THE Warriors extended Gold Coast's off- and on-field woes with a comfortable 26-6 victory at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday night.

The Titans, who according to the Australian Rugby League Commission are under financial stress, slumped to their third straight loss while the Warriors picked up just their second win of the season.

Three first-half tries had the hosts 14 clear at half-time and contest was over just 10 minutes after the break when New Zealand captain Simon Mannering crossed.

In a blow for the Warriors, full-back Kevin Locke limped off in the dying stages.

The Titans fought hard but, in conditions that made handling difficult, they produced too many mistakes to put real pressure on the Warriors.
