    You can't make this stuff up.



    - - - Updated - - -

    Taken from the Courier Mail article....

    THE NRL has left itself open to more claims of nepotism by sacking two officials from the Canberra Raiders-Cronulla Sharks refereeing debacle but retaining Gerard Sutton in first grade.

    Sutton, the brother of referees boss Bernie Sutton, has had a slight demotion to handle the New Zealand v Gold Coast game despite the fact he ignored a touch judge’s flag and refused to stop the game.


    If you don't laugh you'll break something.

    ^^^ yeah and Sutton was the referee when we were robbed in that semi final against the Drongoes in 2016
    He’s an absolute cheat and it’s a disgrace we have to cop him

    There is a limit and that’s it! Whoever said that should apologize to both the Titans and the Warriors. That’s totally uncalled for and any spin on ‘I was referring to the scheduling priorities’ just won’t wash. What an ar$ehole.

    Brennan at his press conference today once again dropped his “we’re a young side” line. He’s now offering excuses pre-game. I don’t like it. He’s covering his bum with this mantra.

    Morgan did his shoulder in the preseason (dislocation). Then busted it again in round 8 against the knights (no dislocation but too much loose movement). They were tossing up wheather to operate or not and decided to rehab it for a couple of weeks and see how it went.

    I think it still bothers him pain wise and he is a bit down on confidence with it. Surgery in the coming off season??

    Demoted to a TITANS v WARRIORS NRL game. What a stunning insult. And let's remember, the NZ Warriors are in the 8!

    It’s Hip to play fair
    http://www.gcbulletin.com.au

    GOLD Coast coach Garth Brennan has warned newly re-signed forward Keegan Hipgrave to rise above the baiting or expect a demotion to reserve grade.

    The 21-year-old is tipped for big things and last week committed to a Titans side that will boast a pack full of representative forwards next season.

    Hipgrave has earned a reputation for his aggressive on-field ways and this week described himself a “controlled loose cannon”.

    Last month he became the first NRL player in 16 years to be sin-binned twice in one game, spending two stints off the field in his side’s Round 14 loss to South Sydney.

    Brisbane’s pack also got the better of him and, after conceding another ill-timed penalty in the weekend’s loss to Newcastle, Brennan said Hipgrave needed to stop being taken advantage of by opposition nigglers.

    “He’s got to be smarter than that. That’s just being dumb,” Brennan said.

    “You’re going to play against a lot of players that are very good at that (niggling).

    “If you’re going to bite every week then you’re going to be spending a fair bit of time on the sideline and if you’re doing that you’re going to be spending a bit of time at (Queensland Cup feeder clubs) Tweed or Burleigh.”

    Hipgrave gets the chance to heed Brennan’s advice when the Titans take on the eighth-placed New Zealand Warriors at Cbus Super Stadium on Sunday.

    Kane Elgey is on standby for boom Titans five-eighth AJ Brimson as he battles to overcome a concussion suffered on Saturday.

    Elgey has not played at NRL level since Gold Coast’s Round 7 loss to North Queensland in April.

    A groggy Brimson was helped from the field in Newcastle after copping a heavy hit while attempting to make a tackle.

    Veteran second-rower Will Matthews has been named to make his return for the game, with prop Leilani Latu set to be relegated to 18th man.

    For the Warriors, Blake Green and Tohu Harris have been included but they lose suspended prop Adam Blair.

    Out-of-favour Titans recruit Bryce Cartwright is set to return for Tweed Heads after almost a month out following a broken hand.

    Cartwright had been dropped by Brennan before the injury after a string of poor defensive efforts.

    Titans v Warriors: Green, Harris back for Warriors
    http://www.nrl.com

    Tough loss for the Warriors last week – their fourth at home this season. Their determined effort against the premiers would've been sufficient to beat most teams, but the Storm are the masters of low-scoring trench warfare and the Warriors shouldn't have lost any confidence.

    Strangely enough, the Warriors have been more successful on the road than they have at home so they should feel good about their chances against arguably the competition's most inconsistent team. They also have a lot more to play for than the Titans and look they're in a finals frame of mind judging by last week's committed display.

    They need Blake Green to return fully fit but the Warriors should still be aiming for a top four finish, despite the solid form of the teams above them.

    The Titans ruined their faint finals hopes by blowing a 24-10 lead against the Knights last week and their main motivation now will be to play a nuisance role in the run to the finals.

    Key match-up: Ash Taylor v Shaun Johnson. Taylor has come under fire at different stages of the season and has been feeling the heat again lately after some up-and-down performances. The main knock on Taylor is that he looks content to sit back and let the game happen around him, rather than taking ownership of his team and putting his stamp on the game. He does it at times but the Titans would be a lot better if he could motivate himself to stay switched on for 80 minutes. He should embrace the challenge of out-playing Johnson. It may or may not be good enough to get his team a win but at least it might get a few critics off his back.

    For the Titans to win: Again the main factor here is what the Titans get out of Taylor. If he can weave some of the magic he's capable of and be a true leader, an upset isn't out of the question. The Titans also need a collectively strong performance from their forwards to try to take some of the sting out of the Warriors' big pack.

    For the Warriors to win: The Warriors should have too much attacking potency in their spine, especially the irrepressible Isaac Luke. If Luke, Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck lead the way the Warriors will have too much pace out wide. They should also look to utilise their size and speed up front.

    Titans Stat Attack: Fullback Michael Gordon may be in the twilight of his career but he still gives it his all each week, leading the entire league in support runs with 496 (well ahead of the second-placed Luke Keary's 432).

    Warriors Stat Attack: The Warriors dominate this match-up, winning 14 of their past 15 games against the Gold Coast. They are unbeaten at Cbus Super Stadium since 2010. David Fusitu'a has scored seven tries in seven games against the Titans.

    And another thing: Since joining the NRL in 1995 as the only non-Australian club, the Warriors have qualified for the finals seven times, capturing their only minor premiership in 2002 and playing in two grand finals ('02, '11). If they were to end up dropping out of the top eight it would be their longest finals drought (eight years) in club history. The Titans have been in the competition since 2007 and reached the playoffs three times.

    Titans: Will Matthews replaces Leilani Latu on the bench in the only change.

    Warriors: Blake Green returns at five-eighth for Mason Lino. Tohu Harris is back in the second row; Simon Mannering moves to lock with Adam Blair suspended. Sam Lisone replaces Tevita Satae on the bench.

    Head-to-head: Played 23; Warriors 16 wins, Titans 7 wins
    Previous result: Warriors won 20-8 at Mt Smart Stadium in round 2
    Points per game: Titans 18.4; Warriors 18.9
    Points conceded per game: Titans 25.1; Warriors 18.7
    Televised: Live on Nine, Fox League

    Petero Civoniceva's prediction: I think the Warriors win this one. They weren't too far off the mark against the Storm and they've got a lot to play for, so I see them competing strongly through to the end of the year. The other factor is that the Warriors have been one of the best teams on the road, even though they haven't been as successful at home. The Titans had a good lead last week against Newcastle and couldn't finish the job and I just don't see them winning this game given what's at stake for the Warriors.

    Tip: Warriors by 8

    Does anyone else remember this?? Wonder how we can look up the history of games between us and them at Robina

    PS would really appreciate someone posting evidence or a link to our last win at Robina against NZ if there ever was one.
    Hey Bods, the “Rugby League Project” website is a good resource for finding out the answer to this sort of question. Here is a link to a page that has links to display our head-to-head record against other teams in the comp: http://www.rugbyleagueproject.org/te...head2head.html

    If you then click through to us versus the Warriors you can click on the 'add/change parameters' link if you want to then limit the list to games played at Robina: http://www.rugbyleagueproject.org/ma...1uLS0tLS0tLS0=

    It doesn’t make for pretty reading; we’ve lost seven straight!
