Next man up: The Titans mentality to aid growing casualty ward

The display of grit shown by the Titans in a game that was filled with injury-related casualties is being hailed by some as one of the gutsiest wins in club history.

But away from labels, what is left of the playing group is locked into the challenge ahead presented by the allure of Magic Round.

Titans hooker Chris Randall praised the gutsy effort shown by the team against the Cowboys, regardless of the roles players were tasked to fill.

"I feel like we were in control there for a fair chunk of the game and then boys started dropping," he said.

"I think Sam Verrills and I were in the halves there at one stage towards the back end, and Klese (Haas) was in the centres.

"We were just doing what we had to do and we held on and got the result."

With halves in short supply due to injuries, the 59-gamer is happy to play the role of ‘Mr Fix It’ if that is what the team needs - expecting to fill the void at five-eighth in the forced spine shake-up.

"If I’ve got a role in the team, I’ll do my job and I am happy," Randall said. 

“Whatever role I am given, I will just do my best; especially if it's in the halves as we’ve got Tanah Boyd and Tom Weaver out.

"Our depth is really being tested at the moment. We will just have to work hard and prepare as well as we can, train as best as we can to get the job done this weekend.

"We don’t need them [injured players] to defend well. We all know how to defend and we’ll just do our best and see what happens."

A former Knights player himself, Randall is eager for a rematch against his old team after falling short in last year’s matchup down in Newcastle.

"It’s always good to go up against your old side," he said.

"I’ve been messaging a few of the boys recently... they got us last year so that’s in the back of the mind.

"Hopefully we go one better this time."
