Corey Thompson thought he was over for the first try, before dropping the ball with the line begging.

Oliver Gildart then spilled the ball at the other end of the field with the Tigers close to scoring in the corner.

Tyrone Peachey was sent to the sin bin for a professional foul reducing the Tigers to 12 men.

A crusher tackle allowed the Titans to sneak in a penalty goal for a 2-0 halftime lead.

However, the Tigers replied with a penalty of their own to make it 2-2 at the break.

“If there was one positive for both teams, they are defending their goal line,” Cooper Cronk said at halftime.

“Those last-ditch efforts by both sides have been stifled by decent defense.

“But I’ll tell you what, both side’s coach will have to have a really good halftime chat to get these teams up and about because they are unsure and playing with a lack of confidence.”

The second half followed the same pattern as the first until Jamayne Isaako ran behind David Fifita to gift Luke Brooks the chance to slot a penalty for a 4-2 lead.

Luke Brooks kicked a penalty goal to make it 6-2, before a stunning finish.

The Tigers spilled a Toby Sexton kick that bounced off the goal post with a minute to go in the in-goal and AJ Brimson pounced to steal a crazy win.

“You cannot write a more devastating script,” Ginnane said.

“They are absolutely shattered in the coaches box of the Tigers,” Alexander added.
