FULLTIME: Not without trying, the Panthers have gone down to the Titans 28-10 at Centrebet Stadium. The referee’s are being booed from the field. A third straight loss. The game was close with five minutes to go and the Panthers on the attack but a loose pass from Walsh and the Titans went upfield and scored. A scrappy game often influenced by referee decisions and they’ll be more pressure on the ref boss Daniel Anderson to scrap the farcical obstruction rule after Tom Humble’s first half try was denied after Sika Manu took out Greg Bird.

SECOND HALF: The second half has just got underway with the Titans up 12-0. The visitors to receive the ball first in this half and the Panthers need first points.
HALF TIME: Titans 12-0 ahead. Whare got an offload metres from the line and Kingston couldn’t hold the ball. The Titans sufficiently holding down the Panthers on their line making it hard to get a quick play the ball. It could easily have been twelve all if Humble (obstruction no try) and Walsh (knocked down in scoring) were given. But the Greg Bird try after poor discipline near their own line put the home side on the back foot. Hopefully better luck in the second half for the Panthers.
