Caleb Binge came back a fortnight early from a knee injury to play a pivotal role in the Titans' shock upset of the Bulldogs on Sunday.
Caleb Binge wasn't supposed to play for the Titans on Sunday.

He wasn't even supposed to run for another fortnight but when Luke Bailey was told he risked serious injury by playing with a neck injury, Binge insisted on taking the field.

"One of the blokes who has been such an influence on me is Luke Bailey and it was meant to be his spot but he couldn't play his last game and that would have devastated him. I had to try to play to his standard because I didn't want to let him down, not him of all people," said Binge after playing just his second game in the top grade.

He was only supposed to play 25 minutes but lasted 34 and racked up 171 metres from 16 carries, as well as the block run for the match-winning field goal by William Zillman that will never appear in any statistical records.

It was one of a host of courageous tales from arguably the Titans' most inspiring ever victory. There were so many battered and broken bodies at the end of 84 minutes that if they'd had to play again this weekend, they would not have had enough players from their first grade squad available to field a team.
