    Always thought Nathan was a super talent and he started off very well earlier in the year when called up from MM even though he mainly played out of dummy half. One of our better young players, but make no mistake, losing Matt Beddow is not good

    Titans players still chasing NRL finals
    Ed Jackson | Sat 03rd August, 10:55am


    Luke Douglas is still optimistic about the Titans' chances of playing finals football this season

    Racked with injuries, hopelessly out of form and with games running out, things are looking anything but good for Gold Coast's 2013 NRL campaign.

    The Titans go into Sunday's second last home match against Wests Tigers on the back of a four-game losing run.

    Last weekend's 32-4 thumping by South Sydney has left them 11th on the ladder with just six rounds remaining.

    Adding to their woes, Luke Bailey (ankle), Albert Kelly (sternum) and Matt Srama (ankle) have joined a lengthy injury list that already includes fullback Will Zillman and centre Jamal Idris.

    It means back-rower Ashley Harrison has been moved to five-eighth against the Tigers while winger David Mead fills in at fullback.

    But despite all their woes, prop Luke Douglas had one simple answer when asked if finals were still on the player's agenda.

    "Definitely - we've got to win five out of six. That's going to be tough ... but we've shown we can match it with the best," Douglas told AAP.

    "We've just got to get it together and start getting that winning feeling back again."

    Douglas, who has played a remarkable 188 consecutive NRL matches since his debut for Cronulla in 2006, says the playing group at the Titans should be making the top eight.

    But if they are to realise that potential, they'll need to overcome a Tigers team whose lowly 15th position on the ladder doesn't reflect their ability in Douglas' opinion.

    "They're one of the teams that have got a lot of strike players and, if Benji (Marshall) and the likes can fire, they're going to be hard to handle," he said.

    "We've got to come out, play physical with them - try to shut down Robbie Farah.

    "We've got the personnel to be playing finals. We just played ordinary against the Knights and Panthers. Put it together a little bit better against Manly, although the scoreboard didn't show it.

    "Last week wasn't acceptable, getting beaten up the middle like we did. We've had a big week at training and hopefully we can put it together."

    Gilbert: Captains must right Titans ship
    Tim Gilbert | August 2 2013, 02:23pm

    COMETH the hour, cometh the man -- it may be a cliche but the players of the Gold Coast Titans need to live it this weekend.

    It is getting desperate. One more loss here against the Tigers and it is curtains for 2013.

    The harsh reality is if the team don't make the finals, this season will be looked on as a failure or, at the very least, one that got away.

    When post-mortem reports are written, no one really cares if there were injuries or whether the team struggled in the Origin period.

    It will be that you either had a good year or a bad one.

    Coach John Cartwright must look at the table position of his team now and think "how did we get here".

    The first half of the season was so full of promise.

    Albert Kelly had turned his life around and, along with Aidan Sezer, was steering the side beautifully.

    The Titans were beating some of the Broadway acts of the competition. Co-captains Nate Myles and Greg Bird were heralded as great success stories.

    Many in the game were looking at Carty and saying all the hard work he'd done over the past seven years had paid off and this was the Titans team to really give it a shake.

    It is said that winners have parties and losers have meetings.

    One of the big yarns over the past couple of weeks has been a so-called emergency meeting with Cartwright and the boss. But this season is not lost. Their backs are to the wall but this footy side need to push off and burst again over the last few rounds.

    Bird must grab each game by the scruff of the neck. He is one of the best players in the competition but he needs someone on his shoulder when he breaks the line.

    Myles will make ground and work harder than most players, but he also needs to step up another level in the club's hour of need.

    Dave Taylor has had a poor year but he can change that by playing every game until the end of the season like he did against the Cowboys at Skilled Park. You will remember the Sunday afternoon game: he wasn't expected to play, he had a leg injury and limped for most of the match. But he was at his wrecking- ball best, his team notched a good win and he took away the Channel 9 man-of-the-match award.

    I have said it before and I will say it again: he is the most awesome mix of size and agility -- one in a million -- and he can go a long way to restoring his reputation in the game with a big few weeks.

    It is also a time for a guy like Ryan James to unleash his true potential. He is a big body who is smart and has plenty of ability.

    From a team's point of view, whoever is in the 17 has to take pride in the statistics.

    Most importantly is the missed tackle column. Any team that has had continued success has really hurt when their line was broken.

    This needs to be in the psychology of the Titans for the rest of the season. The desperation on the ladder needs to be replicated in the middle.

    Each player has to want to be the one who stops a certain try or pulls off an inspirational tackle.

    The Titans this week need to stand up and play for their teammates. They have to want to have success for their coach and most of all play for themselves.

    Winning is momentum and it is infectious. Who knows -- victory over the Tigers could kick-start the Titans into a good run of form and a charge towards the finals.

    Give them strength!
