Georgia Hale eyes local derby after NRLW Draw announcement

Titans NRLW Star Georgia Hale says her team is ready and rearing to get to work now that the NRLW draw has been released.

“We’ve been waiting for this announcement! We’re beyond excited that our draw is locked in and the footy we’ve been looking forward to is now not too far away,” she said.

The Titans NRLW squad will play the first game of their inaugural season against the Illawarra Dragons as part of a triple header in Newcastle on February 27.

With the draw now official, the team will shift their attention to preseason. When asked what she will be doing between now and preseason, Hale will be focused on ensuring she is fresh and ready to go for training.

“I will be starting my own prep, continuing to tick over and get in a bit of maintenance training beforehand.

“It’s also a good time to get the body feeling refreshed and repaired so I’ll enjoy this last bit of chill time before preseason so we can start off with a bang.”

Georgia Hale is excited for NRLW to be a part of the Titans' next phase

After seeing the draw, the New Zealand Ferns representative says she is keen to challenge last year’s Premiers.

“I’m most excited to play the Broncos. Not only is playing against the current best a challenge that we are up for, but to do it on the home turf will be a bonus.

"I never really understand the whole state of origin rivalry till I touched down in Australia, and since living on the Gold Coast now to see the staunch encounters between the different Queensland city’s have with one another.

"I’m just pumped to get to be a part of it when that time comes and hopefully the Gold Coast girls get up on the day.”

In her fourth season playing in the NRLW, Georgia believes hard work and teamwork are the key to a successful year in Titans colours.

“I want to put my best foot forward to be competing for a spot to wear the Titans strip week in and week out.

I’m looking to train hard, connect with a great group of people and then enjoy the footy on the field when the time comes.”
