Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs youngster Aiden Sezer and not controversial Roosters star Todd Carney shapes as the man to succeed Scott Prince as Gold Coast Titans halfback.
The Titans signed Sezer, 20, several months ago as the new face for the halves because of Mat Rogers’ departure at the end of 2010 and the imminent retirement of Preston Campbell.
Todd Carney, who has been told by the Roosters he will not get another game this year after yet another off-field drama, has been linked with a number of NRL clubs, UK Superleague side Catalans Dragons in France and rugby union.
On Sunday there was speculation the Titans would enter the race for Carney’s signature, but the club’s football manager Scott Clark refuted that idea last night.
“It is nothing more than a rumour,” Clark said. Scott Prince is not going anywhere and we have not been talking to Carney or his manager.
“We have the halves well covered next year with Princey, Sezer, Beau Henry, Jordan Rankin, Greg Bird and the like.”
Sezer made the 2010 Toyota Cup Team of the Year and was named in the Junior Kangaroos squad to play the Junior Kiwis, but was forced to withdraw through injury.
