It is always interesting to see life through the eyes of a child; it makes you realise what an impression we leave on the younger generations. This report from the last of our junior journos for the year, young Tyler Kay from Byron Bay, is no exception.

At just seven years of age, the trip to Skilled Park was almost beyond exciting for Tyler. He really enjoyed the experience and being a part of the the Titans’ day. He did a wonderful job reporting on the last home game for 2013.

Story by Tyler Kay

On Saturday night I went and watched the Titans play against the warriors.

It was Mark Minichiello’s 150th game; he’s the first person to ever play that many for the Titans. I was going to interview him but it was a very tough game and Mini got knocked in the head and couldn’t come back on the field. The Titans had a very good game and only just got beaten.

My favourite player is Kevin Gordon and he nearly got the winning try but the video ref said ‘no try’.

I got to go into the sheds after the game and meet a few of my favourite players and they signed my Titans’ football. I got photos with them. They were a bit sad because they lost but they all played really good. I hope they win the grand final.

I had so much fun, I can’t wait to do it again! GO TITANS.
