NRL Double Header: Second is Sometimes Best
The Titans were all over the Bulldogs and then suffered a major deal in losing Scott Prince with a major hamstring tear in the 29th minute of the first half. The Titans led 24-6 just five minutes after the commencement of the second half, but it was the injection of live-wire Ben Barba that gave the Doggies and thier fans a sniff. Pouncing on a perfect Michael Ennis grubber to score was Barba first impact. After that, a break down the right side of the field, before slipping a pass to Jamal Idris, who crashed over, brought the Dogs within a converted try.
A 75th minute field goal gave the Titans some breathing space with a seven point lead, breathing space they needed as Barba and Idris combined again for Barba's second try with sixty seconds left, leaving the scorleine as 25-24.
