'Future Titan' Watch

This weekend will see 'future Titan' Tino Fa'asuamaleaui play his final game for Melbourne before joining the Gold Coast Titans for season 2021 - with an Origin stint likely in between.

For Titans fans looking for a reason to throw their support one way or another this weekend, the big Queenslander might be enough of a reason.

In a breakout season Fa'asuamaleaui has been one of the big improvers and consistently provided impact off the bench for the Melbourne Storm.

In the preliminary final against the Canberra Raiders he played 44 minutes, making 25 tackles and 70 metres.

In the NRL Grand Final his role is likely to be similar - to keep the early Storm momentum as he and the dynamic, Brandon Smith come on during the back part of the first half.

Future Titan: Tino Fa'asuamaleaui 

Melbourne Storm v Penrith Panthers

Sunday 25 October, 6:30PM (Qld time) | ANZ Stadium

Melbourne and Penrith will meet in the 2020 Telstra Premiership decider having been the two best teams all year, finishing second and first respectively.

All eyes are on Storm captain Cameron Smith. Will he retire after a peerless 430 matches across 19 seasons?

He's given nothing away despite the intense interest, but the scenes at Suncorp Stadium after Melbourne's preliminary final win over Canberra were perhaps indicative of a man bidding farewell.

The Panthers are shooting for 18 straight victories, led by star halfback Nathan Cleary and his father, coach Ivan.

Penrith are conceding vast experience to the Storm, but they're yet to be overawed as belief courses through them.

The last time the Panthers played in a grand final was 2003, when they collected the club's second title, while Melbourne have now made four of the past five deciders, losing in 2016 and 2018 and tasting success in 2017.

There may not be any current Titans playing in the Grand Final, but many fans will watch (and cheer) on with interest to see a glimpse of what 2021 has in store on the Gold Coast.
