New Zealand Warriors vs Gold Coast Titans NRL: Start time and how to watch free

Posted: 13 March 2021 10:47 am

The road Warriors are at it again, "hosting" the Titans on the Central Coast in this NRL season opener.

SUMMARY: Warriors vs Titans is exclusive to Fox League. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

The Titans will be brimming with confidence as they chase a club-record sixth straight victory following their winning streak to end the 2020 season. They have a tactically clever and well-respected coach in Justin Holbrook. Origin rep forwards David Fifita and Tino Fa'asuamaleaui headline the Titans recruits. Undoubtedly, the future looks bright for the Gold Coast.

The Warriors have also been active in the player market, signing Addin Fonua-Blake, Euan Aitken, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Bayley Sironen and Kane Evans. They have a new coach in Nathan Brown following the departure of interim Todd Payten to North Queensland.

Like last year, the dreaded coronavirus has forced the Warriors across the ditch where they will again play their home matches at the picturesque Central Coast Stadium in Gosford.

Warriors vs Titans kick-off time

This match kicks off at 3pm AEDT on Saturday 13 March at Central Coast Stadium in Gosford. You can check out the full 2021 NRL season draw here.

How to watch New Zealand Warriors vs Gold Coast Titans

Once more in 2021, all three matches on Super Saturday – Warriors vs Titans at 3pm AEDT, Roosters vs Sea Eagles (5:30pm AEDT) and Panthers vs Cowboys (7:35pm AEDT) – are exclusive to Fox League. There is no free-to-air coverage, which is the case for most Warriors and Titans fixtures in 2021.

That means you need access to Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now or Kayo Sports. That is also the case for another Sunday's local derby between Cronulla and the Dragons at 6:15pm AEDT. We also have a comparison of Kayo vs Foxtel to help you make a decision.

New Zealand Warriors vs Gold Coast Titans: Head-to-Head

Who will win New Zealand Warriors vs Gold Coast Titans?

There are high expectations for the Titans this year based on their hot streak to finish the season in 2020. They also now boast one of the best forward packs in the competition. We're tipping them to make the top eight but it will take time for the new recruits to adjust to life under Holbrook.

The Warriors will be desperate to send captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck out on a high before he defects to rugby union. In a tight match, we're tipping the Warriors to win by four points.
