The Gold Coast Titans have confirmed the signing of Jai Arrow from the Brisbane Broncos for the next three seasons.
Arrow, a Burleigh Bears junior, will return to the Gold Coast in season 2018, looking for a chance to play NRL on a regular basis.
The 22-year-old made his NRL debut for the Broncos in Round 10 of season 2016 against the Sea-Eagles and has gone on to play 19 matches at the top level.
Coach Neil Henry is excited about the arrival of Arrow.
“Jai is a local product who is returning home and looking to further his NRL experience at the Titans,” Henry said. “He is an outstanding competitor who prides himself on his high work rate and will add greatly to our depth in the forwards.
“I hope to see Jai as a regular member of our NRL team for many years to come.”
CEO Graham Annesley is pleased to have Arrow joining the club.
“The acquisition of Jai is another important building block in the evolution of our roster,” Annesley said. “It’s great for the club and the city to once again have a local junior returning to the Coast.
“It is a great show of confidence in the future of the Titans in realising our potential as a force in the NRL.”
