League legends and Fox commentators Braith Anasta and Steve Roach unleashed the Gold Coast Titans, calling their performance against the Sharks on Sunday “embarrassing”.
The team scored first try but gave up Fight inexplicably up from there, couldn’t compare it to Cronulla’s 14th place and eventually succumbed to a 38-10 defeat.
The Sharks have been fighting for form since coach John Morris was overthrown earlier this season, but the Titans had no response to the team’s attack.
Cronulla ran in 25 minutes for the first forty in four attempts and put the competition to bed before it even started.
The Titans boasted a pack of strikers who took on one of the top 4 teams and led Anasta to an all-powerful spray.
You come out here with the best team you have had in a long time. It’s a shame
Former international Steve Roach added, “If you want to be fair about making eight, you have to be desperate.”
It was a bad effort. They had everything to play. There was hardly a whimper.
During the audition, the switch between Shaun Johnson and Matt Moylan in the half was a complete success when Cronulla buckled up a bland Gold Coast 38-10 in Coffs Harbor.
The off- Contract duo only played together for the fourth time in the 6 and 7 and connected as if they had been next to each other for years.
Johnson registered an experimental assistant and kicked seven out of seven to collect 14 individual points in his 200th game, while Moylan brought in two experimental assistants and 156 running meters.
The Titans were terrible, conceding twice when the Sharks dropped to 12 and lost the full-back and hopeful Queensland Origin’s AJ Brimson to a leg injury in the second half.
It was Cronulla’s most complete performance of the year. built on the back of the Johnson Moylan Show.
Their cohesion is sure to have caught the attention of new coach Craig Fitzgibbon, who has hinted that he is more than happy to work with the current roster rather than rushing to the open market to find a playmaker .
Johnson and Moylan worked on both the right and left sides of the field, often bonding directly to free Cronulla’s outer back.
Johnson’s kicking game started off badly. his first cultivator almost hit the back fence? but he quickly found his rhythm to keep Gold Coast constantly on its back foot. Sharks interim coach Josh Hannay denied the decision to drop Premier League-winning halfback Chad Townsend and the couple Johnson and Moylan, the work of Fitzgibbon, but there is no doubt that the performance will match the new boss “Shaun and Moysa only played three games together while they were with the Sharks, so it’s not a lot of work for us to judge that combination.” Hannay said.
“The decision was mine and it was a tough one for Chad (Townsend), but I’m really excited to see what Shaun and Matt can do in the future.”
Cronulla did the last Won six games against the Titans in a winning run that goes back to 2017.
The Titans led 6-0 early on, but then gave up 38 unanswered points as their defensive weaknesses were not revealed for the first time.
