Last time the Titans met the Rabbitohs, it was South Sydney who took the win with a big second half.

Titans Coach Justin Holbrook says that feels like a long time ago, and says he's pleased with how far his side has come since the ANZAC day clash.

"That was a long time ago now, but I think we pushed them all the way to the end in that game," Holbrook said.

"What hurt us is we lost KP (Proctor) and Patty Herbert in the first half and then were shuffling our team around.

"One thing we learnt in that game is that if you get on top of Souths you better stay there because if they get an opportunity then they can hit straight back."

Match Highlights

Holbrook says his side is continuing to improve and expects a strong performance against the Rabbitohs.

"We've worked really hard on not just our defence but the way the game is refereed and how the momentum goes," he said.

"We've done a good job lately but we will get tested a lot tomorrow.

"I think we've been a lot clearer in how we want to play in attack and defence.

"We are understanding each others game and we've got a bit of stability in positions now and a lot more trust in our defence.

"That's been our biggest improvement and that is why we have been a bit more consistent in those last five games.

"We're stepping up against South Sydney tomorrow so we've got to keep improving and we know where we sit on the ladder so we've got to do our best to keep the wins coming."

The Titans will line up as named earlier this week, chasing four straight wins.

With finals in sight, Holbrook says there isn't any extra buzz around the club with both players and coaches realising there is still work to do.

"We know the opportunity is there but I don't know if there is an extra buzz around because we all know what is in front of us.

"There are a lot of big games over the next four weeks for us to get there and I'm happy with that.

"Early in the year we had some good wins and I wouldn't say celebrated but we let that affect us going into games but the last four or five weeks we've really understood that we've got to get the wins, put them behind us and move on.

"We're looking forward to playing which is really important but they are pretty grounded the playing group now which is good.

"We know how good Souths are, they are a terrific side and they are up in the top three for a reason.

"If we want to play finals, we need to knock some of these big sides off.

"We get a good opportunity tomorrow and if we play well, I think we can do that but we need to step it up that's for sure."
