Liu ready for clash of the big boys when Titans tackle Storm

Isaac Liu knows the Melbourne Storm have undoubtedly one of the most superior forward packs in the NRL.

With the likes of Jesse and Kenny Bromwich, Felise Kaufusi and Nelson Asofa-Solomona part of their starting rotation, it's important the Titans muscle up for the clash of the big men, who always have been crucial to the success of the competition heavyweights.

But the experienced middle third is ready for the challenge the fourth-placed premiership contenders will bring at AAMI Park on Friday evening, hoping to snap the recent string of losses.

"For us, it's a good challenge," Liu said.

"You can see the pack they have and the team they have, so for us it's another good game and a challenge for not only our pack, but our whole side."

Finding an extra gear against some of the top teams this season - including troubling Parramatta in the season opener and Penrith in Round 8 - the 221-game prop has his eyes set on going one better than those performances and taking home the much-needed two points.

"Hopefully we can go even better [than those performances]," Liu said.

"We just need to fix up a few errors and our defence, which is what we're looking forward to.

"It just comes back to us making sure we get those things right from last week and the previous weeks, make sure we execute our roles and not give away too many penalties to play our footy."

Breaking a four-game losing streak with a 24-12 win over the Warriors, Liu knows their past five weeks have been up and down, but is cautious given their good win in New Zealand last start.

"It hasn't been the Melbourne I'm used to watching, but it was good for them that they did bounce back," Liu said.

"They'll be looking for another win, but hopefully for us, we'll go there and make it challenging."

Kick-off is at 6pm on Friday, August 5.
