11:04: 4th minute:  TRY TITANS! Kevin Gordon over in the left corner, and what about that haircut?  

11:05: 4th minute:  Greg Bird's attempt from the left sideline is a shocker! Titans lead 4-0.  

11:06: 6th minute:  Titans regain possession from kick off, that was an innovative play!  

11:06: 6th minute:  Paul Carter try from dummy half! Instant impact.

11:10: Titans totally dominant, leading 12-0 at the break.  

11:10: Titans showing innovation and pace, Tigers struggling to make in-roads due to poor handling. Long way back for them.

11:15:11th minute:  Tedesco bonus try! 70m try from deep in his own half. What speed! Richards converts but Tigers still down 12-7.

11:17: 14th minute:  How clever was that kick-off? Titans get the ball back after finding touch.  

11:18: 14th minute:  We take that back. Dave Taylor didn't come off, but now he's injured in a tackle. He's still on the park, but big concerns for the big man.  

11:18: 15th minute:  Faifai Loa over in the left corner after a Will Zillman flick pass. How good was that?

11:19: 15th minute:  Titans conversion unsuccessful, but the Titans are cruising at 22-7.  

11:21: 18th minute:  Titans on the attack to finish off the game. Both teams are now tiring.  

11:21: 18th minute:  Maurice Blair turns the ball over centimetres from the line. That will be all she wrote.

11:22: Titans take this one quite easily. Gold Coast 22, Tigers 7.
