The Gold Coast Titans confirm that Jarryd Hayne and the club have mutually agreed to a release from the final year of Jarryd’s contract.

Jarryd has expressed his gratitude for the opportunity the Titans provided him during his time with the club.

"The last 16 months have been testing and joyful all wrapped up into one. I thank the Titans members, fans, Board, staff and players for what they have done for me and my family over that time, with special mention Rebecca Frizelle, Graham Annesley and Anthony Laffranchi,” Hayne said today.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time on the coast, I love the community and the laid-back lifestyle. I thank every person, fan and sponsor that I ‘ve met during my time here and wish the Titans all the best in 2018.”

Titans Chief Executive, Graham Annesley, said that Jarryd is one of the biggest names in the game and recruiting him last year had demonstrated the Titans can compete with any other club in the game for marquee players.

“There is no doubt his signing was the biggest coup in the Titans short history, and although it hasn’t worked out as everyone had hoped, including Jarryd, the club has benefited in many ways from his presence. We wish Jarryd nothing but the best for his future both on and off the field,” Annesley concluded.
