It was a perfect night with the boot for Jamal Fogarty in the Titans round three clash against the Cowboys, with the Gold Coast co-captain kicking eight goals from eight attempts.
He laughed when asked in a media conference why he gave a smile to the crowd after his last kick from the sideline sailed through the uprights to give the Titans a 44 points to 8 victory.
"I was getting some good advice from a couple of locals in the grandstand telling me to 'f off' and to go back to reserve grade," Fogarty said with a smile.
"So all I was thinking was I hope I kick it so I could give a little bit of cheek.
"It's part of the game and on the weekend I got the last laugh so I'm happy to take that one."
After an away loss to the Warriors in round one, the Titans have responded with back-to-back victories against Queensland rivals (Brisbane and North Queensland).
"That was probably our most complete win as a team," Fogarty said.
"I think the 17 guys that ran our there on the weekend, we knew our role and I think we executed it for a large chunk of the game.
"I think it is a good building block for our team, two good performances, and it's about loading up against Canberra this week at home."
The Raiders present a fresh challenge for the Titans squad, with the Gold Coast side yet to take on a top eight team from season 2020.
"I think Canberra have been one of the most consistent teams for the last couple of years now and their roster has been together for a long time and they know how to play and get the job done.
"For us I think this will be a good reality check to see where we are.
"Hopefully we can put together another good performance, especially being a home game, and that will see where we are at as a Club so it is a good challenge for us.
"Canberra has got an awesome pack, they've been playing together and they're very experienced.
"We still are a young squad, so this will be a good test for them on the weekend to see where we're at as middles but also as a whole team.
"The last two weeks we've been building as a team with good performances so to come up against an awesome Canberra team this weekend we will see where we are at as a whole Club but also as individual players as well."
After picking up three Dally M votes as the best player on-field in the Titans last start win, David Fifita will be looking to carry his strong form into the home clash against the Raiders.
Fogarty says while it is great that Fifita and fellow recruit Tino Fa'asuamaleaui are playing good football, it's about keeping their role simple within the team.
"Davey is just playing his role within the team and that's all we ask of Dave is to make his tackles and to have some runs here and there, it's all about sharing the load here within our squad.
"He (Fifita) hasn't really surprised me, he's been doing awesome things since he has been at the Club in the pre-season and you sort of sit back and think this kid has so much footy in him for his age.
"We just need Davey to keep being Dave and that's having good carries, making his tackles and staying healthy and fit for us to help us have a shot at finals at the end of the year."
The Titans host the Raiders at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday night with kick-off at 635 local time and tickets are still available.
