    Unfortunately these stories are put out time and again but they are not a true reflection of what is happening at the Titans.

    The TEDS program is an outstanding initiative and is already achieving results in terms of bringing Gold Coast juniors home. Two specific examples are Juwan Compain and Will Evans from the Bronco’s and there are more as well.

    No team can keep every junior from their particular area but the Titans are doing an outstanding job of keeping most and that will continue.

    The Titans have signed some talented players from Brisbane such as Ioane Seuili and Tristian Powell (originally from the Darling Downs) and Luke Maiden from Toowoomba as well to supplement the Gold Coast, Group 18 and Northern Rivers youngsters.

    The likes of the Broncos and the Roosters will always recruit from the Gold Coast but with the TEDS programs in place the Titans will continue to get better and better at providing a pathway to the NRL for our local juniors.

    What can not be dismissed is the quality of young players that Jamie McCormack has brought to the club such as Darius Farmer, Ben Thomas and Jackson Paulo who are already near the NRL level and the likes of Bailey Martin, Thomas Weaver, Ben Liyou, Rowan Mansfield, Brody Smitka, Kaleb Ngamanu, Ethan Foster, Ryan Rivett, Ediq Ambrosyev, Lofi Khan-Pereira, the Shannon brothers, Kel Sheather and Blake Campbell amongst others.

    Apologies to the players that I have missed, all deserve to be recognised as do their families for their hard work and dedication regardless of whether they get to the NRL or not.

    ROOSTERS POACH TITAN TALENT

    THE Roosters have thumbed their nose at the Titans in their own backyard.

    The reigning NRL premiers yesterday held a junior academy match on the Gold Coast against Brisbane league nursery Marsden High.

    The Roosters youngsters included some of the Gold Coast’s top young talent, including Palm Beach Currumbin products Josh Bevan, Izzy Higgins and Ethan King.

    King is the son of former Gold Coast first grade player Andrew King.

    The concept was the brainchild of former Titans recruitment manager Jamie Mathiou, who has been poaching some of the region’s best talent for the Roosters.

    The Titans have invested $2 million in an attempt to stop the Gold Coast’s best young talent signing with rival clubs.

    But there is good news.



    GOOD ON YA GOLD COAST

    THUMBS up to the Gold Coast Titans for spreading some cheer at Gold Coast University Hospital this week.

    The Titans handed out gifts and smiles to sick children at the Gold Coast’s biggest hospital on Wednesday.

    “It will be my first Christmas with my little one,” star recruit Tyrone Peachey said.

    “I’d hate for her to be sick. It was awesome to help families with sick kids.”

    Interesting to see Mal has spoken about recruiting young St George hooker Reece Robson.

    Robson is a graduate of the St George Dragons' SG Ball team and was named in both the Australia Schoolboys and New South Wales' Under-18s team in 2016. Robson backed it up in 2017 when he featured for the Junior Kangaroos and New South Wales' Under-20s. In 2018 he won the NSW under 20's player of the year and the dragons ISP player of the year. Was also selected in the prime ministers 13 against Papua New Guinea. Also comes from Murwillumbah.

    With Mitch Rein and Nathan Peats both signed for 2020 I find this Robson thing impractical

    Reece Robson is a special player, sign him if you can and then worry about the rest later.
