Titans lock, Tino Fa'asuamaleaui was a standout for the Maroons in Origin III and brought that running momentum to the Titans last weekend.
The young forward started the season like a bull out of the gate before a two-game suspension slowed up his momentum.
After a bumper 2020 where he won the NRL Premiership with the Melbourne Storm and the State of Origin with the Queensland Maroons, the Gympie product came into the Titans full of confidence to start the year.
Much like the form of his team, it has wavered a little through the middle part of the year, but a Origin challenge last Wednesday sparked the best in Fa'asuamaleaui.
Facing the prospect of a series whitewash, the Maroons rallied at the home of the Titans, Cbus Super Stadium, and Tino was in the thick of it.
He started the night with a try assist and finished it with 101 run metres, a line break and 36 tackles to help lead his side to victory.
And the form for Fa'asuamaleaui continued into the NRL arena as the big man ran for 141 metres and made 33 tackles as he tried to inspire his team.
State of Origin may have sparked the best in Fa'asuamaleaui and it is not just the Maroons that will benefit, as the Titans look to make a late season push for finals in 2021.
Can he take his side to finals? Time will tell, but Tino is back up and running and that is a good thing for Titans fans.
