Jarrod Wallace heads in to Saturday's clash with the Roosters after playing arguably his best game of 2021 in the Titans round 13 loss to the Melbourne Storm.
Playing 57 minutes (the most of the season so far), Wallace notched 116 running metres, 22 tackles, 2 offloads and a try.
The prop wasn't alone, with Jaimin Jolliffe, Sam McIntyre and Jai Whitbread all performing strongly through the middle of the park.
The Titans forward knows he'll need to be at his best again this week, against a Roosters pack that will be led by veteran Jared Waerea-Hargreaves.
The 32-year-old remains one of the games forward leaders and as vice-captain of the Sydney side, he will again be a key figure at Cbus Super Stadium this week.
JWH will play his 250th NRL game in the clash against the Titans.
The New Zealand international is averaging 144 metres per game across 2021 and will be looking to continue his strong form on Saturday.
Wallace is also averaging over 100 metres per game, and with Tino Fa'asuamaleaui and David Fifita re-joining the Titans pack from Queensland Origin duty, there will be extra firepower on show.
With classy fullbacks like AJ Brimson and James Tedesco and exciting wingers like Greg Marzhew and Daniel Tupou, there are plenty of appetising matchups to choose in this game.
The one that will arguably matter most will be through the middle and it'll be the two veteran leaders in Wallace and Waerea-Hargreaves who will have a big say in whether their respective team wins on Saturday.
