Dave Taylor leads Titans to victory

Dave Taylor has given NRL fans one final glimpse at the talent everyone knew he had.

The Gold Coast giant, in the 169th and second last game of his NRL career, delivered a man-of-the-match display as the Titans snatched a 28-26 upset win on Sunday over the Dragons.

Taylor scored two tries, including the match-winner, had nine tackle busts, made a game-high 27 tackles and managed two offloads in a display of his freakish talents.


The ex-Queensland and Australian representative will head to France at season’s end to join Super League team Catalans.

Skipper Nate Myles was denied the chance to play his final home game before he leaves to join Manly.

With Beau Falloon (knee), Eddy Pettybourne (ankle), Lachlan Burr (hip) and Josh Hoffman (groin) all struggling, the Titans overcame a 20-12 halftime deficit to run down a Dragons team which could have confirmed their top-eight spot with victory.
