JOHANNESBURG - Unlimited Titans vice-captain Jacques Rudolph is confident his team will be boosted by their home fans when they take on the Cape Cobras in Centurion on Thursday.

The Titans return to their home ground after a disappointing opening round where they lost to the Dolphins.

Rudolph says it's nice to return to Supersport Park.

"We had a layoff of about 10 days before we started down in the Cape. Unfortunately we weren't on the winning team there but it's nice for us to be back at our home ground. We're going to face a strong Cobras team, but we know what we're capable of as well."

Rudolph says the team needs to turn things around because an early start is important to succeed in a competition like this.

"Looking back at the Momentum Cup where we ended up sharing the trophy, we started off in the same kind of manner. It took us quite some time to actually get into the campaign, and I think it will be vital for us to make a good early start in the game tomorrow to try to gather some early momentum to take through."
