Controversial Win

  • Controversial Win

You could hear the Melbourne crowd booing the ref's off the turf from up here in Brisbane.

The Titans got up over the Storm 28-26 in the last minute when refs Ben Cummins and Brett Suttor awarded the Titans a penalty in the 79th minute - when the scores were 26 all - for a strip on Luke Douglas.

Now let's get down to brass tacks: Hinchliffe had a hand on that ball, even Stevie Wonder could see that. But in all honesty, it was a pretty feeble hand. It was a 50/50 call and could have been jagged as a lost or stripped ball.

Thankfully the call ended up going our way and even though Birdies boot wasn't all that flash throughout the game, he slotted this penalty over with the greatest of ease.

It was a great tit-for-tat game. Albert Kelly scored another long range try from an intercept, which is beginning to become part of his modus operandi.

Kevin Gordon showed his tight rope walking abilities by tip-toeing down the sideline to score. He later plucked a bomb out of Billy Slater's grasp and hurled it out the back in a spectacular offload for Brad Tighe to dive over in the corner.

Beau Falloon may find himself in a fair bit of hot water after conceding a penalty for a lifting tackle. After the recent tragedy of Alex McKinnon I think we may lose Falloon for a fair chunk of time.

In beating the Storm the Titans now find themselves in an enviable spot on top of the competition ladder and have declared in a brave voice, to be genuine threats.

Are the Titans destined for the Finals this year?
