Titans end horror season on high

THE Gold Coast Titans have pulled off a miracle in their final clash of the season, beating the Bulldogs in a fight to the finish on Sunday.

All looked lost for the Gold Coast at half time with the scored locked at 18-0 to the Bulldogs.

But a flurry of stunning tries in the second half seemed to have the Bulldogs stunned as they surged to level the score just seconds from the end of the match.

The sides were forced to go to golden point to determine the winner.

A silly mistake from the Titans in the opening minuted of extra time meant the Bulldogs were in a perfect position to kick a field goal early and secure victory.

But, the miracles continued for the Titans, with Bulldogs and New South Wales Origin star Trent Hodkinson spraying his goal off to the right and missing the chance to grab the win.

It left the Gold Coast with a chance to make their mark, which they did just a few minutes later off the boot of Will Zillman, finishing the match with a 19-18 victory.

But it wasn’t all good news for the Titans with Dave Taylor and Tom Kingston placed on report.

It’ll also be a nervous wait for Canterbury’s Tony Williams who was placed on report for a shoulder charge on Aidan Sezer late in the match.

If found guilty it’s likely the massive Bulldogs player could miss the start of their finals race.
