The Gold Coast created plenty of first half chances, but it was poor ball handling that cost the Titans against the Melbourne Storm on the Sunshine Coast.

The Storm won the match 42 points to 6.

Ash Taylor and Jamal Fogarty tested the Storm defence and Moeaki Fotuaika again layed a strong platform up forward but it was Melbourne who were able to capitalise on Titans errors.

New Titans recruit Tino Faasuamaleaui showed why he will be a great addition to the Gold Coast side in 2021, with another strong performance for Melbourne.

Munster got the scoring started in the 20th minute when he latched onto a superb pass from Smith but the Titans managed hit back seven minutes later when Brian Kelly scored off an Ash Taylor grubber.

A dropped ball by Jamal Fogarty then handed the Storm field possession and they capitalised through winger Josh Addo-Carr, who flew through the air to score in the left corner.

In the 36th minute, the Storm extended their lead to 18-6 when prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona powered over from close range.

Just three minutes into the second half Asofa-Solomona had his first career double as he ran over the top of Taylor to stretch the lead to 18.

A penalty goal to Cameron Smith in the 51st minute made the margin 20 and the game was effectively over as a contest.

With the Titans continuing to turn over possession meekly, Brenko Lee was the next to get in on the tryscoring action courtesy of sensational lead-up work by Cameron Smith and Jahrome Hughes.

When Brandon Smith dived over from dummy half and Addo-Carr streaked away for his double the humiliation was complete for the Titans who simply had no answers to the class of the Storm.
