Storm skipper Cameron Smith says his side needs to quickly turnaround their defensive attitude and performance following Friday night's loss to Wests Tigers.

Melbourne conceded six tries in 60 minutes in Round 21 which played a major part in their defeat at Leichhardt Oval.

"We will be doing a little bit of defence given that we conceded 34 points," Smith said. 

"It's the most points we've conceded all season against any team.

"That was the most disappointing part of our game, so we're doing a fair bit of work today on that.

"It's just a bit frustrating given we were so good in the previous two weeks. It's something we need to fix up."

Talking points

Smith on Matt Duffie
"It's certainly a credit to him getting back to first-grade after what he's been through."

"All the boys were extremely happy for him to get back and it's a good sign of resilience and determination to try and get back from where he came from."

Smith on the shoulder charge
"It's pretty clear cut for me, it's got no place in the game anymore."

Smith on the Titans
"I did watch their game last night and I thought they were pretty good, particularly Aiden Sezer. He was fairly dynamic, he had a lot of say in the result last night."
