Gold Coast somehow got out of Canberra with a victory, but their two competition points could be in jeopardy due to and interchange mix-up.

Titans prop David Shillington is believed to have strayed on to the field of play while five-eighth Tyrone Roberts was seeking treatment for a knee injury.

Ultimately, Roberts stayed in play for as long as he could to save the team an interchange and coach Neil Henry, who questioned why the interchange official would hand over the substitution card before Roberts was off the field, said Shillington was on the field for only “about five seconds”.

If Shillington is found to have run on to the field before Roberts was over the sideline, the Titans risk losing two points that also came about in controversial circumstances.
