Due to Titans regular hooker Nathan Friend departure to the New Zealand Warriors, Srama took the void of playing at the position playing in 23 matches and scoring 4 tries for the Gold Coast Titans in the 2012 NRL season. On 21 October 2012, Srama played at five-eighth for the Philippines against Thailand, Srama scored a try and kicked 7 goals in their 86-0 win that saw the team crowned the inaugural Rugby League Asian Cup champions.[9]
