Knights fall short on the Gold Coast

The nib Newcastle Knights have gone down 36-26 to the Gold Coast Titans in Round 24 at Cbus Super Stadium on Sunday night.

In a high scoring affair on the Gold Coast, the Titans scored seven tries to the Knights five to take the two points.

With one match to play, the Knights will look to finish their season on a high note when they play the Sharks next weekend.

The match kicked off on a sunny afternoon and double header on the Gold Coast.

Newcastle were on the attack in the opening minutes after the Titans kicked the ball out on the full from the kick-off.

The boys charged down field with Edrick Lee putting the finishing touch on a fast start.

The winger flew in the air to come down with the ball and open the scoring inside two minutes off an Anthony Milford kick.

The Titans responded with two quick-fire tries of their own through Greg Marzhew and David Fifita before the 12th minute mark.

Daniel Saifiti levelled the scores after crashing over next to the posts with 13 minutes remaining in the first half.

In the final ten minutes of the first half, the Gold Coast scored another two tries through Tanah Boyd and Beau Fermor to extend their lead to 24-10 at the break.

Needing to be first to score, the Knights responded after the break with Dom Young acrobatically plating the ball in the corner inside three minutes of the second half.

For the home team, AJ Brimson was causing havoc and scored the Titans sixth and seventh of the night to stretch out the Titans lead.

The Gold Coast were reduced to 12 men when Brian Kelly was sent-off for a dangerous throw on Dom Young.

Chasing the game, Dane Gagai produced a brilliant effort to break the line and make his way over to reduce the scores to 16.
