Taylor urges fans to back Titans in Toowoomba

RUGBY LEAGUE: Ashley Taylor wants to see a sold out Clive Berghofer Stadium when the Gold Coast Titans bring the NRL to Toowoomba next month.

Tickets for the match go on sale tomorrow and Taylor said he is excited to be returning home to where he began his league career as a Brothers junior.

"It's a massive game for us - we need every win we can get,” Taylor said.

"We just want the Toowoomba region to get around us, even if you're not supporting our team, if you're just a local NRL fan it'll be good to watch a game live.”

With the Titans recently introducing heavy contact drills to their training sessions Taylor said the team is now focusing on the season ahead.

"It's awesome to know that footy is just around the corner - it's a long three months for us,” he said.

"But we're building as a team and looking in good shape we just need to go out on the field and prove it to the rest of the competition.”

The Titans first chance to prove themselves in 2018 will come this Saturday in Toowoomba against the Brisbane Broncos.

"It's going to be a big match for us - we've been training all pre-season for it,” he said.

"It's all guns blazing now and it's going to be an exciting match.”

Personally the Titans halfback said he was feeling in great shape ahead of the 2018 season.

"I feel good, I lost a few kilos after Christmas and I'm just trying to train harder now and be the best player I can be,” Taylor said.

"That's what I'll bring when the season starts and I'm looking forward to playing some footy again and wearing the Titans.”

League fans are urged to get in quick to secure a ticket tomorrow with the March 25 match against the St George Illawarra Dragons expected to be a sell-out.
