Past Cbus upset gives Titans faith Storm can be surged

Beau Fermor may have had a cheeky grin and joking about what to expect from the Storm this weekend, but the Titans forward knows the challenge that lies ahead at home.

Fresh from a gritty showing in New Zealand to claim their first win of the season against the Warriors, the 25-year-old is backing the recent performances from his teammates and the support from Gold Coast fans to help them get over the line to register back-to-back wins.

"[We're expecting] the Storm that always rock up," Fermor said.

"They’re always sitting first or second on the ladder and they’re up there for a reason. It’s because the difference between their best and worst performance isn’t very big.

"We’re going to have to make sure we are on top of our game this weekend, and in front of our fans at Cbus, I think that’s only going to help us.

"It’s definitely going to be a tough task, and they’re coming off a really good game on Anzac Day and they’ll be looking to come up here and keep that form going."

Gaining confidence from their 80-minute show of bravery in their own Anzac performance, the Titans are also finding strength in their 38-34 win against the Storm at Robina in 2023.

"I think when you’ve beaten a team the year before, it gives you confidence that you’ve done it before and belief that you can do it again," Fermor said.

"We get to play them at home and not in Melbourne, so that’s another advantage for us.

"Hopefully we get a good crowd out at Cbus this weekend to cheer us on, and hopefully we get the job done this weekend."

Coming up against the Storm on Saturday also presents a different kind of challenge for the Titans, with their elusive five-eighth Cameron Munster running out for his 200th NRL appearance - a party the Gold Coast will be hoping to spoil.

"To play 200 for this great club, I am pretty lucky," the milestone man said when speaking to Melbourne media about his achievement.

"I know there are blokes who have played a lot of games for this club, some big names like Cooper Cronk, Billy Slater and Cameron Smith; so to have 200 games and play alongside those three is very special for me and my family."
