Aquis Titans coach Neil Henry looks at the tough loss in Auckland and where it leaves the team with nine rounds remaining abnd hopefully several players returning for the next clash with the Dragons.

He gave credit to Karl Lawton on his debut on Saturday then ended terribly with a broken leg in the 46th minute.

"Two centres gone in two weeks ... we can't do anything about it, we have to roll with it," he said. "Konrad Hurrell and David Mead are out there training today and hopefully they are both are available for the Dragons game and Shillo [David Shillington] might be too, so it would be good to welcome some troops back.

"Eddy Pettybourne should be available after having concussion but the outside backs are the real concern for us.

"To win one of the past two would have been good going into the bye. But we didn't.

"We're two points our of the eight now .. it would be nice to beat the Dragons, we need to get on a little roll and string some wins together like we did before.

"It's crunch time. Otherwise if we drop a couple of games we'll need to win the majority if not all of our games at the back end."
