The Gold Coast Titans have book-ended last weekends bye with losses. Tonight, despite scoring first crashed at home to the Roosters 30-16 in a disappointing loss. The Titans winger David Mead scored a hat-trick of tries, while Shaun Kenny-Dowell scored a double for the Chooks. It must be said, that the Roosters took their chance during a frenetic second half, while the Titans had enough chances to win two games, but were let down by poor execution and wrong choices. The amount of times the Gold Coast boys dropped the ball on early tackle counts while in attacking position was incredible. Mitchell Pearce stamped his claim for an Origin spot with a masterful return from injury, while Nate Myles just kept turning up and going for it.
