Cronulla travel to Queensland for a second consecutive week to take on a Titans side on Sunday who finally tasted some success last week after five consecutive losses.
The Sharks themselves hit another Suncorp Stadium road block with a lacklustre performance against the Raiders to slump to second loss at the venue.
Cronulla's attack was off compared to previous weeks with Nicho Hynes' move to fullback and the suspensions of Will Kennedy and Jesse Ramien clearly rattling the side's cohesion with the ball.
Gold Coast enjoyed their first win in more than a month to set up an intriguing match to end round 11 with the Titans continuing a six-week block where they won't leave Queensland until June 18.
With three home games in the next four matches, the Titans will be looking to climb up the ladder and get into the top eight.

Jayden Campbell v Lachlan Miller: A young gun who returned from injury with a bang last week up against a man on debut looking to make his mark in the NRL. Campbell produced a whopping 261 metres in last week's golden point win over the Dragons and made the Titans look dangerous on both sides of the field in an area that has been sorely missed in his absence. Cronulla's call to move Nicho Hynes back to the halves gives Miller an opportunity to show his worth. His ability to link with the halves and backline will be key to the side's attack, along with his kick return yardage.
The Sharks pound-for-pound have strength across the park with their tackle breaks numbers (354) dominating the competition. The Titans (318) aren't far behind on the individual front. Cronulla also lead in decoy runs with 517 with the Titans (412) ranked sixth.
