Two converted tries inside the first eight minutes to Graeme Bradley and Paul Smith gave the visitors a 12-0 lead.

The Giants chipped away at the deficit with back to back penalty conversions to trail 12-4, and whilst it was countered by a penalty conversion to Shayne Stead, the Gold Coast would narrow it to 14-8 with an unconverted try after 23 minutes, and would remain the half time score.

A 64th minute field goal to Greg Alexander made it a four converted try margin before Alexander finished off the scoring with a try with only three minutes remaining.
