The Titans lost the unlosable in round three while Wests Tigers lost a game it looked like neither team wanted to win.
Gold Coast went up 22-0 before being run down by the Raiders in a third straight match that went right down to the wire, with just one win so far from three nailbiters.
The Tigers were often their own worst enemy in round three against a Warriors side that seemed intent on returning the favour, with the visitors eventually clawing out a win.
Both sides enter Thursday night's clash off a reduced turnaround and intent on making up for the errors that have marked their respective seasons so far.
