That's full time here folks. Brisbane have run out big winners by the tune of 34-0. They have dominated Gold Coast from start to finish here in every facet of the word. Not only were the Broncos superb defensively but they were very slick with their attack scoring some very flashy tries. They have now scored 76 points in their last two games. Trouble brewing for fellow NRL teams.
The Titans weren't terrible today but have just run into the Broncos at the worst possible time. They tried vety hard but struggled in the 2nd half when Kane Elgey was taken off. They'll learn from this and be better for it.
That's all from me ladies and gents! This is Jack Clifton signing off!

Scored by Jarrod Wallace. Kick to come.

Try time again and that could be game over! Milford takes on the line and holds the ball, holds it some more and then pops it to Jarrod Wallace who steam rolls through the defensive line and under the posts. However it appears it was a forward pass. Tough luck for the Gold Coast

Brisbane Broncos 22-0

Comical by the Titans here, Sezer's ball out the back nears the touchline, picked up by Flash Gordon who sends a pass back to McDonald who knocks the ball on and then Gillett is held back whilst trying to collect the ball. Penalty Brisbane!

We're back for the 2nd Half ladies and Gents! Can The Gold Coast turn around the game and keep their season alive or will the Broncos continue their charge on their quest to the Minor Premiership?

Brisbane Broncos 18-0

Well the Broncos have flexed their muscles in this first half after a tense first 15 minutes. 18-0 is the score at the break and it could have been more if not for some mistakes from Brisbane. The Titans are out of sorts and need to complete their sets and get back to playing mistake free footy. If they can get James Roberts in space then he will cause Brisbane some real issues.

Brisbane Broncos 18-0

SUCCESSFUL PENALTY GOAL BRISBANE BRONCOS

Fantastic play by the Titans! Falloon takes it to the line and sends Elgey through a hole, he finds Hoffmann who takes on Boyd but is dragged down only 1m out! Elgey is caught with the ball on the last and it all breaks down, disappointing end for the Titans.

Brisbane's form has been envious for every other club in the NRL. Wayne Bennett has his side incredibly well drilled and playing for each other which is a huge thing in the NRL. They will be aiming for their 8th straight win tonight. Their halves have been the nucleus for their success this year with consistent strong performances that have aided the Broncos classy outside backs. Their squad depth has also been very impressive as they have covered the absence of Origin stars more than once this season . Look for their bench to again have an impact as this match wears on.

0 all

Just to clarify those changes for the Titans. Myles back to the bench and is replaced by journeyman Eddy Pettybourne at Prop and Burr has dropped back to the bench as well and Agnatius Paasi comes into the starting side at second row.
The Titans will need their defence to be top notch tonight to win this game. 4 losses on the trot has been tough on the Tweed Heads based club. However if Gold Coast can play somewhere near the level they showed in their 28-14 win against Canterbury back in Round 14, they could leave Brisbane with a very valuable 2 competition points.

Hello and welcome to Brisbane for tonight's clash between the table topping Brisbane Broncos and their cross town (I use that term loosely) rivals the Gold Coast Titans. It's a lovely night here in Brisbane and the playing conditions are close to perfect. Brisbane will be keen to maintain their red hot form of late which has seen them hold a 4 point advantage at the top of the ladder after 19 rounds. No changes for the home side, they line up 1-17 and will be happy to welcome back bench utility Kodi Nikorima.
The Titans season is well and truly on the line tonight. They sit at 6-11 after 19 rounds and a loss tonight would knock them out of contention (although not mathematically). They have responded to their last 4 defeats (in which they conceding a whopping 104 points) by dropping captain and Prop Nate Myles to the bench along with Second Rower Lachlan Burr. Gold Coast will have to be at their very best tonight to even stay in touch with Brisbane, however anything is possible in the NRL. Hoping for this one to be a cracking game.
