A MASTERFUL display by Gold Coast half-back Scott Prince helped the Titans snap a five-match losing streak, with a 26-14 victory over Manly on Saturday night.

It was a case of last year's wooden spooners against the reigning premiers, but neither side played up to their title at Brookvale Oval, much to the dismay of the largely pro-Manly crowd of 11,619.

The Titans showed an energy in attack and defence which eluded them through 2011, while Manly sorely missed its international quartet of Tony Williams (suspension), Kieran Foran (hamstring), Brett Stewart (ribs) and Glenn Stewart (thumb).

Titans skipper Prince masterminded the victory, laying on three of their four tries, including two in the second half with pin-point cross-field kicks to wingers David Mead and Kevin Gordon that extended the visitors' lead to 14 points.

The 32-year-old also kicked five goals in a man-of-the-match performance, easily his best of the season.
