The NRL's newest neighbours will square off, with the Storm welcoming the Titans to their temporary home on the Sunshine Coast.
What would have been a 1700km trip to the Victoria capital is now a 180km bus trip for a Titans side chasing an upset.
Gold Coast displayed impressive perseverance to turn a 12-0 deficit into a 16-12 win over the Warriors last weekend while the Storm did what they do best and ground out another victory.
Match: Storm v Titans
Round 10 -
Venue: Sunshine Coast Stadium, Sunshine Coast

Star five-eighth Cameron Munster returns in place of Ryley Jacks. Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy on Thursday said Munster's knee had healed quickly and he was on track to make an early comeback.

Jacks and Darryn Schonig were omitted from the reserves 24 hours before kick-off.
Titans: The Titans are 1-17. Brian Kelly (quad) and Phillip Sami (shoulder) return in the centres with Beau Fermor returning to the second row and Bryce Cartwright and Sam Stone out of the side. The Titans are chasing back-to-back wins for the first time since April 2019.

Anthony Don v Josh Addo-Carr: In a battle of contrasting styles, the leaping ability and power of Don will come up against the blinding speed and elusiveness of Addo-Carr. Don will like his chances at gathering in attacking kicks, while Addo-Carr will be seeking one-on-one opportunities.
Titans utility player Tyrone Peachey was back to his electric best in the win over the Warriors. He ran for 155m and made 33 tackles in his 54 minutes on the field. The Titans will need more of the same against the Storm.
