Try-scoring Thompson keeping an eye on flying Fifita

Corey Thompson has six tries through the first five rounds, but when asked about his strong start to the year he laughs.

"I've just got to try and beat Dave (Fifita) that's my goal," Thompson jokes.

The second rower sits alongside Thompson having also crossed six times.

The winger says he's had to set some rules for the powerful forward.

"I just tell him you can score one and then give me the ball," he says with a smile.

"(Seriously though), I'm just happy to play well and if I score that's a bonus, but I'm just trying to keep up with Dave at the moment."

Thompson and Fifita have formed a strong left side partnership and the 30-year-old says it is the style of footy that's allowing them to shine.

"We get told just to play footy and play eyes up and obviously we are going to make errors doing that but the coaching staff give us so much confidence to be able to play like that," Thompson said.

"It helps when you've got big Dave (Fifita) on the left causing havoc and he gives it to BK (Brian Kelly) and I'm just lucky to be on the end of it.

"Inside me it's BK, Dave and Ash and when they're confident and playing well it makes my job so much easier.

"I've just got to run hard and stay connected to BK in defence.

"I just laugh and smile watching Dave, he is like a little kid playing footy again.  He's just so happy and confident and the whole team thrives off it."

While Fifita scored a hat-trick last start, it was Jarrod Wallace who picked up the three Dally M votes against the Knights.

Thompson says while he might be going under the radar publicly, his team-mates all know how well the prop is going.

"Not at training he isn't under the radar, he tells us how good he is going and shares his stats," Thompson laughs.

"It's so good to see J-Wal playing so well, he is an Origin player and hopefully he can continue his form and get back into the (Queensland) squad."

As for his own Origin chances, Thompson says he isn't concerned with talk that he could make a debut in 2021.

"No I'm not looking towards it, I'm just playing well for the Titans each week to make sure Justin keeps picking me," he said.

Having started his career at the Bulldogs, with stints at Wests Tigers and in England before landing on the Gold Coast, Thompson is in line to reach the 100 game milestone in round nine against his old side (Tigers) at Campbelltown.

"I don't like looking too far ahead on anything ... but I think it is a month or four games away and I'm excited to reach it but I've got play well to make sure I'm still there for that 100th game."
