Bass jumping for Destiny debut

Emily Bass might be one of the new faces in the Titans NRLW side, but already she feels like a veteran.

Speaking for the first time in Titans colours, Bass expressed her joy at finally getting to play on Cbus Super Stadium and also the pride she felt for her fellow winger Destiny Mino-Sinapati.

"She (Destiny) is a really good human and a young kid coming through the ranks," Bass said.

"She is probably a bit like me and hasn't had years and years of experience in league but she has got the talent and has worked really hard.

"She might be young but she is very professional in the way she acts and trains and you either have that or you don't.

"I am really excited for her to make her debut - I obviously played with her at Wynnum and she was great for us and I am really excited for her.

"I fell like I am her mother, being really excited but she is a good kid and I can't wait for her to take the field."

Bass isn't just excited for her counterpart though, with a long-awaited Cbus Super Stadium debut coming for the former Bond University student, who consider the Coast home.

"Firstly, I am really excited to be joining the Gold Coast Titans this year, moving away from the Broncos and joining some legends here," she said.

"The culture, it (the Titans) is a very close knit community, with our team but also the men's and the staff as well.

"I come from a rugby union background at Bond University and the Titans kind of has that family environment like that, which I like.

"It is such a beautiful stadium and a fast track, which I like.  

"I have never played here so I am really excited to play on the Gold Coast and it is kind of like home, having gone to university here.

The Titans will take on the North Queensland Cowboys, who will be playing their first ever NRLW match, as one of four new teams in the competition in 2023. 

The sides met a fortnight ago in their trial with the Titans winning 30-6, but Bass knows that means nothing come Saturday.

"I am really excited (for the Cowboys), they have a young group with Talisha Harden leading them.

"We got the trial win but that doesn't really matter come the real thing. 

"I don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves, but with the group we have we want to aim for finals footy and with the roster we have hopefully we can do that.

Bass' Titans debut will coincide with the club's Super Hero Saturday, in conjunction with Warner Bros. Movie World, featuring a range of characters and family activity combining with the double header to make enjoyable afternoon out.

"The NRLW Titans team hasn't been a part of Super Hero Saturday for the last three years so I am really excited alongside Batman and Batgirl and I think it is a really good initiative that the Titans have shown and hopefully we can get that family vibe down here on Saturday," Bass said.
