The Gold Coast Titans Physical Disability and Intellectual Disability Rugby League Teams competed in curtain-raiser games at CBUS Stadium earlier this month.
The teams from the Leagueability program opened the final home game of the season with two entertaining, fast-paced games for Titans fans.
For the first time ever, three females made their debut in the Leagueability games.
Gold Coast Titans Physical Disability Rugby League Team coach Craig Wallace said the games were a great way to finish the season.
"It has been a really hard 24 months for our teams," he said.
"With lockdowns, training restrictions and games being cancelled, it has been a hard time for everyone.
"For both of the teams to be able to run out onto the field and open the NRL game was such a big deal.
"It was a really great moment for everyone, including the fans to be a part of.
"Everyone in the stands were cheering on the players, which made the game even more energetic and exciting," Wallace said.
General Manager of Community and Game Development Renee Cohen, said the games were an exciting preview of the 2022 season.
"Everyone is so excited to come back into the 2022 season and play," she said.
"Every single player trains so hard at training each session, so it is great to see them improve every time they run onto the field.
"It was even more exciting to have our first female players run onto the field.
"With our inaugural NRLW team, young girls coming through our junior academies and now our first ever females playing in our PDRL and IDRL teams, our 2022 season is looking really exciting," Cohen said.
The Titans Leagueability teams will finish up their season at the Gold Coast Beach 5s in late October.
