St George Illawarra jumped over the Titans and out of last place with their first win of the season last round.
It came as the Gold Coast were comfortably beaten by the Rabbitohs, unable to repeat their success over the Wests Tigers a week earlier.
The Dragons are aiming for five consecutive wins against the Titans to build on the momentum they gained in beating the Sharks.
St George Illawarra beat Gold Coast twice in as many meetings in 2019.

There's not much to compare Matt Dufty and Tyrone Peachey on face value given their vastly different roles. But they share at least one trait in common: the ability to bust a game open. It might take just one magic moment to decide the result, and you sense these two X-factor players could be the ones to provide it.
