Queensland's most successful Origin coach Mal Meninga has urged Queenslanders to get behind the Titans tomorrow night and turn Suncorp Stadium into an Origin-like cauldron for the Sydney Roosters in their Telstra Premiership Preliminary Final. <br><br> The two-time Canberra premiership-winning captain said that after watching his beloved Raiders bow out of contention last Friday night in their Semi-Final loss to the Tigers, he was happy to get behind the only Queensland team left in the Premiership race. <br><br> "The Titans will have a tough battle with the Roosters but they have a great coach who has been there before as a player; and they have speed; and experienced players in key positions. <br><br> "They will be the sentimental favourites. Certainly since the Broncos and Cowboys bowed out, the Titans have been on the tip of everyone's tongues in Queensland. I would definitely urge all Queenslanders to get behind them Origin-style." <br><br> Meninga, who led the Raiders to their first Grand Final victory in 1989 and again in 1990, joked that he could be banned from future important Raiders games. <br><br> "I think I am a bad luck charm for them," he said. "I went to four games this year and they lost all of them." <br><br> Meninga is on his way to Cairns today to prepare the Prime Minister's XIII side for their clash with the Kumuls in Papua New Guinea on Sunday.
