GOLD Coast Titans' biggest test of the season will come tonight when they host the Brisbane Broncos.

Very few pundits tipped the Titans to be on top of the table after five rounds, but they have not played well on many occasions against their nearest neighbour.

For those looking to tip the result of tonight's match the history of the clashes between the two clubs is instructive.

The Titans have won just four of their 15 clashes with the Broncos since entering the competition in 2007.

That includes just one win in the past nine meetings with Brisbane.

Titans halfback Albert Kelly and his Broncos counterpart Ben Hunt are the two form halves of the competition and much will depend on their performances behind forward packs that look to equal each other out.

The leadership of Titans co-captain Greg Bird has been a revelation for the club this season. Taking on the goal kicking duties in recent weeks just shows that he is prepared to go the extra mile for his side.

Elsewhere the Rabbitohs, on the back of Greg Inglis and Sam Burgess, should have too much firepower for the Rabbitohs.

Raiders fullback Anthony Milford is a match winner and he will prove pivotal in the clash with the Knights if his forwards fire.

The Roosters have had a tough draw so far but coach Trent Robinson will have them primed for an away clash against an in-form Eels.

The big question mark over the Cowboys will be whether they can win in Sydney against a confident Tigers outfit. North Queensland will be buoyed by their strong win over Newcastle and still look a premiership contender.

The Warrior shave been awful and it is doubtful whether a new coach can inspire them to victory over Des Hasler's Bulldogs.

Look for the Sea Eagles to bounce back against the Sharks from last week's embarrassing display while the Storm should continue their dominance of the Dragons.
