McIntyre chasing diamonds in finals fortnight

"What's the saying, diamonds come from pressure or something like that?"

With two games to go in the regular season, Titans forward Sam McIntyre says the pressure to win both games to make the finals can bring out the best in the Gold Coast squad.

"The more pressure the better, there's good reward at the end of pressure.

"Pressure is good, I like pressure."

RD 24 - Sam McIntyre - Press Conference

After three straight wins, the Titans have dropped the last two games against top-four sides South Sydney and Melbourne.

McIntyre says it hasn't dented the sides confidence and they're well and truly focussed on the end goal.

"We obviously had the goal of making the finals and that's what we want to do and we are in the position to do it but we've just got to win," he said.

"Two games and two wins and we're in the finals and that's the plan."

Back into the side and starting at lock, McIntyre says he's full of confidence and is excited for the challenge of the next fortnight.

"I was stoked to be back in the side and lucky enough to be starting ... I just wanted to do everything I could to keep my spot and to do the best for the team.

"We've got to win the last two to make the finals and it's pretty exciting, two wins and we are in the finals.

"We are looking forward to making the finals and getting these next two wins."

Should the Titans claim a finals spot, McIntyre says they won't be there to just make up the numbers.

He says he remains confident that the Titans best football can challenge any team in the competition.

"Anything can happen in the finals, that's the best thing about rugby league, you don't know who is going to turn up on the day.

"We might slip in there in eighth and go on a winning streak like the boys did at the end of last year and get to the grand final and win it, you don't know.

"It is a funny game rugby league, it doesn't matter where you finish you've just got to get in there.

"We've got to win every moment and be good for the full 80 minutes and we can beat any side if we can do that."
