Games often come down to the last minute in the NRL and as the old saying goes, ‘it’s all just a game of inches’, inches are what awarded the Gold Coast Titans win as Aidan Sezer soared high and grabbed the ball from the hands of Ben Barba to score the winning try for the Titans.

The win cements their first spot in what has been a very promising start for the club, given their previous failures to make the finals in recent years.

With five wins from six, the Titans now enjoy a 4-point buffer on the ladder – albeit for 24 hours most likely – as they enjoy the view from the top.

To the satisfaction of just over 20,000 home fans, it was a win that the Titans can be proud of, given they fought until the end and showed grit to overcome the deficit.

Although the Titans would have preferred an easier win, they know that it is not always the case.

“You want to win easy against good opposition, but it never happens,” said Titans coach John Cartwright.

“To win tonight, I always thought it was going to be a tight affair and it worked out that way.”

Their success is not down to just one factor, with co-captain Nate Myles putting their good form so far down to the fact that each player is playing their role.

“Everyone has just stepped up a little bit in regards to our they are at training and away from football as well,” said Myles.

“I have no doubt that if we lose that little edge and some of the professionalism that it will no doubt show on the field.”

“We need to keep working hard and try to improve.”

The Broncos were left disappointed post-game, feeling that it was a game they should have won. With the momentum in their favour, captain Corey Parker knows there is work to do for the entire side.

“It was building nicely there and as Hook said, we probably didn’t execute the way we should have,” said Parker.

“That try they got off the kick certainly didn’t help, so they got some momentum off that.
