Young five-eighth AJ Brimson is coming off a heavy seven-day period where he played three matches but insists the body is holding up well with seven matches remaining in season 2018.

The 20-year-old lined up for the Titans in Round 17 against the Broncos, played Queensland Under-20s on the Wednesday and then ran out in the Round 19 match against the Roosters, on Sunday.

"It's pretty sore (the body) but it's nothing too serious," Brimson said. "There was a bit of tightness after the game on Sunday but I'm pretty happy with how I pulled up.

"The plan was always to play (the three games) but Garth checked up on me. He didn't want me to go out there busted."

The Runaway Bay junior has been one of the Titans most consistent performers since debuting back in Round 10 but he hasn't let the constant news and life in the spotlight phase him.

"To be honest it's mainly my mum, whenever I go over for dinner she's always telling me stuff.

"I'm pretty slack and don't read a lot. She always reminds me when I'm in there (of what's in the news)."

A focus for Brimson has been the building of the relationship with halfback Ash Taylor which is really an on-going process.

"We don't really talk about the future too much. We have our little plan each week and we get on away from the field as well so that helps as we're always talking."

The halves battle this Saturday against the Newcastle Knights will be one to watch and Brimson will be keeping an eye on Mitchell Pearce who returned from a long injury last week.

"I respect someone like Mitchell Pearce, I think he's one of the best halves I've watched whilst growing up.

"He's always in the game, he's always pushing up. It'll be a good experience to be able to verse him this weekend."

The Titans take on the Knights at 3pm on Saturday at McDonald Jones Stadium, Newcastle.
