    I knew Arrow would be good but not to the level you are referring. He's a modern day prime Ash Harro in the making.

    Great point HS on the topic of Elgey's loyalty to the Titans. Also a measure we should apply ongoing into the future.

    Plans for more NRL games at Marley Brown
    https://www.gladstoneobserver.com.au/

    IF MAYOR Matt Burnett gets his way, Gladstone will be hosting regular NRL matches as early as next year.
    Following the huge success of the Gold Coast Titans and Manly Sea Eagles clash at Marley Brown Oval on Sunday, Cr Burnett told The Observer preparations are under way to create a master plan for the grounds within the next 12 months.

    With the aim to attract state and federal government funding for the upgrade, Cr Burnett said improved facilities could allow Gladstone to host up to two NRL matches a year.

    Sunday's game and the week leading up to it proved we have the facilities and certainly the community will to host more games at Marley Brown.

    "The (Marley Brown Master) plan will factor in all the modifications we need to make the field, grounds, car park, grandstands and other facilities attractive to the NRL to host regular games here."

    The plan would include details on the location of field, where to put future grandstands, what they will cost and how many people the ground will be able to hold.

    Cr Burnett said the success of Sunday's game, which attracted more than 5000 people, showed selling tickets at a game at an expanded venue would not be a problem.

    "We sold 5000 tickets for the game, and in the week leading up to the game we could have sold another 5000," Cr Burnett said.

    "People came from all over Central Queensland to watch the match, meet the players and attend the clinics, we definitely have the numbers to regularly host future NRL games here."

    Cr Burnett said the NRL was impressed with how smoothly everything went before, during and after the game.

    "Anyone attending the game will attest to how well organised it was, and we proved that Gladstone has ultimate league field for Queensland," he said.

    He was keen to build on the success of the event particularly for future generations of local rugby fans.

    "One personal highlight of the weekend was seeing the kids come from all over the region to attend the coaching clinics," he said.
    "The first clinic sold out, then we extended it and that one sold out as well, but we still had kids swarming down to the field just to watch the players."

    He said interest from younger players alone was a worthwhile reason to bring future NRL games to the city.

    "There's no reason why Gladstone couldn't become a regular fixture for future games, we've proven we've got the facilities and the backing of the community, we will get them back," he said.

    Glad tidings as Titans host away from Coast
    http://www.couriermail.com.au

    IT HAS been a Titans charm offensive. While Prince Charles has been watching the Campbell sisters and Kurt Fearnley do the Commonwealth proud, a forced exit from the Gold Coast’s Robina home, has been a blessing in disguise for the Titans.

    The youngest club in the NRL has travelled 1512km to play “home” games in Toowoomba and Gladstone. Surf and sand traded in for cattle stations and mines.

    During that time, 21 Titans players reached 1150 people across the two regions through hospital visits, junior league clinics, small business events and throwing their training sessions open to the locals.

    With the reception the players received, it could have been mistaken as a royal tour.

    With Dan Murphy’s and Bunnings stores dwarfing either end of Marley Brown Oval at Gladstone, the elite players from Manly and the Gold Coast put on one hell of a show.

    They ran out of a modest change room, dodging the makeshift television cables and out on to a ground where blokes hung over the fence with XXXX Gold cans in stubby holders.

    One of the highlights was Daly Cherry-Evans kicking a penalty goal that landed on the roof of the leagues club.
    The Titans loved it.

    Gladstone’s first NRL game coincided with the town’s centenary of rugby league.

    In an email to the Fox League team, Lance and Vicki Backer who own Ocean Tyres, expressed their joy at seeing the Gold Coast running around in their backyard.

    “What a weekend for the Gladstone region who have embraced the Gold Coast Titans as their team!!” the Backers said.
    They even offered to hand over a set of tyres for Kevvie Walters’ Datsun 180B.
    Getting into these communities has done wonders for the Gold Coast.

    Seeing Titans jumpers scattered throughout the crowd, has been welcome for a club that’s struggled to capture the hearts and minds of its supporter base.

    There was no doubt the sell-out crowd of 5135 in Gladstone was right behind the Titans. Those close to the club are convinced it was players’ willingness to get into the community that contributed to it.

    “It felt like a home game, and it was electric out there and I’d love to come back and hope they have us again.” captain Ryan James said after the match.

    The Titans are the only Queensland team in the top eight.

    The Hayne experiment is over, and they look like a side who like to play together and want to win together.

    The Gold Coast might have just recaptured their mojo, and all they needed was a trip up the M1 to where rugby league lives and breathes to find it.
