BRENNAN: We did some good things

Head Coach Garth Brennan spoke to the media after the trial match in Toowoomba last night. 

It was the Broncos who proved too strong at the end of 80 minutes, with a 38-10 victory over a much younger Titans side.

Brennan, who was in control of his first match in Titans colours was happy with the effort.

“I’m happy with the trial, a lot of young guys out there playing against the big boys for the first time,” Brennan said.  

“There are plenty of positives to come out of it and the good thing as there were no major injuries.”

With a host of big names on the sideline, including Ryan James, Kevin Proctor, Jarrod Wallace, Ash Taylor, Nathan Peats plus many more, Brennan was content with the hit-out.

“They did well to score some late tries and there’s plenty to be excited about moving forward. We can take a lot out of it. It’s all experience from a game like that.”

One player that has been a hot topic of conversation since arriving at the club, is lock forward Bryce Cartwright. The former Panther pulled on the Titans jersey for the first time and will be better for the run next week.  

“He was pretty quiet. He only got the 20 minutes and didn’t get a lot of opportunity but the good thing was he got the ball in his hands and got to work with a lot of guys he doesn’t know.

“It was just to blow some cobwebs off. He’s in a new environment, with new structures so I thought it’d be good for him to have 20 minutes out there to give him a bit of a head start for next week.”  

With so many on the sideline, Brennan was asked if they’ll be out there next week for the trial against the Warriors on the Sunshine Coast.

“If they’re fit, they’ll play. If there’s any question marks over any of them, I won’t.”
