Head to head: Back tackle-breaking work, big men on the run

Knights 11, Titans 9.

Of the 20 occasions the sides have met, the Newcastle Knights have bagged a few more victories.

Let’s hope the red and blue can add one more to that tally on the Gold Coast this weekend.

Injury update: Guerra surgery and return date

Key matchups will be one of the deciding factors on who’ll be awarded the points for Round 6.

Here’s some to watch out for.

Jesse Ramien v Tyrone Peachy

Fast, cunning and hard to handle!

These two have played every minute of the season, Ramien eight more with a golden point game, the stats very similar coming from the centres.

At 488, Ramien has notched up a few more run metres than Peachy, who’s on 469.

While Ramien has added a try to his name already, Peachy has played his part helping team mates find the line with two try assists.

The impressive numbers though are tackle breaks! Both men are proving tricky customers for their opposing teams.

Ramien just wins that battle with 28, the most for the Knights and six more than his opposing centre.

Set to be something exciting when either gets the ball in hand.

Lachlan Fitzgibbon v Bryce Cartwright

It will be a battle to see who will take control of the middle this weekend.

Fitzgibbon may have the upper hand; he has come off a stellar 2018 with 21 games and nine tries in tow.

Meanwhile Cartwright lacked some quality game time with just 14 NRL matches last year.

Sights & Sounds v Manly

Tackle breaks the same at seven…. tackles similar 134 and 135.

But the big standout is Fitzgibbon on the all run metres, with 525 metres recorded for the Knights forward, Cartwright behind at 358.

Watch out, they both like to score a try or two; Cartwright leading the way this season with a try already to his name.

James Gavet v Ryan James

The Titans front rower has got Gavet covered stat wise, but that could be because he’s played double the minutes so far this season.

James has a notable 501 all run metres to Gavet’s 258.

The no. 10 is clearly pulling his weight with 181 tackles made, the most for the Titans, at 92 per cent.

Gavet is on 103 at 94 per cent.

While tackle breaks seem to be James’ forte with 11 on the tally, Gavet has his opponent beat with a try assist on the board.
