Titans score gutsy NRL win, Manly beat Dragons

1:24 pm on 2 June 2012

Gold Coast continued their mid-season surge with an eye-catching 28-12 National Rugby League win over North Queensland at Skilled Park on Friday night.

Ridiculed as 150-1 Premiership outsiders after a horror start to 2012, the Titans' disposal of a quality Cowboys outfit would have had bookmakers running for cover after their third straight and most impressive win.

Elsewhere a hat-trick of tries from young winger Michael Oldfield sealed a 20-8 NRL win for Manly over St George Illawarra.

The win ended a run of four successive defeats at the hands of the Dragons for the premiers.
