Josh Hoffman knows the Aquis Titans are taking on the premiers in warm Townsville on Saturday (5.30pm). But if the side stick to what they believe in, he has faith they will win.

The Titans know the deal this weekend. Beat the Cowboys and eighth spot is ours. Lose and we rely on the Raiders beating ninth-placed Wests Tigers.

'Hoffy' knows it is the preparation this week, starting the game a lot tougher than they did against the Panthers, matching the Cowboys pack that includes five Origin or Test players but if we match their pack, and minimise Johnathan Thurston's opportunities, and we will be in the game.

Watch what he had to say.
