Michael Gordon will retire at the end of the NRL season, and will do so after 14 seasons and 257 first grade games.

Gordon joined the Titans in 2018, and has been one of the club’s most senior players over the past two years, and retires as the club’s most experienced player.

The 35-year-old played for Penrith, Cronulla, Parramatta and Sydney before moving to the Gold Coast, as well as playing one State of Origin game for the Blues in 2010.

Gordon spoke to the club’s website about his decision to retire, and believes it was the right time to hang up the boots.

“I have been very fortunate to have enjoyed the career that I have, to have played at some wonderful clubs, and to have shared time with wonderful friends and teammates over the past 14 seasons,” Gordon told titans.com.au.

“I am very proud to be a Titan and very grateful to the Gold Coast for giving me the chance to finish my career by representing the region I started with as an under-7 with the Tweed Coast Raiders many years ago.

“I am also very thankful to the Titans fans and my teammates for supporting me over the past two years, and I’m similarly thankful to all the guys I played alongside and the fans that supported me at my other clubs over the years.

“I am excited about the road ahead of me in life after football, and also excited for the bright future ahead for the Gold Coast Titans.”
