The huge loss will not be the only thing troubling the Tigers with their captain Robbie Farah forced off the field minutes before halftime with a dislocated knuckle.
Both sides got on the scoreboard early, with the Titans scoring through Jamie Dowling in the sixth minute before the Tigers scored through Liam Fulton in the ninth minute. Both goal kicks were successful with their first conversion attempts.
The Titans reclaimed the lead in the 14th minute when David Mead sliced through the Tigers' defence.
Neither team looked convincing as the match progressed, with plethora of errors coming from both sides, however back-to-back sets in 30th minute saw the Titans score through Brad Takairangi.
The Titans were over again in the 37th minute this time through Dave Taylor who proved too strong for the defence. Sezer added the extras to give the Titans a 24-6 lead into the break.
The Tigers looked the better side for much of the second half, howevertheir inability to convert pressure and field posession into points was going to be costly.
It wasn't all good news for the Titans, with Greg Bird being placed on report. They will head to Sydney next week to take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, while the Tigers will take on the last placed Parramatta Eels.
