Anthony Don has today signed a new two-year deal with the Gold Coast Titans which will see him remain at the club until the end of 2020.

This news follows the Titans outstanding performance against the Warriors last weekend in what has been an up and down season for the Gold Coast team.

Since making his debut in 2013, Don has been one of the Titans most consistent players, making 106 NRL appearances and scoring 63 tries.

Don’s best season to date came in 2017 when he was selected to represent Country Origin for the first time, as well as taking out the clubs prestigious ‘Player of the Year’ award.

After much speculation surrounded the wingers playing career, Don opted to stay on the Gold Coast after receiving many lucrative offers from rival clubs.

Don told Titans.com.au he loves being apart of the club and the lifestyle the Gold Coast has to offer.

“They gave me a chance as a 25-year-old and it’s been great to represent my local region at NRL level,” Don told NRL Media. 

“I’ve enjoyed every minute with the Titans. We’ve got a great bunch of guys here and after performances like last weekend, I know we have the potential to do something special over the next few years.”

Don has played in all 19 games for the Titans this season, scoring 11 tries, making nine line breaks and racking up a total of 1819 running metres.

Coach Gareth Brennan is very happy Don has decided to remain a Titan.

“I’ve said before how much Anthony means to this football club,” Brennan said.

“He is Mr. Reliable on that right wing and we all know that each week he will go out there and do his job for the team.

“He is someone the members and fans love and he’s a player that I enjoy coaching. You always know what you’re going to get, and I can trust him to play his role.”

A favourite amongst the die hard Titans fans, Don has given them something to cheer about in a 2018 season which hasn’t gone quite gone to plan for Brennan’s men.

CEO Graham Annesley understands just how much Don means to the club.

“Anthony is not only an outstanding winger but he is one of the most genuine people you’ll ever meet,” Annesley said.

“He not only does outstanding work on the field, he also makes a huge contribution off the field giving back to the local community and his home town of Grafton.

“It’s great news for the club that Anthony has decided to remain a Titan for a further two years.”

  1. I am happy that he is staying with the Titans but I hope they are paying him more than the reported offer they made him.
