Bull­dogs add to Gold Coast woes

Herald on Sunday - - SPORT -

Can­ter­bury com­pleted a mis­er­able week for Gold Coast with a 26-14 NRL win at Cbus Su­per Sta­dium yes­ter­day. The Ti­tans, who sacked coach Neil Henry on Mon­day, slumped to a sixth con­sec­u­tive de­feat as their sea­son con­tin­ues to un­ravel. For the fifth week in a row, they were un­able to score a sin­gle point in the open­ing half. The Bull­dogs charged to a com­mand­ing 20-0 half­time lead on the back of a Will Hopoate dou­ble — the for­mer New South Wales State of Ori­gin player’s first tries of the year. The Ti­tans mounted a sec­ond-half fight­back through tries to Ty­rone Roberts and An­thony Don. Ash Tay­lor summed up the past few days for the Ti­tans, how­ever, in the 76th minute when he threw a spec­u­la­tive pass on his own try­line straight to a grate­ful Josh Mor­ris to seal the win for the visi­tors.

Will Hopoate scored twice.
