Storm five-eighth says Saturday's trip to Napier is an exciting one for the Club and especially Hawkes Bay local Tohu Harris.

Harris will get the opportunity to play in front of family and friends he grew up with in his hometown when Storm face the Dragons at McLean Park, Napier. On Tuesday, Green explained the significance of the match for Harris and Storm.

"It's an exciting trip for us, to go back to where Tohu grew up, his hometown," Green said.

"He had a chat to the team this morning and spoke about what it means to his village and for his people to be able to see an NRL team live.

Be there when Storm take on the Titans in Round 22, Sunday 9 August at AAMI Park! Tickets here.

"Their people are extremely proud of where they are from and extremely proud of him.

"Not all of them are going to have the opportunity to come over to Melbourne and see him play live so for him to go back and do that in front of his family it's a special time for him.

The match itself in Napier also looms as a crucial one for Melbourne who will be looking to build on their Round 19 win over the Panthers and secure back-to-back wins to stay ahead of the congested middle third of the NRL table.

"It's important we back up what we did on Friday night and produce the same sort of effort and get back to back wins," Green said.

"Our mentality in the game (last week) was really strong, I thought the way we started the game was really good.

"We just went hard from the start and maintained that for the full 80 minutes."
