Kelly looking to purr against Panthers

Brian Kelly is under no illusions how difficult the challenge will be against the defending premiers, but the Titans centre says it's a challenge that his team is ready to take head on.

Back home at Cbus Super Stadium in front of another super-charged crowd, Kelly says the Gold Coast side will need to rebound fast after a disappointing result against the Sharks last week.

"That first 15-20 minutes we've got to come prepared and rip in from the get go," Kelly said.

"At home we always put in a bit extra. 

"I remember that Panthers game last year, we had a good first half and they just got us towards the back end of that second half.

"We just have to go and focus on ourselves and rip in on the weekend."

Kelly says the despite the result in Cronulla, the side was boosted by the re-signings of David Fifita and Tino Fa'asuamaleaui.

"It was a disappointing result, but for the future of the Titans it's great news," Kelly said.

The 27-year-old has secured his own future and says he's excited for what is building at the club.

"I was just sort of trying to get to the end of the year and then sort out the contract then, but my managers were able to take care of that which was good.

"I'm happy I'm staying here for another three years and for my kids at home to be close to them it's happy days.

"Having Tino and Dave as well it's good, some big fellas that I can go off the back of.

"You look around and there isn't that many old fellas in the team so it is going to take a bit of time to build.

"I feel like the club is headed in the right direction and I'm excited by the future."
