The Titans have continued to strengthen their long-term roster with Jess Elliston extending her time on the Gold Coast until 2027.
Already locked in for next season, the 26-year-old joins her fellow prop partner Shannon Mato in the club’s engine room for at least the next four years as they aim to build and achieve ultimate success following their maiden grand final appearance last month.
Playing every game of her fifth NRLW season, the new-age front rower finished in the competition’s top three forwards for run metres and post-contact metres; helping her earn a well-deserved call-up for the Jillaroos in the recent Pacific Championships.
Born and bred on the Gold Coast, the Palm Beach Currumbin alum is also a member of the Titans’ foundation team – having won the inaugural player of the year honour in 2021.
Coach Karyn Murphy is excited to secure Elliston’s services long-term after one of her best seasons in the NRLW.
“It’s fair to say this season has been Jess’ best in her career to date and it’s incredible to think she hasn’t even hit her ceiling of growth yet,” Murphy said.
“Her first year as a regular starter for us up front was extremely impressive, and she was more than deserving of her recent Jillaroos debut. It was the ultimate reward for her season of hard work to become one of the game’s leading front rowers.
“I’m extremely pleased we have her in our pack until at least 2027 and I can’t wait to see her continue to grow as we aim to lift that NRLW trophy.”
