Warriors v Gold Coast Titans
Round 18, 2011
Mt Smart Stadium

The Warriors prevailed 22-6 at Mt Smart Stadium in Round 18 last season to break a four-match losing streak and begin their charge towards the grand final.

In a dour affair that belied the brilliance of what the Warriors would produce in the coming weeks, the home side relied on a deft kick from James Maloney for Shaun Berrigan to open the scoring after eight minutes. But it wasn’t until after the break – when they led just 10-6 following a try to Titans fullback William Zillman – that they finally secured the two competition points.

It was Feleti Mateo that provided the spark the home side was looking for when he collected a Maloney bomb before flicking the ball out the back for Simon Mannering to push his way over. Kevin Locke then sent Manu Vatuvei across out wide to ensure victory.

The Warriors completed just 61 per cent of their sets bit still managed four line-breaks to nil in a match that also saw Mat Rogers’ comeback last just 60 minutes before he broke his foot.

Mateo was the standout player on the field, making 30 tackles and 157 metres as well as contributing five tackle-breaks and five offloads.

Anthony Laffranchi made 46 tackles for the Gold Coast.
