Big names, big hits and a big week of rehab ahead were the major takeaways from another sensational Deadly Choices Invitational clash at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday that saw the Titans Legends and Broncos Greats fight out a thrilling 18-all draw.
Some of the biggest names to have played for Gold Coast and Brisbane took to the field and wound back the clock in support of Deadly Choices, and the fans were treated to another entertaining game with flashes of the golden days from the “golden oldies”.
Current Titans Football Manager Anthony Laffranchi and Titans Academy Coordinator Matt Srama were among the former Gold Coast players to pull on the jersey, doing well to juggle playing the game on top of their regular match-day duties.
While there was a galaxy of stars from both clubs on show, perhaps the one to shine the brightest was former Gold Coast Seagulls second-rower Peter Gill (67 games for Gold Coast 1992-1995), who showed he had lost none of his class despite being the oldest player on the field at 54 years of age.
Other big names like Preston Campbell, Scott Prince, Brad Meyers and Chris Walker all still looked like they could cut it in the NRL if given the chance.
The Gold Coast Titans sincerely thank all players from both clubs for being involved in the annual event, and their support of the work being done by Deadly Choices.
We do however also offer our sincere sympathy for how the players would have felt waking up on Sunday morning.
