The North Queensland Cowboys have consolidated third position on the National Rugby League ladder after a 24-10 victory over the gold Coast Titans in their round eight contest last night.

The visitors scored three tries to two to consign the Titans to their first loss at Carrara, with poor discipline gifting the Cowboys three penalty goals .

Dual international Mat Rogers was the stand-out for the losing side in rain-affected conditions with a brace of tries as the Titans suffered their fourth defeat of the campaign.
