Two tries to centre Jamal Idris and winger Kevin Gordon has helped the iSelect Gold Coast Titans to a club record 42-4 win over the Parramatta Eels in Mudgee today.
Played in front of a crowd of over 9000 fans at Glen Willow Stadium Mudgee, the Titans produced a 30-point second half to run away with their biggest ever winning margin.
The Titans piled on seven tries in total, with five-eighth Aidan Sezer landing seven goals from as many attempts to hep the Titans to their biggest winning margin since scoring a 36-0 win over Canberra in Round 2.
Jamal and Gordon both bagged doubles and were heavily involved throughout the match, while halfback Albert Kelly, centre Brad Takairangi and winger Anthony Don also crossed for tries.
The Titans led 12-4 at halftime after Don and Gordon crossed for first half tries.
From there, it was all the Titans as the Gold Coasters laid on five second half tries to run away with the match.
The Titans led 6-0 after nine minutes after Don scored off the back of a great offload from Idris.
The Eels hit back through winger Ken Sio to reduce the margin to 6-4 before Gordon scored just before halftime to give the Titans a 12-4 lead at the break.
The Titans started the second half strongly with Idris and Takairangi both crossing for tries shortly after halftime to give the Gold Coasters a handy 24-4 with 25 minutes remaining.
Kelly then put the icing on the cake with a brilliant runaway try, displaying some great speed to beat Eels fullback Jarryd Hayne and score to put the result beyond doubt at 30-4.
Gordon and Idris then crossed for another two tries to cap their double and secure the Titans a club record victory.
