    Default Titans Juniors score four from four in "Double Header"

    Titans Juniors score four from four in "Double Header" action at the weekend.
    14/03/2011 3:36:43 PM
    The Gold Coast Green junior representative sides continued their winning ways this weekend in the Mal Meninga and Cyril Connell Cup "Double Header" round with two wins a piece against some rugged opposition in the Toowoomba Clydesdales and the Ipswich Jets.

    In the Meninga Cup, the Gold Coast Green under 18's produced a solid 38-4 win over the Clydesdales on Saturday and edged out the Jets in a closely contested 16-12 win on Sunday while the Under 16's recorded 26-22 and 14-4 wins in their respectives encounters.

    While both coaches were happy with maximum points from what are considered to be the toughest rounds of the competition, they were both of the opinion that their is still much room for improvement in their charges.

    "We are working hard in defence and competing well through the middle but then we seem to let ourselves down when we should be converting this work into points,?? said 18's coach Jamie O'Connor, a view echoed by his Cyril Connell Cup counterpart Aaron Zimmerle.

    "I am very happy with our forward game and we create plenty of half chances due to our ability to build pressure but we need to play with a little more patience. Do this and the points on the scoreboard will start to come." He said.

    "I was particularly impressed with forwards James Iodice who was best on field over the course of the weekend and Joey Weggert who played big minutes in the back row and was everywhere in defence. In the backs Dylan Pelo and 5/8 Nathan Wilson had strong games, both in defence and in their playmaking roles." He added.

    The "Double Header" concept was introduced to the format this year to allow for cost effective intrastate competition and although physically demanding it does give the representative sides a chance to test themselves against their Northern peers.

    Next weekend is a bye round for the entire competition before Rounds 4 and 5, the second of the double headers that will see the Titans juniors take on the Sunshine Coast and Central United.
