    Gold Coast Titans v South Sydney Rabbitohs

    Rookie winger Alex Johnston scores a try during the round nine NRL match between the Gold Coast Titans and the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Cbus Super Stadium.

    Souths have demolished the Titans with a seven tries to three, 40-18 victory. The Titans had no answer to the Rabbits' surging forward play. The Burgess brothers were once again dominant for the red and green but hero honours go to Dylan Walker who bagged four excellent tries. The Titans have been frontrunners this season but they'll be worried their bubble has burst against a side that was superior in all areas of the park. A great win for the Bunnies.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 40

    79th minute:

    Dave Taylor, all 122kg of him, fell on a Kelly grubber to score. Conversion unsuccessful.

    Titans 18 Rabbitohs 40

    77th minute:

    Luke Burgess is on report for hitting Ash Harrison in the melon in the tackle. It was accidental but these days the rule book doesn't recognise accidental head hits.

     

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 40

    75th minute:

    Reggie the Rabbit is going nuts on the sideline as a Fijian-style Souths backline movement peters out only metres from the stripe.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 40

    73rd minute:

    Dave "Coal Train" Taylor has tried hard all night but he hasn't been able to compete with the Burgii.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 40

    70th minute:

    George Burgess, showing the step and touch of a young Bob McCarthy, unleashed a peach of a pass from under his wing to Alex Johnston who scored in acres of space. Goodwin converts. 

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 40

    67th minute:

    Dylan Walker bags four. The Rabbitohs No.3 received a jaffa of a ball from Inglis then skipped past two defenders to score. What a moment for the Mascot Jets junior. Conversion on target.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 34

    65th minute:

    Geeze Souths' goal-line defence is good. 

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    62nd minute:

    Greg "In my better moments I look like Ben Mendelsohn" Bird gives away a penalty for lifting above the horizontal. An uninspiring mini-stink ensues.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    61st minute:

    The Titans have conceded two no-tries in quick succession so they'll be thinking luck is on their side for the final 20 minutes.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    60th minute:

    That man Walker picked up the crumbs from a Reynolds up-and-under and bolted over for what looked like try No.4 - but there was a knock-on in the bomb fallout.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    57th minute:

    What a bulldozing run from George Burgess. He got a glimpse of the line from 10m out and charged like a rhino/bull/overly large and scary jungle animal at the stripe, but the ball fell loose under the pressure of a thousand Titans defenders.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    55th minute:

    John Cartwright is tearing the follicles of the hair he used to have out as Douglas drops the ball in the centre of the park.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    53rd minute:

    Tonight's attendance is 19,107.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    50th minute:

    Adam Reynolds is on the ground in pain - he got injured making a tackle. The Souths No.7 had a back spasm in the first half. And now he's trudging off.

     

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    46th minute:

    Awesome effort Alex Johnston. Kelly smashed a sky-scraping bomb and Johnstone plucked it from the rooftops before running 95m to score. Seriously wow! Alas, for him it was ruled there was obstruction along the way so no try.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    44th minute:

    Too easy. Reynolds waited for the defence to come up so there was a massive gap at the back, then grubbered deftly for Walker to nail the four pointer. Reynolds converts.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 28

    42nd minute:

    Luke Douglas has been a battering ram for the Titans tonight.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 22

    Flashback #2: South Sydney score a try during a clash with Gold Coast Chargers in 1996 during a rare premiership match at Redfern Oval.

    What a seesawing half. Souths blitzkreiged the Titans early on - running in four unanswered tries as they threatened to run up a cricket score. The Burgesses and Inglis were at their marauding best. But the Titans, with Ash Harrison leading the way, came back strongly in the last 15 minutes. Souths looked very tired when the siren sounded, and they'll have to ramp it up a gear if they're to control the second stanza.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 22

    38th minute:

    Kelly's crossfield bomb saw a bunch of players jump for the ball, but only Alex Don could seize it. Regulation kick try. Sezer converts.

    Titans 12 Rabbitohs 22

    35th minute

    The fact Souths took the shot at goal suggests they've lost a bit of steam and are starting to doubt themselves. Or maybe it was a tactical move gone wrong. Either way, the Titans have their tails up.

    Titans 6 Rabbitohs 22

    33rd minute:

    Souths get piggyback penalties for offside and lingering in the tackle, setting Reynolds up for a two-pointer right in front. Amazingly, he fluffs it. He could have thrown that over.

    Titans 6 Rabbitohs 22

    31st minute:

    Titans on the hunt in the Rabbits' 20 but Greg Bird spills the pill in a killer of a smothering tackle. Souths' defence is a deadset form of attack. Inglis and the Burgess brothers are doing the damage.

    Titans 6 Rabbitohs 22

    29th minute:

    The veteran Ashley Harrison is really firing his teammates up with some inspirational runs. He has to. 

    Titans 6 Rabbitohs 22

    26th minute:

    Stat that says it all: Souths have had 66% of the ball, the Titans 34%.

    Titans 6 Rabbitohs 22

    In the earlier game today, the Warriors gave the Raiders their second successive flogging

    Read the match report here

    25th minute:

    Titans hit back. Anthony Don intercepted a Sutton pass and scooted 60m to the line. Great pace. Sezer converts.

    Titans 6 Rabbitohs 22

    22nd minute:

    At last some grunt from the Titans. David Mead gathered in a Reynolds punt and charged at the Souths's defence like Karmichael Hunt used to: full bore without concern for personal safety. 

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 22

    Flashback #1: Gold Coast winger Bennett King, who later went on the coach the West Indies cricket team, is roped in by the South Sydney defence in 1988.

    21st minute:

    The Titans' defence up the centre of the park is woeful.

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 22

    17th minute:

    So far it's better than a point a minute, so at this stage we're on target for a century...

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 22

    14th minute:

    Reynolds engineered a break then threw a delightful long pass to Alex Johnston who cruised in on the right flank. The Titans are shellshocked. Goodwin steps up with his trusty left hoof to add the extras. Retnolds' ankle is causing him trouble

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 22

    11th minute:

    Souths are running amok as Reynolds squirts through a gap and sets up another Rabbit raid.

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 16

     

    8th minute:

    Walker burrowed and barged his way over in the corner, taking three Titans with him. Awesome power from the Souths' No.3. Reynolds converts from the sideline.

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 16

     

    5th minute:

    Auva'a jinked then powered his way to the line, but fell short of the stripe. He wasn't held, so he bounced his body over, forcing the ref to go upstairs for double movement adjudication. Conversion unsuccessful.

     

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 10

     

    4th minute:

    Souths on the rampage as George Burgess busts through the guts of the Titans' defence. 

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 6

     

     

     

    2nd minute:

    Great start for the Bunnies as Dylan Walker crashes over in the corner, finishing off a slick passing, 70m movement. Reynolds converts.

    Titans 0 Rabbitohs 6

     

    It's perfect conditions for footy - 20 degrees - as Souths kick-off.
