A wonderful afternoon of enthusiasm, smiles and fierce competition saw the Titans' Intellectual Disabilities Rugby League (IDRL) and Physical Disabilities Rugby League (PDRL) teams put on a show for the Cbus Super Stadium crowd last weekend.
Leagueabilty Match at Cbus Super Stadium - RD 8 2021
Playing as a curtain raiser to the Titans vs South Sydney Rabbitohs game, the showcase event had the crowd engaged throughout both games.
Such has the popularity been for the program, it was two sides of all-Titans players in both games.
It even meant club legend Preston Campbell couldn't get a jersey this time around, after he played in the trial match in Lismore earlier in the year.
In game splayed with two 10 minute halves the IDRL game saw Liam Hourigan score a massive 3 tries for the afternoon with Cody Redding and Brodie McGlashon following close behind with two tries each.
Matthew Guild though was the one to take away the well deserve CONDEV Man of the Match scoring the last try of the game and making a try saving tackle ultimately taking his team ‘sky blue’ to victory.
Taking the field after the IDRL teams was the PDRL match that kicked off at 4:20pm in the afternoon.
Brodie McGlashon was the first to cross the line for his team.
A try saving tackle from the white team was a highlight as they entered the half 20-4 down to the Navy side.
In the second stanza, Cameron Hunter and Michael Baker ran full lengths of the field helping their team score another 16 points.
#12 Cooper Wallace ran the length of the field just before full time but was unfortunately cut down just beforein scoring.
Navy took the win for the afternoon at 24-20, with Hudson Wicks from the Sky Blue took our the CONDEV Man of the Match with his elusive running and tough defense.
A great effort by all for a wonderful start to the weekend.
