The Storm and the Titans meet on the Sunshine Coast as round 10 of the 2020 NRL season continues this Friday night.

Both teams enter the Friday night contest full of confidence after single figure victories against the Raiders and Warriors respectively.

The Storm has dominated this fixture in the past, but after a confidence-building win last week would it be foolish to write off the Titans?
