Footy the focus for Foran ahead of derby

Titans skipper Kieran Foran has the North Queensland Cowboys in his sights, with the veteran mentor keen to convert his sides strong run of form into victory come Sunday. 

"We are getting on with business as usual at the moment and preparing for the Cowboys," Foran said. 

"The reality is that we are here to do a job and that is what we are doing."

Foran's Titans side has had month of football that could have easily resulted in more than the single victory, but Foran knows his side is heading in the right direction ahead of the XXXX Derby with the Cowboys.

"You'd be naive to think we haven't improved dramatically," he said.

"I know the results don't show that just yet but I think if you know your footy, that we are heading in the right direction and sooner or later it is going to click and when it does we are in for quite a few exciting period.

"I have said this a few times but it doesn't happen overnight and we are building.

"Every club would love to be up the top and winning games but I can guarantee you that they all started somewhere as well and had to forge their way and have a few years to find their DNA and what worked for them.

"A club like Penrith have enjoyed the success of that journey in the last four or five years and it is what I see happening here."

It is no coincidence that the Titans run of form has come with an uptick in the veteran's performance and a return closer to the action in the number seven jersey. 

With injuries to fullback Jayden Campbell and now halves partner Tanah Boyd, Foran said it has been unfortunate but his side is up for the challenge that change brings, which has ultimately unlocked AJ Brimson. 

"It has been tough, it has been really unfortunate for us as that we have had a lot of movement and injuries stuff that has been out of our control with our spine and that has been difficult, but I think we are enjoying the challenge and it is what we have prepared for and we are up for it," he said.

"His form (Brimson) has been sublime, so hopefully he can keep that up for us and if he keeps playing like that we are going to be in more games than not.

"AJ's such an exceptional player and he can play a number of positions really well and obviously we started him at centre and through injury we have moved him to the fullback role he is so accustomed to and he has been our best player the last month, so it would be nice to hold him there and then I guess moving forward that will be a decision for Des to make.
