Last played: Titans v Warriors

There was only one point in it at the end, but the Warriors dominated the Titans more than the 25-24 scoreline reflected when they met in Round 8 earlier this season.

Gold Coast secured a late consolation try and Shaun Johnson kicked just two from five in what was an overall dominant performance by the Auckland side in front of their home fans.

The Warriors led 16-6 at halftime, and Johnson finished the star of the show with nine points including the decisive field-goal in a masterful and controlling effort.

The New Zealand-based team dominated most of the major statistical categories including metres gained (1201 to 1114) and line-breaks (five to four), conceding fewer missed tackles (17 to 25), too.

For the visitors, centre Jamal Idris was their most dangerous player, running for 150 metres, breaking seven tackles, busting the line twice and finishing with two four-pointers.
