Warriors beaten in first round of NRL

5:58 am on 15 March 2010

The Warriors coach Ivan Cleary says conceding a try just before half time was probably the turning point in their National Rugby League opener on the Gold Coast.

The Warriors were up 18-6 against an error-ridden Titans side, however the homeside scored on the half time hooter and Cleary says that probably made a difference psychologically during the break.... Gold Coast went on to win 24-18.

He says the Titans made better decisions late in the game, while some of their decision making wasn't good and so it was a game that got away from them.

However he says they can take some lessons for their next match against the Cronulla Sharks.
