Holbrook excited to see three Titans debutants perform

Titans Coach Justin Holbrook has confirmed that Erin Clark will move into the starting hooker role for this weekend's game with Mitch Rein dropping out of the team.

"He's (Rein) just had a sore shoulder and (Anthony) Donny has been a bit busted up as well so I wanted to bring in some fresh troops," Holbrook said.

"Erin (Clark) will play 9 which he has done anyway and Greggy Marzhew will get an opportunity which is another NRL debut for us.

"I'm excited for Greg, he is probably the strongest player in the NRL yet to play NRL.

"We've got to take fully fit guys into this weekends game."

Joe Vuna and Jayden Campbell are the other new faces who will make their Titans debut against the Storm this weekend.

"He's (Campbell) been terrific right through the pre-season and he has been playing fantastic for our feeder club Tweed (Seagulls).

"It's great for our club ... to have Preston our number one Titans player and then his young bloke follow in his footsteps but Jayden has earnt it himself.

"While it is great for our club and for his family and he's earnt it off his own performances.

"He is a natural fullback and a natural rugby league player.

"There's not much of him, people get excited and think they're going to be able to get hold of him but he is such a tough kid.

"He's skilful and plays with no fear and that's what we need this week, we've got a tough opposition and we've got to go there and put our bodies on the line."

Holbrook says the Titans are aware of the threats that the Storm possess but are also determined to improve their own performance after a loss to Cronulla last weekend.

"Their (Storm) main threats are Brandon Smith, Jahrome Hughes and Nicho Hynes is playing great and they've got a big forward pack so we know the strengths that they've got," Holbrook said.

"For me it is about our own performance, we were disappointed as a team and a club last week so we have to do ourselves proud tomorrow.

"For us, there are two teams that go our there and one wins.

"I mentioned to the boys after last weeks game, we could be playing touch footy all week for all anyone cares, once we run out tomorrow night (that's what people care about).

"We don't need to defend what we're doing at training, we need to defend how we are going to play and we've got to play better because that's what we're going to get judged on.

"It's performance, it is nothing else, it's not that we're training at the wrong time of day or we're doing this or we're doing that, we're confident what we're doing with the process and we've got a great coaching staff but it's how we play that we've got to get better at.

"Defending harder in tough times, that's what we haven't been good at so there's no point blaming anything else, we've got to blame ourselves and that's what we'll do."
