Nothing is more dangerous in rugby league than a side with its back to the wall.

That was proven last week when the Titans shunned the pre-season doubters to steamroll the Knights in Round 1 for a 30-12 win.

Back in Melbourne, Craig Bellamy watched the performance and saw enough to make him realise Sunday’s clash will be far from a walk in the park.

“They were pretty impressive, they put a fair few points on Newcastle and to do it in the conditions, it was quite wet up there especially in the second half,” Bellamy said.

Be at AAMI Park when Storm take on the Titans on Sunday 13 March.

“They are a very energetic team, an enthusiastic team and I think that all the critics who wrote them off earlier in the year would be probably looking to take their words back at the moment.

“They are going along really well and they should be proud the way they are going. We know it is going to be one hell of a challenge for us.”

Consistency rather than complacency is the c-word echoing around AAMI Park this week.

The playing group is keen to bring their best week in and week out, something the master tactician admits they failed to do last year despite securing a top-four finish.

“With some of our ups and down from last year there is no room for complacency. If you’re going to get complacent with the Titans and how they are playing you are going to get hurt.

“As soon as you switch off, especially in this competition, someone is going to burn you.

“(The Titans) always give us a tough struggle here to be quite honest… they seem to enjoy coming down here for whatever reason.”

Kids come free for this Sunday’s game at AAMI Park so be sure to bring the family along and support the boys. Kickoff at 6.30pm.
