Decimated Dragons fall to Titans

11:42 am on 11 June 2011

Lady luck finally smiled on Gold Coast as the Titans overcame a patched up St George Illawarra 28-14 to give their flagging NRL premiership hopes a much-needed boost on Friday night.

After struggling to a 8-4 half-time deficit against a Dragons side ravaged by injury and State of Origin call-ups, the Titans came out firing after the break, halfback Scott Prince the chief architect of the much-needed comeback.

It was the Dragons' first loss since March, the absence of eight players including six stars in Origin camps too much for the premiers to overcome.

Despite the loss the Dragons remain top of the NRL table while the win lifts the Titans off the bottom of the ladder into 14th.
