1st minute: And we're underway! Knights immediately on the attack but the Titans' defence is strong first up. 

2nd minute: TIGHE TRY! (That's got a decent ring to it). Tighe gets a perfect bounce, eluding a Titans defender and touching down for a bonus try. Kevin Gordon has the kicking duties, and nails from in front. Titans up 7-0. 

4th minute: Mullen kicks for Mamo, but he's called offside and stands back. Titans now on the charge. 

Someone needs to gif that Luke Bailey step. One for the ages. Literally.

6th minute: SMITH TRY! After beautiful lead-up work by Uate and Leilua, Knights give the ball some air and Leilua sends Jeremy Smith steaming through with an inside pass for a bonus try. Knights convert from in front and it's now 7-all. 

7th minute: Knights' hooker Adam Clydsdale reaches for a try but ref rules knock on. That was a close call. 

9th minute: LEILUA TRY! Too strong there from Uate and Leilua. Uate skips out of dummy half, draws defenders and hits Leilua who still has a bit of work to do but uses his strength to carry a couple of Titans over the line. Mullen misses and the Knights go into halftime with a 11-7 lead. 

Intriguing game thus far with both teams looking likely each time they have the ball. Uate and Leilua causing havoc for the Titans' left edge. 

11th minute: Poor error there by Mamo, kicking the ball out on the field and gifting the Titans field position. 

11th minute: LEILUA TRY! That's two now for Leilua. Gagai uses his speed to get on the outside of his men on the right edge, and draws in winger to send Leilua over. 

12th minute: Score now 17-7. Conversion was successful. 

13th minute: Titans need points, but Minichiello caught on the last. Five minutes to go. 

14th minute: Uate with a miracle save to keep the ball from going out. 

15th minute: LEILUA TRY! And that's the hat trick for the Knights centre, who's just too strong on the right edge. 

16th minute: Mullen misses from the sideline, and the score remains at 21-7. 

There is concern for Knights halfback Tyrone Roberts, who copped a shot after hitting Leilua for the try. 

16th minute: TIGHE TRY! Tighe gets his second, scoring a bonus try. Titans convert and it's now 21-14 with 90 seconds to go. 

18th minute: MAMO TRY! The kid gets the try but this one was all Gagai, who draws two and paves a way for Mamo to score to the right. Mullen misses. But it's all but over, Knights leading 25-14. 

18th minute: Titans almost go length of the field from the kick off but Uate sends Faifai Loa into touch with 15 metres to go. And that's another one done, Knights winning 25-14.
