Broncos. stage incredible comeback to get revenge over Titans

Brisbane have staged their greatest NRL comeback, beating Gold Coast 36-28 despite the Titans scoring four times in the opening 13 minutes of an incredible Friday night derby.

The Broncos trailed 22-0 after 15 minutes and looked all at sea before scoring 36 consecutive points to eclipse their previous-best 18-point comeback against Canberra 15 years ago.

A helter-skelter first half began with Jamal Fogarty grubbering twice and Ashley Taylor once to set up three easy tries and completely expose Broncos fullback Jamayne Isaako.

But, staring down a 24th loss from their last 26 games, it was Isaako who turned the tide for the under-fire Brisbane team.

The fullback wiped aside his horror start to dominate the remainder of the contest, scoring twice and setting up two more as Brisbane remarkably drew level at halftime.

Alexander Brimson was sin-binned for slowing the play in the lead-up to a try, a fired-up Tyson Gamble letting him know about it as the surprise inclusion breathed some life into the host's performance.

In just his fourth NRL game, the well-built 24-year-old halfback carried the ball strongly to the line and allowed Anthony Milford - back after two weeks in reserve grade - and Isaako space to create and expose some listless Titans defence that slipped off 21 first-half tackles.

Corey Oates then ran 95m after intercepting a Taylor pass to put the hosts ahead to start the second half before former Titan Jesse Arthars scored off another Isaako pass.

Fogarty then kicked a goal-line drop out out on the full, Isaako's penalty goal putting Brisbane ahead by 14 with 17 minutes to play.

David Fifita regathered his own grubber and looked to score for Gold Coast until a review found a knock on, before Tevita Pangai Jnr somehow stripped Brian Kelly when he was millimetres from scoring.

Mitch Rein finally found the line foir the Titans, the conversion cutting the gap to eight points with 10 minutes to play.

Fifita was denied again when he chased another of his own kicks only to plant the ball on the dead-ball line in what was a strangely kick-happy performance from the in-form wrecking ball.

In-form Titans winger Corey Thompson suffered an ankle injury while the game finished with both sides in a tangle and the rivalry renewed as Brisbane snapped a three-game losing streak against their neighbours.
