'Mr Versatile' Liu proving his worth on the Coast

Approaching Round 13, Gold Coast Titans forward Isaac Liu has certainly been the club's Mr Versatile in the first half of the competition.

Starting the year in the front row, before injuries saw the 214-game veteran do an able job in the back-row, the 31-year-old is now set to wear the No. 13 jersey to capably fill a void left by inspirational captain Tino Fa'asuamaleaui who is away on Origin duties.

"He's a very passionate man, and it's going be a good challenge for us not having them there as forwards. But we've got plenty of forwards who will step up and lead the way there," Liu said.

"We've got to keep playing our footy, keep backing each other and keep working hard."

'We can't underestimate them' - Liu

Despite the Cowboys missing four of their top line stars to Maroons camp, Liu knows the contest will still be a big challenge at home despite the opposition being understrength.

"It's going to be a physical game and we're looking to improve on what we did last week, but we'll also take a bit of confidence from it as well," Liu said.

"We can't underestimate any other team. It doesn't matter who they bring in, they'll be ready to come.

"We just have to turn up and execute our plays in our the way we want to play so whoever's out there, we'll make sure we play to win."

The powerful forward is also looking forward to having Moeaki Fotuaika back from injury with plenty to prove after unfortunately missing out on Queensland selection.

"It's great to have Moey back. Unfortunately he didn't get picked, but he runs hard and tackles hard and it's great to have him back in the side," Liu said.

"He'll help create that momentum with our forwards, so it'll be exciting."
