Chapman determined to bring trophy back to the Coast

If ever you needed to hear where the Titans mindset was ahead of this weekend's NRLW grand final, these words from Jaime Chapman sum up the feeling around the group.

"We did win the semi's and that's really exciting but we still haven't won anything yet," she said.

"Nobody remembers second, everyone remembers first.

"So we are going to get in there and win the premiership."

That determination and focus shines across the Titans NRLW squad, who know they've already created history by becoming the first national league side from the region to make a grand final.

"I feel like everyone is jumping on the bandwagon this weekend for the GF, so we're really excited," Chapman said.

"I'm really excited for the girls and our community and for the club.

"We are already history makers but we've still got one more."

In her first year on the Gold Coast, Chapman says she couldn't be prouder of the efforts of her team in 2023.

Alongside Titans team-mates Shaylee Bent and Taliah Fuimaono, Chapman was on the wrong side of a grand final result when their former club (Dragons) was defeated by the Roosters.

While she has a personal goal to lift the trophy this time around, she knows the impact of the result will be much wider across the Gold Coast community.

"I have always wanted to have a premiership ring in the jewelry cabinet," Chapman said.

"I just want to win for the Gold Coast.

"It has never been done before and it is going to be history and I'm really excited for that.

"A ring is good but a premiership for the Gold Coast is even better.

"The job is not done yet, so I will celebrate after the game.

"We talk about this all the time, we've just got to stick to what we do and what we know.

"We talk about our bubble and what comes in and what goes out and we don't let anything else in.

"We'll stay true to that and prepare like that for the grand final."

While the representative centre is often spoken about for her attacking game, she says the focus will be on shutting down the Knights.

After keeping the Roosters scoreless in the semi-final, Chapman says the approach doesn't change this weekend.

"Murph (coach Karyn Murphy) says that we need to win by our defence and that defence wins games."

Should the Titans create history on Sunday, Chapman says it'll be even more special to celebrate with some of her closest friends.

"With Loz (Lauren Brown) and Shay (Shaylee Bent) and my left edge, we are all best mates off the field so it makes it pretty easy to have our combinations on the field.

"We are just all good mates, which makes it really easy."
