The Gold Coast Titans today announced the signing of Chris Grevsmuhl, for two seasons, through until the end of 2018.

Grevsmuhl was released from his Penrith Panthers contract in November of last year due to personal issues and the Titans have been working with the 24-year-old over recent weeks to set-up the appropriate support network around him so he can produce his best football for the club.

The Townsville Brothers junior made his NRL debut in Round 1 of season 2015 and has since gone on to make 43 appearances at the top level, scoring 10 tries.

Head Coach Neil Henry has previously worked with Grevsmuhl when at the North Queensland Cowboys and is convinced that the former Panther and Rabbitoh should be given the opportunity to resurrect his NRL career.

“Chris has obviously had some personal issues that he has had to deal with over the last few months and as a club we’ve taken our time to work with him to get the best results for everyone,” Henry said.

“Whilst we know the talents Chris has on the field, we will continue to assist him in all areas of his life, both on and off the field.”

CEO Graham Annesley believes Chris will benefit from the Titans environment.

“Chris will be given the opportunity to prove his capacity to fit in with the Titans culture and become a valuable contributor as we continue to rebuild,” Annesley said.

“If he shows the necessary character and commitment required he certainly has the ability to be very successful,” Annesley concluded.


  1. When at Souths Chris was great in attack but lazy in defence. That’s why he had a run-in with Madge. I wish him good luck for the future.

  2. Nice quiet location for him to settle down and concentrate on footy
    He will get all the beer oops I mean support he needs at the Gold Coast

  3. FOR SALE! Grevsmuhl “maverick”

    Second hand needs a lot of work. Four different owners in 4 years, only 24 years old but low mileage (only 43 first grade games in the last 3 years). Can’t tackle hills or anything requiring too much effort but likes to coast down hill with the handbrake off. As new, hardly used.

  4. I swap him for a winger ,,, he’s good , bit o mileage though , handy but not good under the high ball , or low ball ,

  5. Good to see the Knights are sticking to their no D head policy instead of just buying everyone available.
