No-nonsense Liu focussed on defensive pressure

Isaac Liu epitomises a player every team needs... a hard-running, no-nonsense forward who prioritises defensive pressure.

The former Rooster with 207 games under his belt has been a perfect pick-up for the Titans, providing plenty of experience in the middle-third, coming from a system that prioritises effort, especially in defence.

Facing Manly this weekend at 4 Pines Park, there has been plenty of external chatter around how to stop Daly Cherry-Evans' lethal kicking game, but the Gold Coast hard man said the team's focus has primarily been on themselves.

"It's definitely going be a tough game, but for us, we just have to focus on ourselves," Liu said.

"Fixing up those little details in our defence and also in our attack, and not give away too many errors and penalties."

With the Eels making nearly 500 more metres than the Titans in last Saturday's clash, a particular emphasis has been placed on line-speed ahead of the Sea Eagles clash.

"We have to focus on inside pressures and details within defence including getting off the line. Especially giving pressure towards Manly and their forwards because they like to ball-play," Liu said.

The side has been motivated to get the win by plenty of fans making the trek down to Park this week, spending their Easter school holidays watching their home team train ahead of the Round 6 change.

"It's been a really good change," Liu said.

"We don't really have many fans out here that often, but it's good to see the kids out here, getting out and about seeing the place."
