The Titans secured its first win after three months with a 44-24 victory over the Sea Eagles last night.

The Gold Coast, who headed into the match with a 10-game losing streak, ran riot against Manly for their biggest win of the year.

The result all but ends Manly’s top-eight hopes, while they also lost winger Jason Saab to a suspected ACL injury in the second half.

Props Jarrod Wallace and Jaimin Jolliffe – who were both late additions to the starting side combined for the opening try.

This was shortlived with Manly’s Reuben Garrick cancelling it out with his own converted try a short time late.

Former Sea Eagle Brian Kelly was able to pick off a pass from Daly Cherry-Evans and took it 60 metres for a try which gave the Titans a 20-12 lead at the break.

The second half was all about the Titans, with Beau Fermor scoring before AJ Brimson made the most of a fortuitous bounce to score his side’s fifth, two minutes before David Fifita ploughed through the Manly defence for another.
