Titans co-captain Jamal Fogarty believes a "horrible" video review and short turnaround will help the side rebound from last week’s "reality check" loss to Manly.
The Titans can’t dwell on the 36-0 thrashing from the Sea Eagles for too long as they’ve got a huge test against Wayne Bennett’s Rabbitohs - a side riding a five-game winning streak into Cbus Super Stadium on Friday.
Gold Coast coach Justin Holbrook made his players sit through an uncomfortable video review session on Monday but Fogarty walked out confident his team would learn a lesson from the poor performance in Mudgee.
"It’s a good reality check for us, especially coming up against Souths this week. We have a short turnaround so we don’t have to dwell on it long," Fogarty said.
"It was good to come in today, get our review done, get the hard part of that which was sitting in the video watching the horrible clips we showed on the weekend but in saying that there was some good clips in there that gives us some positivity moving forward as well.
Magic Round: One month to go
"That is part of rugby league, you either win or you learn.
"On the weekend we definitely learned something about ourselves, we’ve got to put in hard work during the week and roll out on game day and make things happen.
"We can’t think things are going to happen easily for us. We have hard work to do this week and continue that hard work for the rest of the season.
Which team do you love to beat the most?
"It’s all about consistency for us, we can’t have one or two games and think we’re going alright. We’ve got to reset each week and make sure we’re doing the little things at home and at training to perform at our best.
"What we put together was pretty poor, they just had more intent and purpose with and without the ball.
"Everyone was just that one or two per cent off on the weekend and it showed."
The Titans will be forced to make at least one change this week with front-rower Tino Fa'asuamaleaui on Monday accepting a two-week ban for a shoulder charge.
Winger Anthony Don is a chance to return after missing two games with a hip injury.
Fogarty said all the players had been put on notice after the defeat that Holbrook is prepared to make changes if they don’t fix the attitude that cost them dearly against the Sea Eagles.
"For us, it’s about trying to get rid of [any complacency] and making sure we are earning our jersey every week," Fogarty said.
