, and Murphy says shutting down the Gold Coast’s tendency to offload will be key as the Eels chase the win.
“[The Titans manage] a lot of offloads,” Murphy said.
“They use a lot of second phase football, with Big Dave Taylor out on an edge causing all sorts of havoc.”
“[Brad] Takairangi can offload the ball - they call all offload the ball - and Greg Bird will be keen to make a statement this week.”
“We’ll have to go up the Coast and be our entertaining best.”
