Titans nrl School Competitions

Titans school Boys competitions

The Titans School Boys Competitions began as the Titans Cup & Challenge in 2006 as an two-tier, open age competition for local Gold Coast high schools. The competition provides schools with less rugby league experience with the opportunity to compete in a regular interschool competition in a fun and safe environment where they develop themselves into better rugby league teams. High schools from South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales are welcome to enter teams into the competition.

In 2017 the under 15's division was introduced expanding the competition further with more teams playing with their open aged counterparts. Based on the uptake of new teams and feedback from schools, in 2018 the competition will be open to Year 7/8, Year 9/10 and Year 11/12 age divisions. Matches will be played on Wednesday evenings during term 2. The complete draw with times and venues will be dependent on nominations and available at the end of term 1.

To nominate your school team, fill out the form below with all the details. Nominations close Friday 2nd March.

Gold Coast Karyn Murphy Cup

Formerly known as the Titans Girls Nines Competition, the Gold Coast Karyn Murphy Cup links in with the newly formed state wide competition named after the former Queensland and Australian Jillaroos captain. The Karyn Murphy Cup will offer females of all ages across Queensland the opportunity to participate in a state-wide competition which will be the first of its kind. 

Female participation is the fastest growing area of Rugby League. The NRL is committed to establishing a clear female player pathway with regional, state and elite representative opportunities. The competition is played in the nines Rugby League format under the NRL Safe Play Code, allowing girls the perfect environment to safely try their hand at the sport or advance their skills further.

The 2018 Gold Coast Karyn Murphy Cup is open to Year 7/8, Year 9/10 and Year 11/12 age divisions and will be held on Wednesday evenings during term 2. The complete draw with times and venues will be dependent on nominations and available at the end of term 1.
