    Mata passes inside to Stewart, we win

    Williams catches the ball, we win

    Lyon kicks the goals, we win

    But you know what, that's footy and the titans were excellent

    Congrats to them on a great performance and we will see them in the finals

      As soon as I saw DCE haircut I knew we were in trouble tonight. Played poorly and still should've won the game scoring 3 tries to 2.

        The Titans played well.

        Disappointing loss but there was still a lot to like about that performance. Namely defence.

        Good game. High quality.

        Manly played well, so did titans.

        Very even should have been a draw.

        Gold Coast are a bad matchup. Manly lose to them every year as favourites, even in 2008 and 2011.

        On to next week,

        We defended brilliantly
        We stayed in the grind with a very physical pack until we started dominating them.
        We attacked with great structure.
        We scored more tries.
        Unfortunately God made up his mind that we weren't walking away with a win.
        At least we got no injuries!

        I actually think that was the best game I have seen this year, just a very disappointing result. Both sides defended really well, and barring bad injury runs, both should be up towards the top end of the table by the end of the year.

        Tom Symonds looked very promising tonight. Ran hard and good lines. Will be a very handy pickup.

        It's the 2 comp points that we may look back on later as the ones that got away ! That's what burns me up

        Does GOD stand for Goalpost of Doom? Because they were for Killer.

        David Gower should be our first choice kicker, He hasn't missed a conversion for 2 years

        Good arm wrestle game. Was even 14 all with 5 to go but the Titans got back to back dropouts which was the key. They held the right field position which is vital in a tied game. DCE made a bad error of dropping out on the full and that's the ball game. Yes we still had a opportunity to score in the last 2 minutes but we couldn't make the clutch play. That's Footy sometimes. A few tries were blown which are so important in close battles. Also letting the opposition get a 14 point lead will always make it difficult. However I'm still disappointed we couldn't grab the W. A winnable one but that's life. Learn from your mistakes and come back better. Gotta give it to the Titans who's pack really stood up against us and didn't back down. Oh well move ahead to next week and let's bounce back boys.

          Our second string pack went blow for blow with one of the best in the league.

          I was thinking that as well. I didn't realize he got a touch on that second 1 until the replay. Normally you love the hustle of someone pressuring a kicker. That time you just wish he didn't get a touch on it. 20 meter restart and we possibly get down the other end for a droppy or try. Always good to look back on what could have been when its too late lol.

          I'm with you Disco. All credit to Titans. They played better than us for most of the game. They deserved the win. Good luck to em. But you don't win premierships in March.
