In a stop-start affair, what the Titans lacked in discipline, the Rabbitohs made up for in sloppiness.

Both teams butchered tries but South's 16 errors kept the Titans in the game, despite the hosts giving away 12 penalties.

An early second-half penalty proved the difference as each side scored three tries. Alex Johnston's 47th-minute effort was enough to keep the Rabbitohs in front, despite James charging over from close range in the 31st and 59th minutes in his best performance of the season.

Souths were without all four Origin representatives after late scratchings Angus Crichton and Damien Cook joined Greg Inglis and Dane Gagai on the sidelines.

Game-ending injuries to Max King (shoulder) and Moeaki Fotuaika (head knock) meant long nights for Gold Coast's Queensland pair Jarrod Wallace and Jai Arrow, who were playing for the second time in three days.

The Titans, in Garth Brennan's rookie coaching season, drop to 4-9 and further adrift of the top eight.

Both teams were wasteful in a first half that produced 10 penalties, 14 errors and a handful of botched try opportunities.

First, the Titans threw away four points when Hipgrave and Dale Copley spoiled each other trying to simultaneously plant the ball.

Then, Robbie Farah dropped the ball over the line after finding acres of space through the ruck from close range.
