The Dolphins will host the Gold Coast Titans in game five, Round 8 National Rugby League Telstra Premiership in 2023; It doesn’t get more competitive in round eight as these two fight it out for another two points; The Dolphins are sitting in eighth on the ladder, this local derby should be a thriller, both teams sitting on eight points, whoever wins will not only have bragging rights but will climb the ladder over the over, a crucial two points and without any history to go off between these two it could go either way though the Dolphins will welcome the return of a few enforcers.
The Dolphins have been better offensively this season and it shows on the ladder, not much separates these two in defence so the only thing left to consider is the game plan, we are taking the mastermind of coaching Wayne Bennett to win this derby.
Edrick Lee, Felise Kaufusi and Jarrod Wallace are in for the Dolphins, and AJ Brimson, Klese Haas and Thomas Mikaele slot in for the Gold Coast Titans.

The Dolphins have averaged twenty-two points a match, and the Gold Coast Titans have averaged twenty-three.
Since Round One, the Dolphins are currently leaking twenty-four points a match in 2023, while the Gold Coast Titans have been leaking twenty-seven points a match.
