The club released a short statement confirming Fogarty’s departure.
Fogarty left the Burleigh Bears at the end of 2016 after signing with Parramatta but has made the decision to return to the Gold Coast and play out the season with Burleigh.
After playing in the halves for Eels feeder club Wentworthville in Round 13, Fogarty made the move back to the Coast during the week and slotted straight back into the Burleigh number 7 jersey to help guide the Bears to a much-needed win.
“He only got back on Friday night, trained with us in the captain’s run and played Saturday,” Bears coach Jim Lenihan said.
“He probably wouldn’t have played, but Harry Siejka pulled up with a hamstring issue. So, with Harry out there was an opportunity to pull him in so we went with it.”
Fogarty has been named as a reserve for the Gold Coast Titans this week.

Jamal joined the Eels at the beginning of the 2017 pre-season from the Queensland Cup Burleigh Bears.
We thank him for his contribution to the Blue & Gold and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
