The Dragons really set the cat amongst the pidgeons with a 26-6 comprehensive victory over the Bulldogs.
The other game was a nail biter with the Titan giving away a good lead, and saw the Rabbitohs steal a 18-16 lead coming unto the dying minutes.
The refs struggled with discipline and sent Titans Nathan Friend for a stint in the bin and Souths saw that recipricated when Chris Sandow binned with a last minute penalty infringement against the Rabbitoh. The Titans fans had heart palpitations when the penalty to even the scores rebounded off the sticks and bounced in.
Golden point and Souths down to twelve men was always going to be controversial and this was compounded with a stripping penalty against Souths. The Titans kicked the winning field goal from the ensuing set to give the Titan the 19-18 win.
