It's the Titans attack that's been spoken about in the aftermath of a 44 points to 8 win over the North Queensland Cowboys but forward Jarrod Wallace says it's the Club's defence in the early stages that helped set up the win.

With the kick-off going out on the full and the Cowboys throwing everything at the Titans in the opening exchanges, Wallace says defending their line was important for the Gold Coast side.

"Especially in that first 20-25 minutes, we probably didn't win the ruck as much as we would have wanted to," he said.

"They're (North Queensland) such a fast, agile and big team ... but they boys kept turning up and we didn't let any tries in and we kept turning up and scrambling which was really good.

"Last week (against the Broncos) there was a lot of emotion and everyone always gets up for those games but it is the games after them that you've got to roll out (and perform)."

Replacing the injured Ash Taylor, Wallace called out Tanah Boyd for a strong performance at five-eighth, while also acknowledging the work of Tyrone Peachey who started the game at lock.

"I thought Tanah (Boyd) was really good," Wallace said.

"We didn't want him to come in and overplay his hand.

"It's obviously a really good thing that he has that connection with Davey (Fifita) from Keebra Park.

"Having Peach (Tyrone Peachey) in the middle, he was fantastic there for us last year and he's been playing some incredible football.

"Having that ball-player through the middle takes a bit of pressure of me and big Tino (Fa'asuamaleaui) and Moey (Fotuaika)."

The Titans attention turns to back-to-back home games at Cbus Super Stadium, starting with a clash against the Canberra Raiders on Saturday night.  Tickets are still available for the match.
