From Olympic rings to Premiership rings

Evania Pelite isn't worried about performing on the big stage.

She's been there plenty of times before and she's come out a winner.

An Olympic Gold medallist in rugby sevens, Pelite is a Titans original - joining the Gold Coast NRLW side in the club's first season in 2022.

Now into season number three, Pelite says a premiership trophy has always been the goal since her cross-code switch.

"Honestly, just getting to an NRLW grand final has been massive for me," she said.

"I want to go one better and get that premiership ring and that's the goal for us and we are not leaving here (Sydney) without it.

"I'd love to add a premiership title to the rest of the amazing achievements I've had and I couldn't think of a better bunch of girls to achieve that alongside."

Despite her experience, it's Pelite's first NRLW grand final.

It's the same for Titans captain Georgia Hale.

Having spent three seasons at the New Zealand Warriors, Hale joined the Titans upon their entry to the league.

Despite playing representative footy for the Kiwi Ferns, it'll be Hale's first grand final appearance when she runs out on Sunday.

"I feel like one of the 18-year-olds in the group, it's my first grand final," she said.

"I'm just sitting back and trying to enjoy all of the small moments and soak it up as much as possible."

34-year-old Karina Brown is another who is yet to lift the NRLW trophy.

A distinguished rugby league career that has included Australian and Queensland jerseys, Brown is another who has been at the Titans since the beginning.

The Titans winger made the NRLW grand final in the competition's inaugural season, playing for the Roosters in a losing side in 2018.

Having played in a host of teams over her career, Brown says this group has the potential to create history.

"I've had some really special moments in my career and some special teams, but this one is right up there," she said.

"I haven't won a premiership ring yet and this could be the time to do it."

Jaime Chapman is another who wants to add a premiership to her already glittering rugby league CV.

Having played Origin and for the Jillaroos, Chapman is hungry for her first NRLW title having previously fallen short in the 2021 grand final while playing for the Roosters.

"I've always wanted to have a premiership ring in the jewelry cabinet, but I just want to win for the Gold Coast," Chapman said.

"The ring would be good, but a premiership for the Gold Coast is even better.

"We've been putting up little rings and post-it notes and everything in our change room about the Gold Coast Titans premiership and having an NRLW premiership ring.

"That's something that we've been doing is envisioning it."

Jessika Elliston doesn't have to picture it, she's done it before.

Prior to the Titans entering the competition, she won the NRLW title in 2020 with Brisbane.

Coming off a poor season in 2022, Elliston says the group were determined to bring success to the Coast and it was important that the experienced players step up.

"Last year was something where we were like, no we are not letting that happen again," she said.

"Just how hard everyone has worked to get to this point, it is amazing."

As one of the Titans originals, joining the team upon their entry to the NRLW competition, she knows how much a maiden trophy would mean to the region.

"It'd just be amazing to bring it home for a place where a lot of us girls grew up playing footy and our community has all put in the effort to get us there," she said.

"It's taken a village pretty much, that's what has lead to the success."
