Forward thinking for Elliston ahead of Eels clash

Jessika Elliston knows there's nothing like a first win, but she also isn't getting carried away.

The Titans forward says the squad appreciates the enormity of being the first group of women to record an NRLW win for the Gold Coast after the club defeated the Sydney Roosters in round two of the competition.

But, she also knows that the talented group have plenty more to give.

"We definitely didn't execute at 100 per cent but we definitely improved," Elliston said.

"The first game was a bit of us not being able to connect but now we've got our stuff forward we are a different team and I think we will improve again this week."

Asked what changed from week one to week two, the cheeky forward was quick to acknowledge her fellow middles.

"I'm always going to say the forwards because you know the forwards are amazing," she laughs.

"Seriously though, everyone just connected and everyone knew their jobs and it showed on the field."

The 24-year-old has played two previous seasons with the Broncos before joining the Titans for the club's inaugural campaign.

She says she feels a sense of pride in representing the Coast and believes the Titans culture will bring success to the region.

"I really love the culture here and I love the girls and I feel connected and at home with the Titans," she said.

"Here I've got all of my confidence back and I've got a really good group of girls around me.

"I live here, I've always played footy around here and it is really cool to represent the Gold Coast."

After predominantly playing in the second row, Elliston says she is getting used to more time in the middle as the makes an impact from the bench.

"Front row is quite new to me, so I'm trying to learn something new each game.

"I look to try and get fast play the balls.

"I'm not the biggest chick on the field, so I look to fast play the balls and trying to get the girls going forward."

The Titans play Parramatta in round three before returning to Cbus Super Stadium in round four for a local derby clash against the Brisbane Broncos and a chance to play in front of a home crowd for the first time.
