Luke Douglas really stepped up in the absence of Nate Myles on Monday night against the Rabbitohs and topped the tackle count with 38 and ran for 117m from 19 hit-ups. But beyond the stats was the quality if his work. He’ll be keen to ensure the forwards dominate as the Titans chase their first home victory since round 6 against the Broncos.

David Shillington has hit a purple patch of form even though the Raiders are struggling to win matches. In the two games between Canberra’s two byes he has averaged 160 running metres from 24 hit-ups and has continually bent the defensive line. The Titans must reduce his go-forward.
