You'd expect these two to be Queensland Origin team-mates for the next decade.
Both Tino Fa'asuamaleaui and Patrick Carrigan were included in the Maroons squad for the first time in 2020, with Fa'asuamaleaui going on to play in all three games on the way to a series victory.
On Friday night, any friendships built around their state will be put aside as the two go head to head in the Macca's Local Derby.
Fa'asuamaleaui will again be a key cog for the Titans pack.
149 running metres and 32 tackles in round one against the Warriors showed the work rate of the Titans lock.
He was in everything in his Titans debut, albeit in a losing side.
He'll be looking to for a victory this Friday, his first in front of the Titans Legion at Cbus Super Stadium.
Carrigan also had a good start to 2021, the Broncos lock recording some incredible numbers in his side's first up loss to Parramatta.
23-year-old punched out 171 running metres and 47 tackles as he again led from the front.
Two of the most influential players in their respective sides, both Fa'asuamaleaui and Carrigan will be looking for a derby win when the come head-to-head at Cbus Super Stadium on Friday night.
