Largest post-COVID crowd on hand for Local Derby win

Titans supporters were in full voice at Cbus Super Stadium to watch their team win the local derby against Brisbane, with a record crowd cheering tan 18 points to 6 victory.

9279 people watched the game, the largest NRL crowd at any venue since the resumption after the COVID break.

The sellout (in line with COVID-safe capacity) crowd were entertained, with the Gold Coast side becoming the first since 1988 to beat a Broncos team twice in a season.

Ash Taylor was named man of the match, with the five-eighth proving a constant threat with ball in hand.

He says the players are proud of the result and pleased to get another win in front of Titans Members and fans.

“It’s (winning both games against Brisbane) never happened in our (Titans) history since 2007,” Taylor said.

“It was a great derby game and we always get up for it and the boys really enjoyed it.”

Titans Coach Justin Holbrook said the derby is always one of the highlights of the season and after back-to-back wins away, he was glad his team could bring that form back to the Gold Coast.

“I’m really happy to get a good win at home,” Holbrook said.

“The last two weeks away and to get a win at home in front of our home fans ... I’m just really happy to win the derby game.

“To be part of the first Titans side to win twice in a season over the Broncs is fantastic.”

The Titans return to Cbus Super Stadium for the final time in season 2020 for a blockbuster clash against the Newcastle Knights.

With a mouth-watering matchup between the fullbacks (AJ Brimson and Kalyn Ponga) and Origin forwards locking horns (Wallace and Arrow against Klemmer and Saifiti), this should be another entertaining game to watch.

It’ll also be our chance to thank you, our Members and fans, for your support in 2020.
