Halves pairing to get second shot as Holbrook rules out a late change

After making a great start to his NRL career in round 19, Titans coach Justin Holbrook said that he won't be making a late change to his halves combination for Monday's clash against the Bulldogs.

Speaking on Friday (before the Titans game was re-scheduled to Monday) Justin Holbrook said he was pleased with his halves pairing that included debutant Toby Sexton.

"I was really happy with last weekends game against the Dragons," Holbrook said

"Jamal (Fogarty) is not 100 percent yet, so I'm likely to leave it was it was last week for this weekend.

"He's still got it taped up and he is still restricted with the movements in his fingers, so I'll leave Toby in there ... and it gives Jamal a chance to get himself 100 percent right so I'm unlikely to bring Jamal in last minute."

Holbrook says he isn't expecting anything different from Sexton and is looking for the team to notch back to back wins for the first time since round three.

"Another performance like that (is what I'm after), which is what we haven't been able to do since the start of the season," Holbrook said.

"He (Sexton) did a great job last week and has got a lot of pats on the back and he's done a bit of media which is good for him and he handles that no worries but it is about switching his focus to this week now.

"You can get caught out a bit with the hype around it and he obviously delivered which I knew he would.

"It's about going out and doing it again this week now ... what the whole side needs is consistency and Toby will be a big part of that."

David Fifita has been named to start this week, but after playing an impact role from the bench against the Dragons, Holbrook says there is still a chance that he might have a similar task this week.

"Yeah there is (a chance he will be moved to the bench), I think it worked great for us last week," he said.

"We don't need him to play 80 minutes ... I could go with him coming off the bench again, I'm not 100 percent sure yet."

Sitting one win outside of the top eight, Holbrook says he knows that every game is a must-win in the lead into the finals.

"There is pressure on again to win and I get that and it's part of it," he said.

"We want to be forcing our way into the eight and we put ourselves in this position so there is no point complaining about it we have just got to get on with it and play well."
