For the second year running the Titans have earnt a home semi-final, this year facing the New Zealand Warriors.

In Mat Rogers’ final home-and-away game against Tigers he did not disappoint, scoring the field goal that brought Titans to a 13-0 half-time lead.

But they’ll have to work hard this week.

Matt Rogers, Titans Veteran: “The Warriors are a big side they’re going to be ready to play, we’re going to have to be ready as well.”

The retiring dual international’s last finals campaign will be the driving force for Titans.

Can he finish his career with a premiership?

Matt Rogers, Titans Veteran: “That’s the goal every year the goal is to win one and this year is no different it’d be a nice way to go out.”

An AC joint injury sidelined Scott Prince midway through the opening stanza but he returned for the second half.

He’s not in doubt for Friday night.

Despite having a long list of injury concerns, the players are confident they can overcome the Warriors at home on Friday night.

Scott Prince, Titans Captain: “We’re a lot more focused, especially with some form behind us leading into the finals.”

The Titans have regained Preston Campbell from a hamstring injury for their qualifying final.
