Justin Holbrook isn't planning on pulling a rabbit out of his hat, but he does have a few tricks up his sleeve as the Titans prepare for a Magic Round clash against the Panthers.

The Titans Coach knows that it'll be a tough test for his side against the competition leaders, but he sees the game as an opportunity to make a statement.

"It's a great opportunity for us," Holbrook said.

"Nobody has been able to beat them this year so we get an opportunity.

"I'm confident, we know it is as big of a task as we can get ... but if we can put it all together on the night, we're going to have to play 80 minutes, and I'm confident we can win."

Penrith are undefeated in 2021 and have been the form team of the last two seasons.

Holbrook says while their attack gets a lot of attention, they have built a really strong defence that's helping them win games.

"I think they are probably better at that (defence) than their attack.

"They're only averaging just over 6 points a game so they're doing a pretty fair job there.

"They are such a well organised side in both attack and defence and we're going to have to play better than what we have this year if we are going to win.

"They're so well organised with and without the ball and they've had those combinations for a few years and they know each others game."

Despite letting in some late points against the Tigers, Holbrook says he was pleased to notch another win, with the result keeping the Titans in the NRL's top eight after nine rounds.

"I thought we were really in control at 36-12 and a couple of things didn't go our way and it led to one or two tries and it made it harder at the finish.

"The important thing is that we won it.

"We'd lost three in a row and we all knew that so it was important that we won and it would have been terrific to win 42-12 or 36-12 but it wasn't to be and the main thing was we got the win."
