Canberra clinch finals spot

7:15 am on 5 September 2010

The Gold Coast Titans have won a home National Rugby League semi-final with a 21-18 home victory over Wests Tigers at Skilled Park.

Kiwis captain Benji Marshall was again instrumental as Wests fought back from 13-0 down at half-time at Skilled Park to threaten a comeback win, but the Titans were too resilient.

The Canberra Raiders also secured their NRL finals place, ending Brisbane's hopes and their amazing September record with an 18-16 away win.

The Broncos will miss the finals for the first time since 1991.
