Brittany Breayley-Nati

The former Queensland and Jillaroos rake is a marquee signing for the club and will bring plenty of experience to the Titans side. Brittany Breayley-Nati was the game's inaugural NRLW player of the year in 2018 and has plenty of big game experience, fresh from winning the QRLW title with the Burleigh Bears in 2021.

Kimi Breayley-Nati

Representing New Zealand at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup, Kimi Breayley-Nati is no stranger to the big stage. The Kiwi Ferns International made her NRLW debut in 2018, winning the inaugural premiership with the Brisbane Broncos before signing with the Dragons in 2019. Bringing truckloads of experience to the Titans, the five-eighth has her eyes firmly set on winning another premiership ring in the new colours.

Destiny Brill

Making her Harvey Norman Queensland Maroons debut at only 18 years of age in 2021, the gun hooker joins the Titans as a highly-anticipated prospect. Owning the No. 9 jersey with the Valleys Diehards in last season's QRLW Premiership after developing her craft at Marsden State High School, her rookie of the year form earned the youngster an Origin call-up where she scored the only try in the gripping encounter.

Karina Brown

Another marquee signing for the Titans in the new season, the experienced campaigner knows what it takes to succeed in the top grade. The speedy back has been a regular for Queensland over the last decade and was a mainstay in the title-winning 2013 and 2017 Rugby League World Cup Jillaroos squads. Playing for the Roosters and Warriors in previous NRLW campaigns, Brown can't wait to pull on the jersey for her home town.

Zara Canfield

Young Zara Canfield has had a great opportunity to learn from the best in recent years and is excited to bring what she has learned to the Gold Coast Titans. The Tweed Seagulls back-rower was part of the Brisbane Broncos NRLW squad in 2020 and dominated in last year's QRLW season, typically running for over 100 metres per game and defending the house down.

Brianna Clark

A wrecking ball from North Queensland, Clark made her NRLW debut with the Warriors in 2020 after impressing for the Prime Minister's XIII against Fiji. Last season was a career high for the prop, playing in the QRLW grand final with the Valleys Diehards and making her Queensland debut in the Women's State of Origin. Beebs is hungry to keep her good form ticking along as a much-welcomed addition to the Titans forward pack.

Lauren Dam

An army medic by day, Lauren Dam is an impressive footballer by night; representing the Australian Defence Force in last year's National Women's Championships. The centre was also a key part of the West Brisbane Panthers' QRLW campaign in 2021, scoring seven tries across the season, including a crucial four-pointer in their semi-final clash.

Jessika Elliston

Palm Beach Currumbin alumni Jessika Elliston has already achieved plenty in her rugby league career at such a young age and is hoping to add another NRLW title to her personal trophy cabinet with the Titans. The edge forward has plenty of big game experience as a premiership winner with the Broncos in 2019 and 2020 and made her Queensland debut off the bench in 2019.

Jetaya Faifua

The teen live-wire is lightning fast at just 18-years-old, representing Queensland in the Women's State of Origin Under 19 clash mid-last year. Faifua was also a try-scoring machine for the Burleigh Bears in the QRLW, amassing seven four-pointers in only five appearances, including an all-important double in the premiership decider. 

Tazmin Gray

Born in Tweed Heads, Gray is a marquee signing for the Gold Coast Titans and is excited to represent her home region. The Australian International starred in all three NRLW seasons for three different clubs - winning the title with the Brisbane Broncos in 2019. She is also six-time Queensland representative and has proudly showcased her Maori heritage in the annual All Stars clash since 2017.

Grace Griffin

Despite being relatively new to rugby league, Grace Griffin is no stranger to having a Steeden in her hand. The Queensland touch football representative made her QRLW debut for the Valleys Diehards last year in the halves and is one to watch out for, particularly with her lethal passing game.

Georgia Hale

A marquee signing for the Gold Coast Titans, the former Warriors captain is a versatile player that can fill a number of positions on the field. Moving from New Zealand in early 2021, Hale captained the Tweed Seagulls in the QRLW and averaged 120 running metres and 40 tackles a game. Away from rugby league, she is a former Veronica White medallist and the 2020 Young New Zealander of the Year.

Steph Hancock

An absolute pioneer for women's rugby league, Queensland's favourite daughter joins the Titans after stints with the Brisbane Broncos and St George-Illawarra Dragons. The former Jillaroos captain made her International debut in 2003, winning multiple World Cups in the green and gold as well appearing 16 times for Queensland - her last, winning the 2020 Women's State of Origin before retiring from representative rugby league.

Karli Hansen

It took young Karli Hansen just 90 seconds to score a try in her debut for the Kiwi Ferns in 2020. One of the stars for New Zealand in their last Test match against Samoa, Hansen is one of the most skilful players in the Titans squad and is expected to be one to watch in the halves.

Shannon Mato

A former Queensland Reds and Wallaroos player, Mato transitioned to rugby league in 2020 where she made her NRLW and Queensland Origin debut. Last season, the prop forward starred for the Maori All Stars before playing for North Sydney in the New South Wales Harvey Norman Women's Premiership. The dual-code star then returned to Queensland to take her place in the victorious Origin team.

Cobie-Jane Morgan

A skilful rugby union halfback, Cobie-Jane Morgan has swapped the Gilbert for a Steeden after joining the Gold Coast Titans for the upcoming NRLW season. A highly-regarded representative for both the Reds and Waratahs in the Super W competition, Morgan has also worn the green and gold at the 2010 and 2014 Rugby World Cups and knows what it takes on the biggest stage.

April Ngatupuna

A young and exciting rugby league prospect from Marsden State High School, April Ngatupuna was part of the Queensland Under 19 team that faced New South Wales mid-last season. The barnstorming prop forward also starred for West Brisbane Panthers in the Harvey Norman Under 19 competition, finishing the season with a hat-trick of tries and is hoping to make her NRLW debut with the Titans in the upcoming season.

Evania Pelite

An Olympic gold medallist, Evania Pelite joins the Gold Coast Titans after standing on the top of the podium at the 2016 Rio Olympics with the Australian Rugby Sevens side. She was also part of the silver medal-winning team at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Off the field, she was awarded an Order of Australia Medal in 2017 for her contribution to sport and looks forward to joining the Titans after making her NRLW debut for the Warriors in 2020.

Jasmine Peters

From Mackay, 19-year-old Jasmine Peters was electrifying for the Gold Stars in last year's QRLW competition. Her good form earned the North Queensland young gun selection in the Queensland Under 19 side at fullback and can't wait to relish the opportunity to be part of the inaugural Gold Coast Titans NRLW squad.

Shaniah Power

Born in Bowen, the Whitsunday Brahmans junior has flourished in the past 18 months, making her NRLW debut for the Warriors in 2020 before coming off the bench for Queensland that same year. More success came for Power last season when playing for the North Queensland Gold Stars, making it through to the semi-finals. She was also part of Queensland's 8-6 win over New South Wales.

Tiana Raftstrand-Smith

A young and skilful utility, Tiana Raftstrand-Smith made her Origin debut at just 18 years of age last season. Going to school at Keebra Park SHS, Raftstrand-Smith has played club footy with Parkwood Sharks the last two seasons whilst also starring for Burleigh in the QRLW Premiership. The New Zealand-born up-and-comer will be looking to make her NRLW debut with the Gold Coast Titans in 2022.

Crystal Tamarua

Another marquee signing for the Gold Coast Titans, Tamarua brings plenty of big game experience to the club as a Kiwi Ferns and Cook Islands International representative. The powerful forward has been a mainstay with the Warriors' NRL squad in past years and joins Queensland's newest NRLW club after a successful season with the Burleigh Bears in the QRLW.

...

The Gold Coast Titans NRLW squad will also see young up-and-coming prospects Ebony Laing, Jayda Lofipo, Brooke Saddler and Makenzie Weale train with the side as development players.
