Kevin Proctor and Viliame Kikau are at opposite ends of their rugby league journeys, but their importance for their respective sides can’t be underestimated.
On one side you have the man with the raspy voice who leads with actions rather than words. The returning captain of the Titans in Proctor, ready to add much needed steel to the forward pack
On the other is a man-mountain who has been terrorising opposition defences since he joined the NRL in 2017.
Kikau has formed a lethal combination with Panthers halfback, Nathan Cleary and his power running game has made the Fijian a dangerous weapon on the Panthers left edge.
Proctor is man hardened by the school of Melbourne Storm and 24 Test Matches for the New Zealand Kiwis.
Kikau has the big runs, Proctor the consistency and reliability.
One thing is for sure, whichever team comes out the victor on Sunday at Cbus Super Stadium, one of these men will play a key role.
