World News – UA – ‘It’s between the ears’: O’Brien dismayed on the eve of the final after knights whipped by the Titans


Newcastle coach Adam O’Brien admits his side’s 36-6 flogging at the hands of the Titans started and ended’ between the ears’ as the Knights missed a golden chance to lock in their first home final since 2006

Equation was simple for Newcastle Defeat Gold Coast and book the club’s first final at McDonald Jones Stadium in over a decade

The result was a 36-6 flogging that turned into a debacle in the second half This isn’t the first time Newcastle have collapsed under the first suspicion of pressure

« This is a big concern (The lack of consistency) is consuming a lot of my thoughts right now And moving forward is something I need to tackle Through the summer

« But again, that’s not going to help me next week Following the trend we’re on the rise next week with the way we’re going right now

If it had been against the 2019 Titans, it would have been a simple job for O’Brien However, Justin Holbrook’s Titans are a completely different proposition.They will play football’s final in 2021

Holbrook had a very limited roster at his disposal this year and the club finished ninth They only won four games last season, finishing with the wooden spoon, which has since moved up M1 to Red Hill

They have doubled that winning tally in the space of 12 months and, with David Fifita on his way to the club, their stocks will skyrocket

Holbrook turned unknown prop Moeaki Fotuaika into a Queensland Origin prospect, unleashed the electric AJ Brimson, and ultimately harnessed the potential of million dollar playmaker Ash Taylor This trio â ??? ? with Brian Kelly â ???? were Gold Coast’s best in the club’s fifth consecutive win

The same can’t be said of the Knights They were embarrassed Friday night O’Brien has an all-powerful task to transform this team in the space of a week

Performances like this have affected their season The club still have no semblance of resilience when the game does not go as planned

Maybe Newcastle already had an eye on the Rabbitohs O’Brien probably won’t accept this as an excuse They threw in the towel in the second half Their defense was not standard in the final It was barely NRL standard Final number of missed tackles reached 41

The Titans are brimming with confidence, but Newcastle made Gold Coast look like the Roosters at their unstoppable, high-octane best

The ambush began in the first set Gold Coast’s first try was a long-range effort, which was both started and scored by Taylor in the third minute

The second half was all about Brimson Newcastle’s header officially fell when Brimson set Cbus Super Stadium on fire in the 51st minute

Queensland’s State of Origin team may be in desperate need of a few outside full-backs, but Kevin Walters shouldn’t think twice about picking Brimson
