Titans smite Knights

WAYNE Bennett described his Newcastle side's performance as embarrassing as the Titans ran over the Knights 24-14 at Hunter Stadium on Saturday evening.

After a surprise win over the Bulldogs a fortnight ago, the Titans notched up another upset to pick up their fourth win of the season and draw level with the disappointing Knights.

It was Gold Coast's first back-to-back victory since the 2010 finals series.

Ashley Harrison, Nate Myles and Greg Bird all backed up from State of Origin with tremendous results, the latter two both crossing the stripe along with the outstanding Matt Srma and winger David Mead.

The trademark defence Bennett had hoped to rebuild the Knights with was exposed, especially against their own try line.
