Marzhew to wreak havoc in the middle

The beast is set to be unleashed in a new role when the Titans face off against the Sea Eagles this Sunday.

Expected to come off the bench, the metre-eating machine Greg Marzhew will likely become an honorary member of the front rowers' union when he's injected into the game at Cbus Super Stadium.

Hoping to emulate the role players like Ruben Wiki did previously and nowadays Siosifa Talakai at the Cronulla Sharks, it's hoped the 25-year-old will transfer his immense power and strength in a handy burst for Justin Holbrook.  

In his 21 first grade games, the Titans' talented flyer has never left the flank, but is excited at the challenge that beckons of being in the middle.

"It's a big jump going from wing to the middle, so I've just been able to get my reps in when I can during training," Marzhew said.

"If Patty [Herbert] can pull through and start on the wing (after overcoming an injury), I'll definitely come off the bench.

"It can sometimes get boring on the wing just waiting for the ball to come, so I think it'd be a bit more exciting just being more involved."

Training all week in the middle, the only difference for Marzhew has been learning the new positioning and work rate.

"It's just been trying to find the mechanics in the position," Marzhew said.

"There's just different movements that you have to try and get under wraps and then try to find a rest when you can.

"In the middle... there's no time for resting there. It's just more trying to get the positioning right with everything."

Also excited to be back at home this weekend, Marzhew is hoping his side can lift with a vocal Gold Coast crowd showing their support.

"I've said time and time again, we want to make our family and our community proud," Marzhew said.

"Fingers crossed we can put in a performance that we're capable of doing."
