Brown says game plan is black and white

Karina Brown has played a lot of footy in a lot of different teams, but she says there is something special about this group of Titans.

As the first signing to the Gold Coast NRLW franchise, Brown has watched the club and the support of the women's program grow over the past three seasons.

She says it's not by accident that the Gold Coast club has built a culture which has lead to on-field success.

"It's just the whole club, it starts at the top with Steve Mitchell (CEO)," Brown said.

"Our trademark as a club is to inspire the community through energy and unite them through success and we just hold that and never lose sight of that.

"All of the staff in the club, the coaching staff and our management, everyone has just bought in.

"Every player, we've just bought in, we're here to win.

"There is an unbelievable feeling among the group.

"It's really special for the club and for the community and we are going gold for gold."

Brown says the playing group have been lifted by the outpouring of local support, including those who braved wet weather to turn up to the side's last training run at Parkwood earlier in the week.

"That was really special, I thought the rain would scare people off but we had a few hundred people there," she said.

"It was great to feel the community and what it means to everyone.

"It gives us a purpose to play for."

Having played at the highest level, Brown knows how to balance the excitement and nerves that comes with a big game.

Although, even she says it's hard not to be swept up in the emotion of grand final week.

"All week I've been going up but I just have to bring myself back to neutral," she said.

"I'm a pretty cool, calm and collected customer.

"I'll be a bit nervous in the sheds on gameday but we've done the work and we know what to do so we are really comfortable and confident in our plan."

Brown says the Titans know what they've got to do to perform on Sunday and they won't be veering away from their style of footy.

"The junkyard dogs, that's our trademark that we've lived by," she said.

"It's really starting to come to fruition in the last couple of weeks ... but we're not done yet.

"Last week just instilled that self-belief that we need to take us over the line.

"It's been our goal since day one that we're not finishing the season without the trophy.

"It's right there now for the taking, we've just got to action it on Sunday."
