How to watch Gold Coast Titans vs South Sydney Rabbitohs NRL live and match preview
How will the Rabbitohs cope without their suspended star Latrell Mitchell when they take on the Titans on Friday night?
Titans vs Rabbitohs will be intriguing to see how South Sydney cope without their strike weapon Latrell Mitchell. Mitchell copped a four-week suspension after he failed to have his dangerous contact charge downgraded.
It will certainly be much tougher for the Titans without Origin forward Tino Fa'asuamaleaui, who has been suspended for a shoulder charge. It means Moeaki Fotuaika shifts into the starting side.
When is Titans vs South Sydney
The Titans host the Rabbitohs at Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast from 6pm AEST on Friday 23 April. Check out the NRL draw here.

Titans vs Rabbitohs match preview
Let's take a look at the numbers for Mitchell, who the Bunnies will sorely miss. He is third best in the NRL for tackle breaks (37) behind Penrith winger Brian To'o (51) and Titans backrower David Fifita (41).
The Indigenous role model has 6 try assists this year and he tops the NRL list for line break assists with 10 alongside Panthers half Jarome Luai. Mitchell sits third on the stats for kick return metres with 411 behind Jamayne Isaako (436) and Eels skipper Clint Gutherson (495).
The Titans will be glad they won't have to face Mitchell but they know it will still be a challenging night. Alex Johnston is a handy replacement at the back although he doesn't possess the same power and silky skills as his suspended teammate.
The Titans have beaten up their Queensland rivals Brisbane and North Queensland, as well as the Knights this year. But last week they were hammered 36-0 by a Tom Trbojevic-inspired Manly. Can they dust themselves off for a big match against the Rabbitohs?
We think the Rabbitohs were lucky to escape with victory against the Tigers last week and expect the Titans to hit back from their hiding to Manly. Titans by 4 points.
