Consistency key for Proctor with six games to finals

It was the win the Titans needed, but co-captain Kevin Proctor knows his team now needs to back it up and show some consistency if the Gold Coast side is to be a finals contender.

The Titans defeated the Dragons 32 points to 10 in round 19 and sit just two points out of the NRL's top eight.

The side will play the Bulldogs at Cbus Super Stadium this weekend as the "away" team, before returning to Robina next weekend in a home clash against the Cowboys.

Proctor says the performance against the Dragons was important, but it now needs to be replicated on Sunday.

"It was a good win and we needed it if we were to stay in touch with the top eight," Proctor said.

"If we keep playing like that (finals are alive), but it is the consistency that has been stuffing us around this year and we haven't been consistent at all.

"We need to stay on top of that and this week we've got a Sunday game at the same time so everyone just needs to prepare like we did last week and hopefully we get the same result."

The 32-year-old says the focus wasn't on trying to prove critics wrong, instead it was about the team proving to themselves that they could execute what was being trained.

"I don't think we have to prove anything to anyone but ourselves, we have been letting ourselves down by playing dumb," Proctor said.

"We are always working hard and that's not our downfall, we have just been working dumber not smarter.

"We played a lot smarter on the weekend and we got the result we wanted but it all comes back to the hard work and the prep through the week.

"All the boys have got the belief, but it gives us the confidence in our game plan and our defensive structures and where we want to go for the back end of the year."
