Titans recruit Bryce Cartwright is set to see out his contract for the Gold Coast and will not move clubs, according to his manager Allan Gainey.
It has been a disappointing season for Cartwright since crossing over from Penrith, who has struggled with poor form and injuries.
Reports recently emerged suggesting that the 23-year old was seeking opportunities elsewhere and that the club had been shopping him around.
Titans coach Garth Brennan denied such rumours to the Courier Mail, claiming that Cartwright’s management was weighing up his client’s options.
The Sea Eagles reportedly had interest in the second-rower, whose uncle, John Cartwright, works for and could help mentor and nurture his nephew back to full form.
But Gainey said Cartwright is staying put and is committed to breaking back into the Titans’ first-grade team.
“I have no issue with Bryce’s commitment, he is just down on confidence and that’s been reflected in his games,” Brennan told the Courier Mail.
“We all know Bryce is a talent, but the ball is now in his court. If he wants to knuckle down and work hard I will pick him, if he’s not going to do that, then I will pick on form, not reputations.”
