Dogs win as Titans suffer several injuries

The financially embattled Titans (the property arm), just cannot seem to catch a break – with the side not only losing at home to Canterbury, but they are potentially set to lose 3 games for decent periods of time.

Greg Bird, Mark Minichello and Kayne Lawton, all suffered ankle, foot and hamstring injuries respectively – and all will undergo scans to confirm the extent of their injuries tomorrow.

Although Bird was in horrific agony at the time of the injury, it is believed that he has only suffered an ankle sprain, and not a broken ankle – as was first suspected .

The Titans started the game with all of the early running, racing out to a 10-0 lead, before they fell of the pace and trailed 18-14 at half-time, on the back of great work from Ben Barba and Josh Morris.

Scott Prince, who made his return to the game after he was a late call-up, was full of praise for the enigmatic and livewire fullback, Ben Barba.

“That’s the kind of player he is, he’s a game breaker, give him a chance and he can hurt you,” said Prince.

The improved defence from Barba came directly from Dogs coach Des Hasler, with the experienced campaigner having a stern chat with Barba about improving it.

“He came up with two try saves today, that was the most pleasing part of his game for me,” he said.
