Jarrod Wallace has been around long enough to know that a first round loss doesn't mean a bad season ahead.

"In 2015 (when I was at the Broncos) and made the grand final, we lost to Souths (36-6) and look what we did.

"The hype that was around us, we didn't buy into it too much and I just think we went into our shell when we shouldn't have and Justin (Holbrook) will change that and fix that this week."

The former Queensland Origin prop also knows that his side will have to quickly return to form to get a win in Friday's local derby against the Broncos at Cbus Super Stadium.

"We just have to be better," Wallace said.

"There's no talking about it.

"We've just got to get it done."

Coach Justin Holbrook said his side let in a couple of "soft barge-over tries" against the Warriors, something which Wallace says the Titans will quickly rectify.

"I know Jimmy Dymock (Assistant Coach) will really pull them apart.

"I think it will come down to fatigue and guys switching off and not switching on in periods of the game.

"Barge-over tries are a non-negotiable.

"They are a lazy effort for that to happen and to get two against us on the weekend I know Jimmy won't be happy about it and neither will Justin.

"I'm sure there'll be a a bit of tackling this week to make sure we're not doing that again."

Wallace notched 114 running metres and 28 tackles in his first game of 2021 and will be looking to continue his strong personal form into the Macca's Local Derby against his old club when the Titans meet the Broncos at Cbus Super Stadium on Friday night.
