Tyrone Peachey is a massive fan of the NRL's new rules in 2021, mainly because he says they play to his strengths.

After finishing 2020 in the #13 jersey, Peachey reverted to the bench for the Titans opening games this season but has won back his preferred position at lock.

The 29-year-old says he is enjoying the role Justin Holbrook has him playing and he's keen to build on his form - starting this week in the Macca's Local Derby against the Brisbane Broncos. 

"I was pretty disappointed at the start of the year and I had to prove to the coach that I was worth it." Peachey said.

"He gave me the opportunity and now it is just my job to keep it and not stuff up I suppose.

"The way the game is going it has kind of opened it up for myself and the little blokes so it has been a fun year so far.

"Hopefully we can get a few more wins and do something special towards the end of the year."

The Titans will be looking to make it four wins in a row against the Broncos when the two sides meet at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

Peachey says the Gold Coast side won't be taking Brisbane lightly, knowing that ladder position matters little when these two sides meet.

"We've been there, I've been involved in the Club when we got the wooden spoon," Peachey said.

"This game is different, it is the local derby and everyone gets up for it and the crowd is going to be big.

"They're not that far off I think, they've got some good players ... they're not going that bad but we've just got to worry about ourselves and try and defend better.

"They're always good games and hopefully there is a big crowd and we can come away with the win."

Peachey is expecting his Indigenous All Stars and Titans team-mate David Fifita to continue his strong run of form against his old side.

"I'm that happy to see him (Fifita) play the way he is," he said.

"He has carried our team some weeks but it is all due to his training off the field and he practices that stuff at training so we're not that surprised that he is doing it on the weekends."
