Titans re-gain confidence to down Raiders

WHAT a difference a week can make…

The Titans have put last Sunday’s embarrassing loss to the Tigers behind them to claim a 24-12 away win over the Raiders.

NRL.com.au reports, the Gold Coast scored 18 unanswered second half points to turn around a 12-6 halftime deficit and record a second win in three games and stay inside the top eight.


Halfback Albert Kelly again stared for the Titans with two opportunistic tries in the last five minutes to seal the win in Canberra.

“I think the only way was up from last week,” said Titans co-captain Nate Myles, who tallied over 50 tackles.

Titans coach John Cartwright also felt his team had set a benchmark for the remainder of the season.

“We spent plenty of time resting and recovering and getting over what we had to go through last week,” Cartwright said.

“They turned up mentally right today and were in the right frame of mind,” he added.

Raiders coach Ricky Stuart said his team lost its way in attack and needed to be more patient and constructive.

“We knew they were going to be desperate and we prepared for that all week,” Stuart said.

“That was a game that could have went either way, but they hung in there longer.”

The Titans will host the Cowboys at CBus Super Stadium for Round 4 next Monday night.
