Taylor says defence setting up Titans wins

Ash Taylor played a key role in the Titans 34-6 victory over the Bulldogs on Monday night and says it is their defence setting up the clubs victories, not attack.

Taylor had a hand in three of the Titans tries and scored one himself as he finished the night with a handy stat sheet next to his name that included 92 run metres, 1 try assist, 1 line break assist, 1 offload and 231 kick metres.

Taylor credited the back to back victories to the hard work the team had been putting in at training as he spoke to Fox League post-game

"The boys are really working hard at the training and it is showing," Taylor said

"I think we are just training really hard and working on our game.

"I think it (success) comes from our D (defence), we have really worked hard on that in the last few weeks and not so much on attack.

"If we keep working hard at our defence then our attack will come off the back of that.

"When we are short of numbers we have to keep scrambling hard and that is what won us the game tonight with our scramble."

The round 20 clash was the second game in a row where Taylor partnered rookie halfback, Toby Sexton, in the halves for the Titans and with Co-Captain Jamal Fogarty due back this week is enjoying the blossoming combination so far.

"Little Sexy (Sexton) is going great and obviously not having Jamal there, but we are working well together so far.
