Gold Coast Titans confident of making 2021 finals, after sensational season finish

It’s all looking up for the Gold Coast Titans, after a sensational end to their 2020 season last night.

They defeated the Newcastle Knights 36-6 in front of adoring fans at Cbus, to finish in ninth spot on the NRL ladder.

Ash Taylor took two tries and three conversions, while AJ Brimson also got two tries – one a thrilling 90 metre sprint.

Coach Justin Holbrook admits that if they’re able to start the season with him next year, they’re a finals chance for sure.

“I said since I got here I love AJ, he’s my favourite player.

“I seen glimpses of him in the pre season and we just had to get his back right, I just had a go at him for being selfish and not playing till half the year’s done.

“So if he plays earlier, we’re playing next week. It’s that simple, he’s just that good a player,” Holbrook said post match.

Mitch Rein, Brian Kelly and Captain Kevin Proctor all got tries as well, with the look on Proctor’s face pretty much summing up the entire game for the Titans.
