2021 was the biggest of Erin Clark's NRL career.
In just his second season at the Titans, Clark notched 19 games to his career tally both coming from the interchange bench and as starting hooker.
The 24-year-old says he's pleased with how his game developed this season and is looking to build further on his performances into 2022.
"I think before my injury it was quite exciting and I was quite happy with my performance.
"I've still got a lot to learn but for the year as a whole I was quite happy."
Clark had payed five games in the starting rake role, before an elbow injury saw him miss to rounds and return via the interchange bench.
The New Zealander says reaching the finals was a highlight for him in 2021, with the goal now to push even further next season.
"To play a finals series in my second year of NRL was pretty cool," Clark said.
"Hopefully we start off where we left off and hit the ground running.
I think we are going in the right direction at this club, we are on the up and you want to be a part of it as we get success."
While there were a number of standout performers for the Titans this season, it was two players in their first season on the Coast that caught Clark's eye.
"It'd have to be Dave (Fifita) or Tino (Fa'asuamaleaui)," Clark said.
"Dave, the media say what he can't do, but he has been the top try scorer and he deserves a lot of credit."
