The Titans stars to watch in Women's Origin I

It will be a historic night on Thursday as Game I of Women's State of Origin kicks of the inaugural three-game series.

The Gold Coast Titans NRLW squad is well represented with six players donning the Maroon jersey, and another two in Sky Blue.

Kicking off at Suncorp Stadium, the first interstate clash of 2024 will showcase three Titans who have overcome injury and returned from off-field pursuits, all prepared to run out for their representative states.

Watch Game I live on Channel 9 and 9 Now from 7.30pm.

The Titans players to watch

Emily Bass

Emily Bass had a milestone 2023 State of Origin series, scoring two tries to be the equal leading try scorer alongside Queensland teammate Julia Robinson and New South Wales' Tiana Penitani. 

Suffering a shoulder injury late in the second half of Game II, 2023 Bass’ first NRLW season with the Titans was also disrupted by injury, only allowing her to represent the Gold Coast on four occasions.

However, having now secured the Maroon for the third consecutive series, Bass is prepared to embody the Queensland spirit, making her a key player to watch come Thursday night.

Lauren Brown

Returning to the Maroons camp for the first time since 2022, Lauren Brown has been named to start from the bench and is set to play a crucial role for Queensland in Game I.

Accepted into the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services in December 2022, the Titans utility was forced to make a tough decision in 2023, choosing between representing her state for the fourth time or accomplishing another long-standing professional goal.

However, having spent time away from the Origin arena, her firefighting experience has only further fuelled the competitive fire inside Brown, preparing her more than ever to run out at Suncorp for a historic three-game series.

Taliah Fuimaono

Named to represent the Sky Blues for her second series, Taliah Fuimaono will start from the bench when taking on the Maroons this Thursday night.

Fuimaono was also plagued by injury during her 2023 NRLW season with the Titans, suffering a season-ending ankle injury in their Round 1 clash against the Cowboys.

Despite her time out of the 2023 NRLW season, the Titans five-eighth is prepared for a series of redemption, ready to showcase her talent in what is set to be an electric three-game origin series.
