Titans add Kelly to 2013 training squad

Kelly added to Titans training squad

The Gold Coast Titans have thrown former Cronulla Sharks back Albert Kelly an NRL lifeline, signing the utility on a part-time trial deal.

Kelly has not played in the NRL since 2011 and was sacked midway through the 2012 campaign by the Sharks following a string of off-field incidents.

The 21-year-old, who can play halfback or fullback, then trained with the Newcastle Knights but had his NSW Cup contract torn up in June after smashing a light at a Newcastle nightclub.

Kelly is the third off-season recruit for the Titans with 19-year-old English fullback Matt Russell signing a two-year deal while former Canberra lower-grade prop Mark Ioane has signed a one-year deal.

All three will join Queensland representative David Taylor as new faces at the club when the Titans' pre-season begins on November 5.
