Fotuaika says "rollercoaster" 2021 will help the Titans grow for next season

Moeaki Fotuaika isn't known for his try scoring prowess.

After notching two tries in his debut season in 2018, he didn't cross the line at all in the following two seasons.  In round three against the Cowboys, he finally broke the drought.

He scored three in total in season 2021 and finished the year with a spectacular try against the Warriors.

Fotuaika sends the Titans into the finals in style

In reflecting on the 2021 season, the hard working front rower starts smiling when asked to talk about his try scoring highlights.

"It happened all pretty quickly," Fotuaika grinned when asked about the try against the Warriors.

"As the ball went wide, I just thought if I support up the middle that something might happen.

"Patty (Herbert) had the ball and looked back on the inside and he kicked it.

"I don't think he was kicking for me, I think he was kicking for JC (Jayden Campbell) because he wouldn't have expected me to be there.

"I was lucky enough that I got there, JC just told me that it was mine so that was good of the young fella to let me get a meat pie."

The 21-year-old says there is plenty to take from season 2021, but the key for the young Titans side is to now become more consistent in 2022.

"I think we started really good and had a couple of good wins and all the boys were playing good footy," Fotuaika said.

"I just think towards the middle of the season there were a few results that didn't go our way.

"Towards the end, we started playing good footy and came together as a team and we really knew what kind of footy we wanted to play.

"If I could explain the season in one word, it'd probably be a rollercoaster, but it was good to finally get that experience of playing finals footy."

Fotuaika was among the Titans best each week in 2021.  Asked to nominate his standout for the season, it was a forward partner who caught his eye.

"My top performer would probably be our player of the year, Tino (Fa'asuamaleaui)," he said.

"He is a player that leads with his words and his actions.

"I'm excited that I get to play with him at the Titans and it'll be good to keep playing with him throughout my years here."
