'We've got to deliver on Sunday': Holbrook stresses importance of back-to-back wins

Titans coach Justin Holbrook is under no illusion the Sharks will be travelling to the Gold Coast with a point to prove after last weekend's disappointing loss to the Raiders.

Especially with his side coming off the back of a gutsy 20-16 golden-point victory against the Dragons in Magic Round.

"They'll be really determined to turn [last week] around after last week's performance for them," Holbrook said.

"But for us, we've got to worry about ourselves and I think we probably played with the right intent last week and we got it right.

"We've going to continue that on Sunday here at home."

'We’ve got to prove consistency' - Holbrook

Breaking a five-game drought with the gritty performance in horrendous weather conditions last Saturday, the Titans mentor knows it's just as important to back-up the showing with a strong game to show it wasn't just a one-hit wonder. 

We’ve got to prove consistency on Sunday. That’s what we’ll be judged on and that’s why we have to back it up," Holbrook said.

"There's nothing that I'm going to tell you now that's going to change anyone's mind.

"We've got to deliver on Sunday."

Given how quickly the NRL landscape can change with a few wins on the trot quickly jettisoning teams up the ladder, Holbrook is hoping his side can string a few strong matches together and follow in the footsteps of the other two Queensland sides who have found themselves in the top four.

"The Broncs have done it, the Cowboys have done it and St George won a few in a row there for a while," Holbrook said.

"If you just put your head down, work hard and take one game at a time, you can get it right.

"I don't think we've been too far off in a number of games, but now in particular, we've got Jayden (Campbell) back with AJ (Brimson) and Toby (Sexton), so I think that'll help the team collectively.

"We've got to produce it on Sunday. It'll be a good opportunity for us."

Moving Nicho Hynes back into the halves, the Sharks are set to unleash Rugby Sevens star Lachlan Miller who has been a revelation for Newtown in the Knock-On Effect Cup.

"It's sort of expected I guess. He's played there all year for them, but he's equally as good in the halves and has played plenty of fullback as well," Holbrook said.

"They've opted for Lachie Miller, who's absolutely lighting up the New South Wales Cup down there for them. He'll be in at fullback and he's a dangerous player."

The clash being Super Hero Sunday at Cbus Super Stadium, the Titans coach can't wait to see plenty of families pack the stands with their capes and masks, thanks to Warner Bros. Movie World.

"We've got a great time slot playing at 4pm on Sunday afternoon at home," Holbrook said.

"I think with a bit of luck, kids can get their sport in, but I'm not sure where the weather. At least one thing we know is we're definitely planned to play, so it'd be great for all the families to come out off the back of last week's win.

"We'd love to see a big home crowd on Sunday."

Super Hero Sunday is taking over Cbus Super Stadium this weekend!

On the field, the Titans will battle the villainous Cronulla Sharks in a must-win clash. Off the field, meet some of the DC Super Heroes from Warner Bros. Movie World; including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and more.
