Corey Thompson and the Titans are disappointed to not be at home this weekend, but are not going to let the change in scenery affect their focus.
The Titans were forced into a late change of venue for the Round 4 heavyweight clash against the Raiders after a COVID breakout in South East Queensland and will now play as part of a double header at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium in Sydney.
Speaking after their first training session at their temporary home in Leichardt Oval, Thompson said the side was disappointed but focused on getting the right result this weekend.
"We were going to try and pack out Cbus and make some noise and really make that a fortress for us at home, so to have the game taken away from us is annoying but we have a job to do Saturday against Canberra," Thompson said.
"It was a little bit frustrating to be told on such short notice, but we had to come down to make sure we play this weekend.
"It was frustrating after two good wins and planning on being at home this weekend against a quality side like Canberra, it was going to be a good test for us."
The Titans are hopeful to be back at Cbus Super Stadium next weekend against the Knights and Thompson and co. want to make sure they give Titans fans something to cheer about ahead of then.
"What better way than to come away with a win and get the Members excited and hopefully, fingers crossed, we are back on the Gold Coast next weekend against the Knights," he said.
"We had a team meeting and we spoke about it again at training and we have a job to do down here."
In a positive reflection of the current mindset of the team, Thompson found the positives in change.
"Obviously it's not the preparation we thought we were going to have, being at home, everyone prepares differently with family, kids and partners, but you know we got flown down here in a chartered flight and straight to the hotel and it's a sunny day here and now we are preparing for the Raiders at Kograh."
