    The 2019 season that was for Titan forward Nic Torrens:

    The young front rower started for the Titans U14/15 Invitational side that went down 32 – 10 to a Titans Brisbane/Gold Coast based U14 side in early October 2019 and was one his sides best in the high quality match at Tweed Heads.

    For Clarence Coast in the 2019 Group One U15 competition Nic Torrens played in thirteen matches including finals scoring forty eight points from eight tries and an identical number of goals with two of those tries coming in Clarence Coast’s 14 – 10 Grand Final win over Ballina. Nic Torrens was in fact named player of the Grand Final such was his dominance throughout the match.

    In addition to his Grand Final double Nic Torrens also scored doubles in three separate matches against Casino RSM. With the boot Nic Torrens kicked three goals late in the season against Lismore Marist Brothers.

    Nic Torrens also had an outstanding 2019 season with MacLean High School dominating in the DEX Shield competition including one match against Grafton High School in which Nic Torrens was as close to unstoppable as I have seen a player be in a match.

    2019 also saw Nic Torrens represent Group One at the NSW Country U15 Age Championships playing three matches in the front row, scoring against Group 19 in Group One’s second match of a busy Day One of the Championships.

    In November 2019 Nic Torrens travelled to Sydney to take part in the New South Wales U16 Talented Aboriginal Athlete Program being named in the New South Wales Indigenous U16 side in late December to cap off an outstanding 2019 season for the young man.

    The 2019 season that was for Titans contracted exciting second rower Arama Hau:

    The powerful second rower took the field for the Titans in February for one of their U15 sides at Mudgeeraba that played round robin matches against each other and the Western Mustangs.

    As a result of his performance in that game and over recent seasons, Arama Hau, in early 2019 deservedly signed a contract with the Titans which will keep him with the club for the next couple of seasons at least.

    Over the off season Arama Hau transferred from Helensvale to the Nerang Roosters, starting from the bench in their U15 Division One Round One match against Ormeau but coming into the starting side in Round Two in the second row.

    In total in the GCRL U15 Division One regular season competition in 2019 Arama Hau played in eleven matches for the Roosters playing the vast majority in the second row scoring three tries, with those tries coming against Helensvale in two separate matches and Ormeau.

    In Week Two of the GCRL U15 Division One Finals series Arama Hau started in the second row against Runaway Bay and also started in the second row in the Preliminary Final as Nerang defeated Helensvale 22 – 18.

    In the 2019 GCRL U15 Division One Grand Final Arama Hau was simply outstanding starting at left second row scoring two tries as Runaway Bay prevailed in a hard 36 – 22 win over Runaway Bay. For me Arama Hau was clearly the best player on the field in the Grand Final.

    Arama Hau’s first try came in the first half after he received the ball as Nerang threw the ball out to the left, Arama Hau cut back inside as the Runaway Bay defence slid across but they could not stop a great charge from Arama Hau who scored under the posts dragging two defenders with him.

    Arama Hau scored his second try in the second half, after he made a long break down the right touchline passing back inside before going into touch. Arama Hau moved into dummy half from the resultant play the ball to dive over down a short blind side from about a metre out.

    2019 also saw Arama Hau represent South Coast at the QSSRL U15 Championships in Ipswich with South Coast going through undefeated, with Arama Hau scoring against Met East on Day Three of the Championships when he was able to score under the posts after a typically powerful hit-up which saw Arama Hau drag a number of defenders over the line with him.

    Arama Hau was also a stand-out performer for Coombabah State High School in their various schoolboy rugby league competitions in 2019 which resulted in his selection in the South Coast side.

    Arama Hau's 2020 season kicked off on the weekend when he was part of the Titans U16 side that defeated Newcastle 18-14 in Coffs Harbour.

    Young New Zealander Levon Pure is a Titans linked player from Auckland who started in the halves (five eight) for the Titans U16 side that defeated the Newcastle Knights U16 Harold Matthews side in Coffs Harbour in January 2020, 18 -14 in wet, steamy and slippery conditions.

    In the match Levon Pure operated on the left side of the field with fellow New Zealander and halves partner Keano Kini on the right. Levon Pure was acknowledged for his performance by Titans JTS Co-ordinator Matt Srama in his review of the match in a video on the Titans Official Site after the match especially taking into account that Levon Pure had only two or three field sessions with the rest of the Titans team prior to the match.

    In 2019 Levon Pure played for the Northcote and Birkenhead Tigers Junior Rugby League club in the Auckland U16 competition even though he was still U15 eligible. In his eight matches in that competition in 2019 Levon Pure scored two tries to finish the 2019 season with a 25% strike rate.

    2019 also saw Levon Pure named in the Auckland Vulcans U15 representative side for the New Zealand National Youth Tournament.

    Larry Siala is an Ipswich based young man signed who yesterday signed a three year contract with the Titans.

    The big strong young front rower was one of a number of standouts for the Titans U14 side that defeated the Western Mustangs 32 – 8 in February 2019 at Mudgeeraba and also started in the front row for the Titans U14 side that defeated a Titans NRRRL U14/15 Invitational side 32 – 10 in early October 2019.

    On that extremely hot Saturday in February 2019 at Mudgeeraba Larry Siala had a simply outstanding match constantly making ground with the ball through the centre of the ruck and as a result of his late footwork prior to the line made major metres post contact and also got away a few more than impressive off-loads usually one handed right ones at that.

    I can also recall a couple of huge hits that he put on a couple of Western Mustangs forwards with a couple of the hits forcing the ball loose as a result of the initial contact by Larry Siala. Larry Siala really did stand out as a young player on the rise in that match.

    Larry Siala was selected in the 2019 Ipswich Diggers U14 representative side for the Hill Stumer Championships playing both in the second row and front row in the Diggers three matches.

    After the completion of the competition, Larry Siala was selected in the 2019 South East Queensland Green U14 squad for the Queensland Age Championships. At the Championships, Larry Siala was named on the interchange bench. Over the course of his four games at the Championships, Larry Siala highlighted his aggressiveness especially in defence spending time in both the front row and second row.

    The St Edmunds College (Ipswich) student played in the Ipswich Rugby League competition, in 2019 playing for Norths in the U14 age group.

    In the 2019 U14 pre-season Larry Siala played in three matches scoring five tries, including a hat trick against Goodna Black in Round Three and a Round Two hat trick against Brothers Ipswich White. His five tries were enough to finish the pre-season as the competitions equal second leading try scorer.

    Larry Siala started Round One of the Ipswich Rugby League U14 competition in the front row, scoring for Ipswich Norths in their 14 – 10 loss to Goodna Black. Larry Siala backed that up by also scoring in Round Two against Springfield as Norths won 44 – 0.

    Larry Siala made it three tries from as many matches when he scored again in Round Three as Norths defeated Brothers Ipswich 24 – 8. Larry Siala also scored in Round Six against Goodna and Round Eight against Ipswich Brothers.

    In total in the 2019 Ipswich Rugby League U14 regular season competition, Larry Siala played in twelve matches scoring eight tries for a 67% strike rate.

    In Week One of the Ipswich Rugby League 2019 U14 Finals Series Larry Siala started in the front row for Norths against Goodna with Norths going down 20 -10. Larry Siala also started in the front row in Week Two of the Finals against Brothers Ipswich being their Preliminary Final victory.

    In the 2019 U14 Ipswich Rugby League Grand Final Larry Siala started in the front row against Goodna Black with Ipswich Norths going down 14 - 12.

    Larry Siala made his Ipswich Rugby League U15 debut in Round Nine of 2019 against Swifts Bluebirds celebrating the occasion by scoring in Norths big 58 – 8 win

    Northern New South Wales youngster Blake Forder is a Titans contracted player who was outstanding for the Titans U16 side that defeated the Newcastle Knights U16 Harold Matthews side 18 – 14 in Port Macquarie in January 2020 in wet and slippery conditions.

    Blake Forder started the match at fullback and was heavily involved in two of the Titans tries, one in each half and one on each side of the field. As a result of the performance, Blake Forder was named the Titans best back in the match. Blake Forder was also acknowledged for his outstanding performance by Titans JTS Co-ordinator Matt Srama in his review of the match in a video on the Titans Official Site after the match.

    Blake Forder’s first try assist came early in the first half when he chimed into the Titans backline on the left side of the field and threw a long cut out pass to his left to his left winger Kobie Mackay-Taylor who was able to dive over in the corner after beating one Knights defender on the way to the line.

    In the second half, Blake Forder’s try assist impressively come on the right side of the field. Blake Forder received the ball whilst running on an angle to his right and straightened up the attack just a fraction before stepping off his left foot to enable him to run parallel the Knights defensive line for just a fraction to draw in two defenders before popping a great ball to his right to the Titans right centre to charge over near the right corner post.

    In 2019 Blake Forder who attends Benora Point High School was selected at fullback for the Lismore Diocese Northern Country U15 rugby league representative side for the NSW CCC trials that were held in Sydney and subsequently was selected in the NSW CCC for the U15 ASSRL Championships that were played at Redcliffe. Blake Forder played a number of matches for the NSW CCC side on the wing in the National Championships and was part of the NSW CCC Championship winning side.

    Blake Forder also represented the Group 18 U15 representative side in 2019, starting at fullback in all of their matches at the 2019 New South Wales Country Age Championships. Blake Forder also represented Group 18 in 2018 at the U14 NSW Country Championships.

    From a club rugby league perspective, Blake Forder played for the Murwillumbah Colts in the 2019 Group 18 U15 competition after moving over from the Bilambil Jets for whom he played for in the Group 18 U14 competition in 2018.
