History was made at Oakes Oval tonight, with The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans securing the new clubs maiden victory, recording a 22-10 win over a scrappy Parramatta Eels side. A record crowd of 8612 braved the cool Lismore conditions, to witness months of hard work pay off for the NRL new boys, with the electrifying Titans backline crossing for three converted tries in the final nine minutes to secure an entertaining victory. In what was a scrappy game, both teams preferred to work on combinations for the arduous season ahead, with Titans halves Scott Prince and Matt Hilder communicating well throughout the night. It was a frustrating night for Titans Union recruit Matt Rogers, dropping two difficult passes whilst in half gaps early in the match, and not returning for the second half. The Eels had the better of the early forward exchanges, with powerhouse prop Fuifui Moimoi barrelling Titans defenders with his every charge. But the determination and power of the Titans defence blunted much of the Eels early dominance. The youthful Eels backline clicked into gear in the 10th minute, with a simple overlap movement allowing Jarryd Hayne to cross in the corner unopposed. Luke Burt Like
