GREEN LIGHTS.. TRY! Roberts kicked through, looking for a repeat, it took a deflection and the five-eighth dives over then is mobbed by his teammates.
BUNKER TIME! Tyrone Roberts chases his own kick. Checking grounding.
Mitch Rein goes for the time management kick. He blasts it over the sideline as the time slowly ticks away.

PENALTY TITANS! Double movement. It was clear. Some relief for the Titans.
RED LIGHTS.. NO TRY! It is knocked onto Peachey, so play on from there. Onto Watson, he is caught short then bounces across. He looks to have lifted the arm, so it is called back.

Cut and paste job here. Titans full of energy, confidence and execution make it three sets in a row. Roberts again toes through the line, Peachey was chasing through but SKD knocks it dead again.
Roberts continues his strong start, forces a repeat set with a low grubber. Knights really blowing hard here. They can't hold the ball and have to defend their line.
Knights show some promise. They try to shift it to the right, Ramien got outside his man, goes the audacious flick to Shaun Kenny-Dowall which is judged forward. Play continued on for kicks but it will be Titans ball, midfield.
Nope. Glasby is rushed up on, clipped and drops it. Titans ruck it out now.
PENALTY KNIGHTS! Ponga tries to charge through a gap, caught high by Peachey. Set start for the visitors.

PENALTY TITANS! Mitch, Mitch, Mitch bellows the referees as they blow the whistle on first from the scrum. Titans will post first points through a penalty goal.
Now there is a stoppage as Ryan James is down in some pain. That would be a massive blow, already losing Kevin Proctor in the warm-up. The forward is assisted from the field, hopefully he might be back.
We have our first repeat set. Ash Taylor stabs through low, Danny Levi did well to get down to the ball but fumbled it trying to scoop it up.
PENALTY TITANS! Second whistle of the afternoon. It sent the home side over halfway. Can they post first points now.
Some action! Ponga streams through the middle, tries to see if he had support, kicked for the wing but the Titans were quick enough to recover. It all came from a nice short ball from Mitch Pearce.
Dale Copley tries to show-and-go on his opposing centre, Jesse Ramien stands his ground, drives him over the sideline and it will be a Knights scrum on the 20.
SKD is targeted again. This one swirled, tumbled and the winger let it bounce, thankfully it bounced kindly and Dowall fell on the pill. The game hasn't got into a big rhythm yet.
PENALTY KNIGHTS! They have sent all three final-tackle kicks to Shaun Kenny-Dowall. The former Kiwi international has dealt with all three, the latest saw a penalty for a dangerous tackle from Mitch Rein.
