Titans forward Leilani Latu says the time for talk is over and it is time for the Gold Coast to let their actions speak for them after a dismal first-half showing against the Broncos at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday.
The Titans produced a better second half against the Broncos, going toe-to-toe in a 6-all second 40 minutes, but it was not enough to stem the bleeding from a disastrous start to the game that saw Brisbane lead 28-6 at halftime.
The final 34-12 scoreline equalled Gold Coast’s biggest loss of the year, and they now must regroup and refocus before meeting defending premiers the Roosters at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday.
“You can’t really put it into words,” Latu said when asked how the Titans players felt about their first 40 minutes against Brisbane.
“It is all about actions, really. We can say what we want, we can say everything that will try to motivate us, but it is basically letting our actions speak for ourselves.
“As humiliating as it is seeing us lose like that, especially to a young Brisbane team – it hurts, but it is a learning curve for us.
“There are still positives that we can take out of that. We don’t have any time to (dwell) on it.
“We are coming up against the Roosters next , so there is little time to feel sorry for ourselves. We’ve just got to move on now.”
