FINALLY, some good news for Gold Coast footy fans.
After a fortnight of turmoil following shocking back-to-back NRL performances, the Titans this morning officially announced the return of veteran prop Brenton Lawrence.
The 32-year-old made his NRL debut for the Titans in 2011 before establishing himself as a first grade regular during his five-year stint at Manly.
Lawrence will return to the Coast in 2018 on a two-year deal, bolstering a pack that will be without Chris McQueen (Wests Tigers) and Leivaha Pulu (New Zealand Warriors).
“The Titans is where I started my NRL journey and after five great years at Manly I felt it was the right time to return home,” Lawrence said.
“After speaking to Neil and understanding the Titans’ future plans, I am excited to be joining the club again.”
Titans coach Neil Henry added the consistent Lawrence is “getting better with age”.
“He is the type of player that you know exactly what you are going to get from him and he will be a leader in the middle for us,” he said.
Gold Coast will play St George Illawarra at Jubilee Oval on Saturday.
