QLD Cup Grand Final star Tony Francis has re-committed to the Gold Coast Titans for a further two seasons, inking a contract extension on Friday.

Francis is coming off a magnificent performance for the Burleigh Bears in the QLD Cup Grand Final in which he scored a hat-trick but was unable to walk away with the win.

He will enter the Gold Coast Titans Top 30 squad for the 2024 season after previously being on the club's development list. Aiming to make his NRL debut in the upcoming season, he enters the Top 30 having played 42 games in reserve grade in the past two seasons.

The young outside back will have to contend with the likes of Keano Kini, Brian Kelly, Aaron Schoupp, Phillip Sami and good friend Alofiana Khan-Pereira for a starting position in the backline.

Returning to pre-season on the Gold Coast in November, he was chosen in the Tonga A team squad and is in contention to play for the team when they take on New Zealand A on October 21.

His signature means the Gold Coast Titans now have no available spots on their Top 30 roster for the 2024 season.
