Game day guide: Magic Round v Titans

The biggest weekends on the rugby league calendar has arrived as the Dragons look to bounce back against a desperate Gold Coast Titans outfit. This is your Round 10 game day guide.

Magic Round 

Pick a card, any card. All 16 teams will run out onto the field at Suncorp Stadium in this weekend's Magic Round showpiece.

The Magic Round proceedings kick off on Friday for the three-day rugby league bonanza in what is always a highlight on the rugby league calendar.

Tickets for Saturday are sold out meaning the Red V will do battle with the Titans in front of a packed house.

The last time the Dragons played the Titans at Suncorp (Round 6, 2020) the Red V galloped home with a comfortable 20-8 victory. Centre Zac Lomax was a main benefactor scoring 12 points (one try, four goals) on the day.

Sticking solid

Last weekend's 42-6 loss to the ladder-leading Melbourne Storm hasn't scared off Dragons coach Anthony Griffin who has stuck solid with the same 17 albeit with a few jersey change formalities.

Jack de Belin has been named in the front row with Tariq Sims shifting to lock for the Titans.

Jayden Sullivan remains in the team after replacing George Burgess in the squad last weekend.

Moose 250 

After a 13-year-long career, Josh McGuire will finally notch up his 250th first grade appearance on Saturday.

The man they affectionally call 'Moose' made his debut back in 2009 with the Brisbane Broncos where he remained until 2018. A stint with the North Queensland Cowboys followed before his arrival at the Red V in 2021.

Appearances at Test level and in the State of Origin arena have been highlights of the 32-year-old's career, although playing his 250th NRL cap will be one he'll want to remember with a win.

Titans ring in the changes

The Titans have gone all out with their team changes as they stare down the barrel of a potential sixth-straight loss.

Jayden Campbell (ribs), Phil Sami (knee), Jamayne Isaako, Esan Marsters and Jarrod Wallace have all been named. They come at the expense of Will Smith, Pat Herbert, Greg Marzhew, Kevin Proctor and Corey Thompson.

AJ Brimson shifts to five-eighth as a result of the wholesale changes, while potential for more rotations remains a possibility with Jaimin Jolliffe (calf) named in the reserves.
