Young half's impressive commitment to improve kicking game

Toby Sexton's 'Hail Mary' in the 79th minute may not have intended to hit the posts, but the young No. 7 is happy the miracle play came off to win the game against the Wests Tigers.

Plenty of credit is deserved for the Titans' kick-chase as well as the fortuitous ricochet, with the Gold Coast left edge rushing up around the ball, allowing for AJ Brimson to capitalise with the put-down to ultimately seal the 8-6 victory.

"I was aiming somewhere around there because I saw the boys in the middle of field, so I just try to aim at somewhere around there and let the boys contest it, but it ended up hitting the post and it come off in the end," Sexton said.

The Titans steal the win!

But such the mature player the Titans half is knowing the kick wasn't quite as on target as he had hoped, the 21-year-old spent almost half an hour after training today doing extras to help improve he and his team's pinpoint accuracy for this Saturday's blockbuster re-match against Parramatta - something he regularly does every session.

"I don't think it's been up to scratch lately, so we're putting a lot of time and effort into it and hopefully that transfers to the field this weekend," Sexton said.

"I feel I've just been inconsistent with it. I've put a lot of work and time and effort in, but I just think it's got to be a bit better in the games and a bit more consistent and build a little bit more pressure with it."

"I want to put it in the position that we want to put them in and we want to finish our sets as much as we can near the try line.

"At times, the opposition is starting their sets on the 20 or 30 metre line and it's not good enough from our behalf.

"I think we can really control that quite a bit and be better at it."

Only four games in as the club's full-time halfback, Sexton has really relished his playmaking role as he continues to build his combinations with newly-converted five-eighth Brimson and the Titans right side.

This has included being able to manage tight contests and close out matches in the final moments, just like against the Tigers on Thursday night.

"I'm really enjoying it. The boys are showing a lot of trust in me and I've built some good combinations over the pre-season," Sexton said.

"It's only early days as well and nothing's going to be perfect at this stage, but at the same time, we're really working hard to build on those combinations, especially with Jamayne (Isaako) coming into the side as well.

"We've spoken for a long time trying to win the game in the 79th minute and that's what we were able to do (on Thursday night).

"We copped a lot of criticism the week before against the Raiders, but [the week just gone] was just about playing footy for the 80 minutes and we were able to do.

"As a pairing, we took a lot of confidence out of it that we can stand up and win games of footy like that in the way we did it."

Unbeaten at home to start the year, Sexton can't wait to get back to Cbus Super Stadium to seek revenge against the Eels, who narrowly defeated the Titans in a contentious season opener.

"We're so pumped for it. It's going be a great clash," Sexton said.

"We're two from two at home at the moment and playing in front of our home crowd definitely helps.

"We saw the first week when we played Parra, their home crowd got them over the line there and we're hoping our crowd can do the same this weekend.

"We're really looking forward to playing at home."
