Murphy backing grand final success in 2024

Karyn Murphy is confident her squad can go one better in 2024 as the Titans coach finalises her roster for this season's NRLW campaign.

Falling just short in last year's grand final to Newcastle, the Gold Coast mentor believes they can avenge their disappointment in Sydney with the decider setting the expectation of what she wants to achieve every year with the talented playing roster. 

"The year before when we were the bottom of the ladder to where we finished last year... we always knew we had improvement in us," Murphy said.

"To get to that grand final was definitely great for us last year, but the challenge for us now is to be that footy team that's there every year.

"I think it's a pretty easy motivation with us getting a taste of where we got to last year, making the grand final but not winning the premiership.

"Our goal is always to win premierships and bring premierships to the Gold Coast community, so that's our motivation.

"We'll be working hard to be there every year and go one better this year and win the big one."

Lauding the full effect of multi-year contracts - which has seen minimal roster change among the Titans - Murphy is excited to be retaining a majority of players who she believes will continue to achieve success in 2024.

"It's given the club some certainty, but more importantly the girls have certainty with their future and where they're playing for the next few years," she said.

"They're a great group of girls and what you saw last year I think is just the beginning of what they're going to achieve.

"They've come together so quickly and you could see it in their footy last year. There were patches that weren't great, but just their buy-in and how they played for each other is what I think got us through to the big one last year.

"We've got a good group there, so to keep those girls together is really important."

Whilst the start of the NRLW season is still a few months away, the women's rugby league calendar begins with the All Stars on February 16, followed by the BMD Premiership and Origin ahead of pre-season.

"We'll have some good representation in the All Stars and it kick starts a big calendar for the girls," Murphy said.

"From the All Stars, it'll then be the state competition and Origin, so there's a lot to get through before we get to NRLW."
