Titans to Rise For Alex

The Gold Coast Titans have a tough task ahead of them today, taking on the Knights in Newcastle in the ‘Rise for Alex’ round.

A full house is expected at Hunter Stadium, as the Newcastle community turns-out to support wheelchair-bound Knights player Alex McKinnon.

It’s a crucial match for the Titans whose finals hopes are diminishing, made worse by the loss of Greg Bird who is serving a two-match suspension.


Overnight the Roosters led from start-to-finish, with a convincing 32-12 win over fellow top-four side Penrith. The Broncos came from 12-nil down for a thrilling 28-22 victory over the in-form Warriors, while Melbourne overcame Canberra 28-14.
