Gold Coast Titans

Titans hopeful of signing Gordon

It is believed the Titans will sign the 34-year-old custodian to a two-year deal if the Roosters allow him to walk away from his contract for next season.

Gordon was set to be moved from his favoured fullback position to the wing next season due to the arrival of NSW star James Tedesco at the Roosters.

Gold Cost are in the market for a fullback following Jarryd Hayne's well-documented switch last Friday to his former club, the Parramatta Eels.

Brennan lures Rein to Titans

The 27 year-old rake had limited opportunities at Penrith this year, playing just five games when Peter Wallace was injured, but he didn't kick stones.

Hayne wants out - report

Hayne is said to want a release from the final year of his NZ$1.3 million Titans contract for personal reasons, but has yet to inform the club of his intentions.

It's the latest twist in his tumultuous stint on the holiday strip after his much-publicised feud with Neil Henry. That stoush ultimately cost the coach his job, sacked with a year remaining on his contract.

The 29-year-old has only been on the Gold Coast for 15 months, after he returned from overseas stints in the NFL and rugby sevens.

Taylor signs lucrative renewal with Titans

Taylor's original deal was due to expire in 2019 but the 22-year-old half-back's contract will now run through to 2021, it was announced on Wednesday.

Terms of the renewal were not disclosed however, Taylor – who attracted interest from rival clubs including Brisbane Broncos – is reportedly set to earn one million Australian dollars per season.

Taylor said the appointment of Garth Brennan as head coach following Neil Henry's sacking was a key factor.

Titans to unleash 'Greg Bird clone'

‌A mid-season recruit from the Brisbane Broncos, Hipgrave will make his NRL debut against the Roosters at Allianz Stadium on Saturday and bring the type of aggressive intent that Bird was so famous for during his 14-year career in the NRL.

Roberts set to remain a Titan in 2018

Roberts has made a return to his favoured five-eighth position in recent weeks but has started at fullback, in the centres and at hooker during the course of an injury-plagued season for the Gold Coast club.

The Titans presented a contract offer to Roberts' management midway through the season which was initially rejected but the two parties have re-opened negotiations and the 26-year-old is hopeful of committing to the club prior to the off-season break.

"I want to [stay]," Roberts told NRL.com. "We're in talks now so hopefully we'll get it done in a couple of weeks."

The mistake Titans made in signing Hayne

It was a day of high drama on the Gold Coast on Monday as both Hayne and coach Neil Henry were summoned to individual interviews with Titans CEO Graham Annesley and chair Rebecca Frizelle that were described as "open, frank and honest" before an emergency meeting of the board was convened.

That almost three-hour meeting was adjourned and an agreement reached that a final decision on the outcomes be delayed until all the information was received yet just an hour later reports emerged that Henry could be sacked in the coming days.

Plug pulled on Titans' season

This occurred just as Henry and captain Ryan James had walked into the room.

It was the perfect real-life metaphor for what had transpired over the preceding 80 minutes.

With the Knights breathing new life into the Titans' finals hopes by briefly quelling the top eight aspirations of the Dragons 24 hours earlier, Gold Coast came out against a team in 15th position and were comprehensively outplayed in all areas of the game.

Greenwood-Elgey combo major weapon for Titans

As Titans five-eighth Kane Elgey drifted left late in the final minute of the first half against the Cowboys in Townsville last Saturday night, back-rower Joe Greenwood speared back on an angle.

Elgey hit the towering Englishman with a short ball 12 metres from the Cowboys try-line, a wonderful tackle down low by Lachlan Coote all that stopped Greenwood from crossing for his third try of the season.

Titans stun Storm

Hayne's NSW State of Origin chances are in some doubt, the Titans' centre breaking down with a knee injury in the 67th minute on Saturday night with the game in the balance.

When he was helped off the field, there were fears Hayne had re-aggravated a left-ankle injury that had sidelined him earlier this year for six weeks.

But a relieved Hayne emerged from the sheds after fulltime to celebrate centre Konrad Hurrell's 78th-minute match-winning try after being diagnosed with just nerve damage in the knee.
