Warriors fight off spirited Titans

THE Launceston Warriors started their season with a 22-18 win over the North-West Titans at Royal Park yesterday.

The Warriors had a bye in the competition's opening round and were a little slow into stride yesterday with the Titans taking an early 8-0 lead.

The team then settled and was on the receiving end of some good play from Jerry Kyalea, Perry Chancellor and Sam Rice.

Kyalea finished the game with two tries while second-rower Sam Rice won the man of the match award.

The Titans were best served by Brett Bentley and David McGinley.

The Warriors will play their next game against South Hobart Storm at the Hobart University on Saturday.
