'A chance to make our fans proud': Jolliffe fired up to finish year strong at home

Hard man Jaimin Jolliffe is the first to admit this season hasn't quite gone to what was hoped by the Titans' playing group, members and fans.

But despite that, it doesn't change the ability nor desire to run out this Sunday and make the Gold Coast proud in the club's second last home game of the season.

"It's a massive game for us. We've been very disappointed with our season and that's no secret," Jolliffe said.

"Every opportunity to run out at Cbus is an opportunity to make our fans proud and make our families proud as well.

"We've got a big turnaround this week, so we're going to have a tough week of training and hopefully we can put our best foot forward against [Manly]."

Going down to the Storm in Melbourne 32-14 on Friday night, the Titans impact forward - who has been more than impressive in his role off the pine over the last month - was happy they challenged the Storm, but was also disappointed in a couple of key moments in the clash.

"It was a frustrating game. I thought for good periods there, we were in the fight and I didn't think the Storm really liked that too much," Jolliffe said.

"There were also a few things on ourselves, I don't think we finished our sets off in good positions and we made it hard for ourselves."

Charging Jolliffe puts the Titans in the lead

The loss was compounded by the loss of Aaron Booth to serious injury - suffering a multi-ligament rupture - but the Titans rake is in good spirits and has the support of not only his playing group, but the entire NRL community by his side.

"He's doing alright mentally. He's got the support of all the boys here in the club and anyone who knows Boothy knows that he'll work so hard to get back," Jolliffe said.

"He's probably the hardest worker at this club, so he's got a lot to offer the NRL and he'll obviously assess what needs to be done.

"He's a terrific guy and hasn't got a bad word to say ever. He's got some good mates across the NRL, so the support is definitely there.

"It'll be a tough time for him, but there are a lot of people there that have his back and I know for sure that he'l be back better and stronger."

Hosting the Sea Eagles at Cbus Super Stadium, new Titans recruit Kieran Foran is a chance of missing the clash due to a slight hamstring niggle, and given the playmaker's talents, Jolliffe knows it will be a big advantage if he is missing.

"As long as he's alright for next year... they should keep him on ice till the end of the season and then get him up there," Jolliffe joked.

"We're looking forward to having him here. It's obviously disappointing for him (if he does miss games) because he probably wants to finish off well for Manly. He's such a leader in that team.

"He does really well for them, so [if he is missing], it's a positive for us and hopefully we can just do a good job out there."
