Titans victory vital: Prince

Relieved Gold Coast skipper Scott Prince has praised his team following Saturday’s shock victory over premiers Manly.

The result is just the second victory of the season for the beleaguered Titans, who currently hold the NRL‘s wooden spoon after finishing last in 2011.

For Skipper Prince, who contributed eight points in the 26-14 victory, getting a win on the board was crucial.

“We needed to win – it didn’t matter who we played tonight,” said Prince.

“To come down here to Brookvale, it doesn’t matter who they put on the park, it’s always tough to walk away with a win here.”

Wingers David Mead and Kevin Gordon laid on a try each, after both returning from time on the sidelines.

“Kevin was always going to take a little bit of time coming back from his knee injury, he did some good things out there, and Mead is hungry for the ball, I had to tell him to get back to his wing a couple of times, he’s over eager,” said Prince.

“They seem to be able to pluck a try out of the air at any stage, they’re very good finishers.

“The boys are going really well at the back.”

Prince was instrumental in two of the Titans’ tries, putting Jamal Idris through a gap in the first half and providing the pin-point kick for David Mead to collect and score after the break.

But the Australia and Queensland Origin representative was modest about his own performance, saying: “I was just out there doing a job. All I have to worry about is my preparation, and I’m very happy just to walk away with the win. I’m just trying to do my job for the team.”
