Titanic struggle ends in defeat for Gold Coast

CARETAKER Neil Henry almost launched his latest NRL coaching career with the Gold Coast by orchestrating a huge upset over Manly who landed a penalty kick after the siren to seal a 15-12 win.

The victory edged the Sea Eagles back to the top of the ladder on 34 points, two ahead of South Sydney.

The Panthers can join Souths on 32 points if they beat North Queensland at home tonight.

The Titans were in the game for the full 80 minutes, with the score locked at 6-6 at half-time.

Game-breakers Kieran Foran and try-scoring phenomenon Brett Stewart (pictured) scored for Manly, with Daly Cherry-Evans knocking over a late field goal to give Manly a psychological 13-6 buffer. It was Foran's strong bust from halfway that set up Stewart's match-winner midway through the second half.

A Kalifa Faifai Loa try, converted by Aidan Sezer in the closing minutes, cut the margin to 13-12 to set up a grandstand finish

In the end Manly's class and the cool heads of Foran and Cherry-Evans got it home, while the Titans slumped to their eighth straight home loss.
