67th min – Luke Walsh from touch – hits the uprights!  Panthers 40 Titans 12

65th min – PANTHERS TRY – James Roberts hat-trick.  John gets the ball to Moylan, onto Tighe and the pace of Roberts too good!

65th min – VIDEO REF: Walsh kick across field and it appears Gordon knocks the ball back then the Titans force in goal. Simpkins then grounds the ball.  Decision: No try.  Goal line dropout.

HALF TIME – Ciraldo is penalised and Sezer will take the kick from forty metres out to level scores at twelve all.  The kick successful.  Twelve all at half time!

2nd min – Knock on by Matt Moylan from a tower bomb under his posts.
