6:59 am on 10 July 2010

Kiwis captain Benji Marshall kicked a 50-metre field goal on the stroke of half-time as his Wests Tigers edged the Gold Coast Titans 15-14 in a National Rugby League thriller in Sydney.

The battle between the third-placed Tigers and the Titans, who sit in fourth, was settled by the magnificent drop goal from Marshall under pressure on the stroke of halftime, which proved to be the difference.

The Sydney Roosters also scored a last-gasp 18 to 14 win over South Sydney.
