Historic premiership Murphy's motivator to help Titans pluck Chooks

The Titans NRLW team have one simple goal they want to achieve as they head into this Sunday's semi-final against the Roosters.

They want to bring the first premiership home to the Gold Coast.

It's an objective coach Karyn Murphy has continually addressed with her team and there's no better opportunity to get closer to achieving that feat than with a win against the Tricolours in Sydney.

"We really want to bring that first premiership home to the Gold Coast and it's something we always speak about as a group and have since day one of our pre-season.

"It would be mean a lot to no only our girls, but the club and the community to be able to do that, so that's definitely our focus.

"We're happy that we've we finished third and into a semi, but that's not where we want to finish... we want to win that premiership."

On a four-game winning streak heading into this weekend's do-or-die clash, the last team the Titans lost to was to their upcoming opponents in Round 5 - but the challengers are a completely different outfit this time around, having finished the season on the same number of competition points as the 2021 premiers.

"I think a lot has changed [since that game] and we've obviously spoken about that being our biggest loss and our last loss," Murphy said.

"Our defence has always been good, but our attack has got a lot better - particularly in the last few weeks with the combinations building, so we're definitely a different footy team to that game.

"That's probably another exciting part... we've been keen since then to get back and prove ourselves against that Roosters team. They've got plenty of quality the Roosters and that's why everyone is talking about them.

"They've been the final firm favourites since day one and there's plenty of Jillaroos representative players in that team.

"We've just been concentrating on ourselves and we'll keep going about our work quietly,  ready to give it a really good crack this weekend."

Having named an unchanged 17 for the clash again this week - keeping the same team for the past three weeks already, Murphy hinted the possibility of experienced playmaker Taliah Fuimaono remaining at 18th player but likely won't know the answer to the burning question on everyone's lips until just before kick-off.

"Every week, she's getting better and better and she's still working through it," she said.

"Obviously, it was quite a bad injury and now it's about coming back from that and getting confidence. She's been on the training field with the girls for the last couple of weeks and getting the combinations on there.

"She's 18th player at this stage, so we'll just see how she goes over the next 24 hours."
