'Enjoying the challenge': Campbell embracing halves switch

Jayden Campbell has continued to welcome his switch to the Titans' No. 6 jersey despite a fortnight of disappointing results since returning from injury.

A damaging self-inflicted error count cost the Gold Coast the two-points against the Tigers, now placing them in a tough position as they sit on back-to-back losses after the bye.

But even with the poor scoreboard performances, the Titans star is determined to keep developing his skills alongside fellow half Kieran Foran and the club's coaching staff - which consists of three former playmakers in Des Hasler, Michael Monaghan and Brad Davis.

"It was my third game there [at five-eighth]," Campbell said.

"I’ve still got a lot to learn, but I am enjoying the challenge and just hoping to get better each week and keep learning off Foz and the coaching staff, but I am enjoying it.

"[Foran] is tough, but he’s been around a long time, so I just keep asking him questions and keep learning off him."

Press conference: Round 15 v Tigers

The playing group have spent the week asking tough questions of themselves after poor discipline and countless errors against the Tigers saw them downed at Leichhardt Oval, despite being favourites to take home the two points.

"We pretty much just shot ourselves in the foot," the 24-year-old said.

"Just too many errors on either play one or play two. Even the leg-out penalties, that’s where we came undone."

Despite the low completion rate, there were sparks of optimistic performances across the park, Campbell feels the Titans can take away to fuel them towards a more consistent performance back at home against the Warriors on Saturday.

"We’re still trying to stay positive. We were rolling 80-90 metre sets, so we're trying to stay positive about that," he said.

"[The key to fixing the completion rate] is just holding the ball. The last few weeks we completed pretty high and then in the last two weeks we’ve been pretty poor, so it’s just about getting around our execution and fixing that up.

"We’re staying positive about our nine line breaks to two and getting up the field pretty easy, but we just got to fix the other stuff around that."

Having beat the Warriors the last time they met in Round 8 across the ditch, the home side know their opposition will be firing more than usual after a tough loss to the Storm last week.

"We know they’ve got a lot of supporters around here as well, and we’re expecting them to come out hard,” Campbell said.

"Playing at Cbus against anyone, you want to win, especially at home."
