Erin Clark says it is pretty straightforward what the Titans need to do to be able to beat the Melbourne Storm this weekend.

"Just make our tackles," Clark said.

"It's pretty simple."

Melbourne sit second on the competition ladder, while the Titans will be trying to climb back in to the NRL's top eight with victory on the Sunshine Coast.

Both sides will be missing players due to State of Origin, but the match will be a chance for some younger faces to shine.

Clark played 51 minutes in round 12, his biggest stint of the season and was able to impress despite the score line.

The 23-year-old ran for 107 metres, making four tackle break and also made 31 tackles (including a try-saver) in his time on-field against the Sharks.

Clark says there is fight in this Titans side and he says the players are determined to tighten their defence against the competition heavy weights.

"If you watch our training we give it to each other in the opposed sessions but it is just taking it onto the field.

"I know our defensive coaches get a lot of criticism after the weekend but at the end of the day last year we won five in a row with the exact same defence system.

"So people can go and bag the coaches but it is not them, it's us.

"We're going out there and putting in the performance so we've got to make it work.

"If we make our tackles our attack will take care of itself.

"We've got enough strike power in the team to score tries but you've got to stop them first."
