The first game of the finals series has been played and won by the Gold Coast Titans 28-16 over the New Zealand Warriors. From very early in the piece, you had the idea that it wasn;t going to be the Warriors night. Kevin Gordon scampered 60 m very early, and from then on the Warriors never really looked likely. The Titans also now can have a week off, if the other finals results go their way. Good start to John Cartwright and the boys.
