Recruits Tino Fa'asuamaleaui and David Fifita both had starring roles in the Titans round 2 victory over close rivals the Brisbane Broncos.
After his club debut last week was interrupted by two days in hospital battling a leg infection, Fifita delivered the type of marquee man performance the club would come to expect with 12 runs for 136 metres and eight tackle breaks leading the way up front.
Only a HIA assessment in the 63rd minute could stop Fifita, although he returned in the final minute for a charge down typifying his never-say-die attitude.
"I felt sorry for him last week with the criticism he came under, if you'd seen the week he had you might not have been so tough but we get judged on the 80 minutes," Titans coach Justin Holbrook said.
"I'm just really happy for him. He had a really good week and then showed what he is capable of tonight.
"As I said all along he is a back-rower in the side and he just has to do his job. That's all we need from him."
Fellow high profile Titans recruit Tino Fa’asuamaleaui was dominant in the middle with 139 metres from 14 runs, while Jarrod Wallace and Jaimin Joliffe both scored close range tries straight through the Broncos goal line defence as the Gold Coast forwards outmuscled their rivals.
Holbrook said he was impressed with all of his forwards and particularly bench hooker Erin Clark who straightened them up out of dummy-half and was rewarded with a try just before half-time.
