Finals just one victory away for Under

THE Titans under18 side is just one win away from securing a finals berth in their inaugural SG Ball season.

The baby Titans will wrap up a spot in the top eight with a win over competition leaders the Bulldogs in the final round this Saturday at Boyd Street Oval at Tugun. Even if they lose, they should still scrape in if Newcastle defeat Canberra.

The Coast had a chance to cement their place at the weekend with a victory over the Knights, but after leading 80 they took their foot off the gas and allowed Newcastle back into the game to finish with an 88 draw.

If the Titans SG Ball side, which was created to establish a pathway to under20s and eventually the NRL, make the finals, it will be a huge achievement given it is their first year in the prestigious NSWbased schoolboy competition.

"At the start of the year there was no real expectation," said under18s coach Jamie O'Connor. "I just think it was good to see some Titans jerseys on some young kids in the local area. We set ourselves a few targets and one of them was to make the final eight.

"Now it is starting to become a bit of a reality.

"The boys . deserve all the credit they can get at the moment."

Among the standouts for the under18s this season have been centre Guy Borgas, prop Kurt Foggo, fiveeighth Jordan Rankin and top back rower Kurtis Lingwoodock.

The Titans under20 side is sweating on the fitness of skipper Ryan Simpkins after the workaholic back rower damaged rib cartilage during their droughtbreaking 3020 victory over Brisbane on Friday.

In the Titans favour is the nineday turnaround before facing New Zealand on Sunday and coach Steve Murphy said he was 'hopeful' of having his tough lock back.

Prop Steve Darby was named players' player from the Broncos clash, while Murphy also praised Queensland Cupexperienced forward Tyson Lofipo for an impressive Toyota Cup debut.

"It was just pleasing, and michael kors outlet store they all said this afterwards, that they stuck to the game plan," said Murphy. "The Broncos have beaten a lot of good sides in recent weeks.
