Titans farewell rugby league legend

The Gold Coast extend their sincere and heartfelt thank you to NRLW Titan #6 Steph Hancock, with the rugby league journeywoman set to pursue another opportunity in 2024.

The inaugural Titan has made 22 appearances since joining in 2021 and played a strong role in all three past Gold Coast seasons – including featuring in the club’s historic grand final appearance last year.

Proving age is no barrier with a playing career that has now spanned over 20 years after recently celebrating her 42nd birthday, Hancock has been both a teammate and a mentor to the Coast’s crop of young talent during her time at the Titans – taking players like Rilee Jorgensen under her wing in their maiden seasons.

Titans coach Karyn Murphy is full of praise for the women’s rugby league legend.

"Steph has been an absolute trailblazer for our game. It’s been an honour to have had her part of the Titans since day dot," she said.

"Not only has Steph been a great contributor on-field, but her off-field role in helping mentor and nurture the next generation of talent coming through has been pivotal to their success – helping grow their confidence across each season.

"She’s been a great servant of our game and I commend her for her desire to continue playing the game after all she has achieved not only at a NRLW level, but for Queensland and the Jillaroos as well.

"As a former teammate of Steph's before coaching her at the Titans, I’ve been lucky to share plenty of special moments across her illustrious career, and I wish her the best of luck in her future endeavours."
