Storm forward Kenny Bromwich says the deft grubber that set up team-mate Justin Olam's first NRL try on Saturday isn't something fans should expect to be a regular occurrence.

As a Storm side that will be without five Origin stars prepares to face an in-flux Titans at Cbus Super Stadium on Sunday, Bromwich said he's happy to leave the trick plays to those around him.

Bromwich said the 62nd-minute kick which put Olam over in the Storm's 40-16 win over Cronulla was something that surprised even himself.

"I won't get carried away doing that sort of stuff," he said.

"I am just playing my role on that edge and I am quite blessed to play outside [Cameron] Munster and inside [Wil] Chambers and Foxx [Addo-Carr].

"If I just plug in there and do my role I think anybody could do a good job around those fellas."

The one-game suspension Christian Welch will serve this weekend comes on top of Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy giving fellow Origin representatives Josh Addo-Carr, Cameron Munster, Will Chambers and Felise Kaufusi a week off following the Origin series.

Titans v Storm - Round 18

Utility Joe Stimson, journeyman Sandor Earl and Fijian Tui Kamikamica have all earned spots in the starting 13, while forward duo Tino Faasuamaleaui and Tom Eisenhuth have been named on the bench.

After the Titans parted ways with coach Garth Brennan on Sunday, Bromwich expects the players he will line up against to put in a strong performance.

"I am confident they will go out there, prepare the best they can and play well on Sunday," Bromwich told

"Every time we play the Titans they turn up and play some good footy against us.

"They are a real tough outfit when they come up against the Storm, so I am sure this time is going to be no different."

Bromwich has been one of the Storm's most consistent performers this season and is coming off arguably his best game of the campaign. He ran for 117m and made 29 tackles in an 80-minute performance.

On Wednesday, Bromwich appeared alongside his older brother Jesse at the annual Storm In Your Club initiative that saw the entire playing group visit junior rugby league clubs around Melbourne this week to help inspire young players and promote the game across the city.

The brothers met with members of the Waverley Oakleigh Panthers rugby league club and believe the experience is an important part of their role as professional players.

"We know that AFL is the dominant sport out here in Melbourne, so we love to get out and do our part to promote rugby league," Kenny Bromwich said.

"This is the club that Jesse and I always visit and it is always good to come back and see the kids."
