What a crazy half of Rugby League. The Titans have missed 18 tackles to the Tigers 5, yet the opposite is true in Errors with Tigers making 6 to Titans 3. Some commentators would call it a mistake-a-thon. The half time score is 12 - 6 to Titans, despite their being a man down for most of the last part of the half. Its certainly hard to get a handle on where this game will go. I said before the game that the Tigers halves would prove the difference on a hot tiring night and they along with Robbie Farah, need to do more in this next 40 minutes. If they do, they should take the crowd out of the match and finish over the top of the under-strength Titans.

Hello and Welcome to CBUS stadium for this Round 1 clash. It’s 29 and still hot and humid on ‘the Coast’.
Tonight’s match sees an understrength Titans up against a Tigers outfit that many tipsters have already decided are unlikely to make the 8. Although the forward clash usually decides these early season matches, the Tiger’s halves are the x-factor for tonight’s match. They have skill and speed to burn coupled with the confidence of youth. On the other side, the Titans sacked their first choice Number 7 and his replacement Daniel Mortimer, while experienced, is surely only a stopgap half. As both sets of forwards tire, tries should come thick and fast. Late change in Tigers backline with Karl Lovett in 18 coming off the extended bench and moving into centres, to replace Chris Lawrence. Dean Halatau is replaced by Martin Taupau in Tigers scrum. Ex - warrior Agnatius Passi joins the Titans bench. ENJOY.
