KP faces the purple
For the first time since leaving the Club, Kevin Proctor will line up against Melbourne Storm. Proctor played 179 games and scored 28 tries when he wore the purple jersey from 2008-2016. He did not play in last year's Brisbane Double Header, making this the first time the frizzy-haired second rower will face his former teammates, many of which he has built lifelong friendships with. He will also go head-to-head with the man who replaced him in the No.11, Felise Kaufusi.
Titans ring the changes
Titans coach Garth Brennan has not been afraid to ring the changes in the hopes of overturning his side's four game losing streak. A total of five new faces have been brought in for the Gold Coast. New recruit Brenko Lee will make his debut for the Club while Alexander Brimson will play his first game in first grade. Experienced campaigner Dale Copley also returns from injury in a reshuffled line up that will be throwing different things at Melbourne to what the NRL has seen over the last month.

The happy hunting ground
When you win nine of your last 10 games at a venue you can safely call it a home away from home. However that record becomes somewhat less reassuring when you go up against the only team to beat you at Suncorp Stadium over that stretch. The Titans triumphed in the Brisbane Double Header last year in an absolute thriller. Storm will be back for redemption and solidify their home away from home. Just three weeks ago they flexed their muscle at Suncorp, defeating the Broncos 34-20.
Two for one delights
This will be the third instalment of the showpiece event with Storm hosting the Gold Coast Titans in the opening game at 5.30pm at Suncorp Stadium before the Brisbane Broncos clash against the Manly Sea Eagles at 7.35pm. Sports fans in Brisbane will be treated to two high quality matches, back-to-back on the one night with the event also celebrating the NRL's Indigenous Round.
