After just six minutes against the Newcastle Knights, the Titans lost winger Phillip Sami for the game after his head hit the shoulder of Tyson Frizell.

It meant a re-shuffle to Justin Holbrook's side that saw Patrick Herbert move from the centres to the wing.

The 24-year-old wasn't effected by the shift, having arguably his best game for the Gold Coast since joining the club in the off-season.

"We reshuffled and it's good to see the boys scramble well and adjust to those changes and we can take positives out of that," Herbert said.

The Titans scored eight tries in a 42 points to 16 win, with Herbert scoring a double.

"It's always good to get a 'meat pie' and to get my first one for the Titans is pretty special," he said.

"All of the boys played good and played their part and it allowed me to get a double.

"Everyone had a part to play and there were some that stood out like David (Fifita), (Tyrone) Peachey played a really good game and (Corey) Thompson was good.

"All of the boys clicked and knew their role and everyone just flowed off the back of it."

With Anthony Don due back from injury for next weeks game against South Sydney and Sami having played well at both centre and wing in recent weeks, Herbert knows that there is competition for spots.

He says it's motivating all of the outside backs to lift their performances.

"It's a good thing to have the depth that we do in the outside backs," he said.

"I think that brings the best out of people.

"We have to just get better and better now."

The Titans will play Manly in round six and will be looking to replicate their last start performance against the Sea Eagles where they won 42 points to 24 in round 19 last season.

The game will be played at Glen Willow Oval in Mudgee, with the team to return to Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast for a blockbuster ANZAC round clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
