Nothing doing there. Brimson tries to toe through for himself, it deflects and is dropped on by a Warrior. What happened there. FULLTIME.
Yep. The Warriors veteran is sin-binned.
Brimson juggles it and goes close. Time off though. Tyrone Roberts was hammered late and Adam Blair might finish his 300th game in acrimonious style.
PENALTY TITANS! Shannon Boyd strips it one-on-one then the Warriors refuse to get off the man. PENALTY. A whole set for the Titans to snatch this.
Bit of a nothing set from the Titans but RTS is pinned on his line.
Three minutes to go! Four points! Here we go!

Luke has looked ropey from close, let's see how he goes from the touchline. Taking his time, Luke rolls in.. crept it inside the post.
GREEN LIGHTS.. TRY! Only one look needed! The quick hands opened up the space, Maumalo provided a class finish.
BUNKER TIME! Maumalo might have sealed the game. Called TRY. Checking putdown.
All the best stuff has come through RTS for the Warriors tonight. Nikorima switched the play, RTS kicked through and it is defused by the Titans.
RED LIGHTS.. NO TRY! Bunker officials stay with the on-field call. Luke was short. Set continues.
BUNKER TIME! Luke dives over. Called NO TRY.
It has gotten frantic here. Warriors keeping it alive so the rushing Titans defense touches it. Six more. Issac Luke might have stolen the game.
Warriors look promising again, Arthars punches it free trying to intercept. Warriors scrum.
Luke pilots it through for a four-point lead.
From nowhere, the Warriors hit the lead. Green just stepped past a charging marker, looked for support, took it long enough before he linked with RTS to stroll in.
Roberts duly kicks them ahead.
PENALTY TITANS! Stockwell has it fly out. Warriors try to play on, but nope! strip. Titans can shoot for the lead here.
Warriors try to find something on the right, Herbert got into space before shunting it inside. Initially called knock back, the touch judge called it knock on.
RED LIGHTS.. NO TRY! It was a tough call. The kick went into the pack, it looked to have hit Papalii then a Titan before Ryley Jacks dived over. No evidence to overturn. Warriors scrum.
BUNKER TIME! Jacks might have stolen one from a wonky kick. Checking a knock on though. Gone up as NO TRY!
Brilliant counter attacking set from the Warriors after Nikorima snaffles a lovely take. It ended right on the Titans line as Don takes a tough catch.
Another error from Tevaga trying to get his side going. Titans right on the attack.

Warriors make the first raid down the left. Hiku made inroads but his flick inside was coughed up by Papalii.
KICK-OFF! Here we go again. Warriors with first use.
Both teams are back for the second half. Evenly poised who will take home the cookies? we'll see in about 40 minutes. Titans are down two men with both Jai Arrow and Tyrone Peachey both out for the contest.
HALFTIME! Warriors sprung out to the lead before the Titans have dazzled to make it 12-all.
RED LIGHTS.. NO TRY! Once we got a few replays, it is judged that Jacks knocked it on.. in the field of play. Warriors scrum.
BUNKER TIME! We have a whole mess to sort out here. The ball came off the post then someone touched it. Firstly checking interference and onside.
Jarrod Wallace goes down under some heavy work. The prop is holding his neck, receiving attention. After he is back to his feet. Play on.
New kicker alert! Issac Luke takes the duties, slams it through.
PENALTY WARRIORS! Three strong charges from the Warriors to start the set. RTS then Herbert got them into the red zone. Lachlan Burr on fourth, saw open pasture skipped into the open but flicked it inside to a Titan. The play is pulled back for a whistle. Warriors opt for two.
Titans try to probe down the left again, Rein throws it a touch early and Kelly spills.
Slicing run from Arrow, building from his offload in the last set is stopped with some heavy contact. Time off while he gets some attention. The lock has to be assisted from the field, and we'll be on tackle four.
PENALTY WARRIORS! Herbert is tipped up beyond the horizontal.
Closer to the sideline for Roberts. The half takes his time, strolls in and curls it over.
Started by Kelly, finished by the centre! A late offload from Jai Arrow gave them space on the left to enter Warriors territory. Some manic offloading on the final tackle, flicked it back inside then it was simply counting numbers for Kelly to stride over.
Roberts from the left side, raises the flags.
The gap opened up like Sydney heads, a simple run-around saw Jacks soar for the line.
PENALTY TITANS! Make it two for a strip. Some deliberations but they tap and go.
PENALTY TITANS! Too much work in the ruck. Ah Mau was caught in there. Chance for the fans to get behind the home side.
First signs of life for the Titans! Kelly poked through the line, getting them some momentum. The home side swung it right before trying to turn it on left but the kick dribbled out.
Warriors getting over the advantage line easily, finished their set on the 40 then Green lofted a kick that trapped AJ Brimson. Titans have spent much of the game just working it out from their own end.
A tougher second kick for Nikorima. The half studies the kick and thuds it off the post.
GREEN LIGHTS.. TRY! Maumalo finished off a scrum move where Roger Tuivasa-Sheck got outside his man, flung it to Maumalo to touchdown.
BUNKER TIME! Only checking putdown after a wonderful RTS sweep.
Following the energetic start, the game has settled into a rhythm. Titans sprwad it right trying to munch up some metres but it is brought back for a forward pass from Don to Peachy.
Gifted a set, the Titans just powered through the middle then a last-tackle kick is taken. Warriors rucking it out.

Here come the Warriors onto a swelled Robina, led by Adam Blair, playing his 300th game! Warriors wearing a resplident 1995-esque kit while the riff of 'Welcome to the Jungle' signals the entrance of the home side - Gold Coast. Striding out confidently in their home jersey, the Titans are ready for battle.
Happy Friday! We kick off the weekend with a tasty pub-time fixture! Gold Coast host the visiting NZ Warriors as they look to secure back-to-back victories after their huge derby win whilst the Warriors seek to rebound after they were thumped by the Storm. Let's get onto the footy!
