Foran's focus on getting results and playing good footy

With 274 games of NRL experience under his belt, Kieran Foran has seen most things in the game.

The 32-year-old says while he understands why the playing squad are being asked about a mid-season change of coach, he knows the focus has to be on playing good football to finish the season.

"We're paid to play rugby league, we don't make decisions, our job is to get results and play footy and that's what we've got to do and that is all we are focusing on at the moment," he said.

"For these young guys that maybe haven't experienced anything like that it can take an even bigger toll, so we're just getting around one another at the moment.

"Everyone has been positive and at the end of the day we are just focusing on results.  That is our job and that is what we've got to do.

"It's a big one for us this weekend."

The Titans will take on the Dolphins and will looking to put in a full 80-minute performance after squandering a lead against the competitions newest side earlier in the season.

"We're focusing on getting results for the club, that is our job and we are turning our attention to the Dolphins this weekend and we will be doing everything we can to represent the Gold Coast Titans well," Foran said.

The Titans will have some fresh faces on show at Cbus Super Stadium, with AJ Brimson, David Fifita, Moeaki Fotuaika and captain Tino Fa'asuamaleaui missing through Origin duty.

Jacob Alick will make his NRL debut, with a host of young players given the opportunity to step up.

"You can't replace those four boys, they've all been playing outstanding footy for us and they are reaping the rewards in getting selected for Queensland," Foran said.

"The guys that step in will have to jump up and do a good job for us and us other guys that are more senior players will have to play above and beyond what we've been playing.

"It's going to take a mighty effort but I'm confident we can do it and we've shown this season that we can respond in games like this and I think we will be right."

Speaking of confidence, Foran says he has that in spades when it comes to his halves partner Tanah Boyd.

He says Boyd is improving every week as he tackles his first full season in the number seven jersey.

"I think he is coping fine, he is a bloke that doesn't take too much on and he is confident in his own ability and what he needs to do to improve as an NRL halfback.

"You've seen in his game this year I think he has gotten better and better as the year has gone on.

"For a young guy that is in his first season as an NRL halfback I think he is doing a great job at steering the side around and getting his kicking game in order and getting it right.

"He is the first one to admit that he has got yards of improvement in him ... but I think he has got a huge future. "
