Titans beat Broncos in NRL trial

The near full-strength Titans won the match 18-16, but the home side's victory came at a heavy cost as hooker Beau Falloon (suspected torn biceps) and flying winger Kevin Gordon (sore knee) left the field in the first half.

The Broncos weren't spared either. Backrower Dunamis Lui was forced off with a biceps injury and winger Aaron Whitchurch was placed on report for a late hit on forward Luke O'Dwyer.

They shared the roles of pivot and hooker, with Peter Wallace also playing second receiver at times during a scrappy match.
