Off-contract Titans cult figure Anthony Don is being courted by the Bulldogs, Sharks and Rabbitohs as his future remains up in the air, according to the Gold Coast Bulletin.

The 30-year old has become a fan favourite amongst Gold Coast supporters following his impressive rise from the Grafton Ghosts. He made his debut for the Titans in 2013 and has played a total of 101 NRL games and scored 60 tries.

Gold Coast have a two-year offer on the table to Don that is reportedly worth less than the $180,000 deal he is currently on.

Meanwhile, all three Sydney clubs are reportedly also offering two-year deals that trump Gold Coast’s proposal and may entice Don to leave the club.

Don has proved to be one of the great budget players in the league in recent times, enjoying a breakout season in 2017 that earned him a NSW Country representative position and Titans player of the year honours.

The Titans are reportedly happy with their offer considering the winger’s injury history and age. He told the Bulletin earlier this season that his preference was to remain a Titan, but is “open to the idea of moving”.

“My negotiations have been fairly different,” Don told the Bulletin.

“I’ve always preferred to stay on the Gold Coast, so I’ve always just gone to the club and seen where they were at and get something done pretty quickly.

“I haven’t really talked to any other clubs in my career.

“I love the Titans and I love the Gold Coast, so if it happens (that I can stay), that’d be great.

“But we’re in an industry where you can get moved on pretty quickly, so you’ve got to be open to the idea of moving. You’d love to stay but you might have to go.”

  1. This is why the Titans are bottom of the ladder. There recruitment is pathetic. They have plenty of money for non performers like Cartwright and Hurrell. They have NFI.

  2. If it is true (only a made up rumour at the moment) does it mean that Souths have given-up on Jennings? I hear he was offered huge cash to go to the Eels. Souths have been silent on recruitment as always so we have heard nothing about Jennings, Hunt, Tatola and Fuimaono. Any other Souths fan know anything?

  3. Such un underrated player one of the safest under a bomb and a flashy finisher and just an allround good guy. Keyword here being fan favourite, what an insulting reported offer for him Titans board taking advantage of his desire to remain at the club will force him to leave (Minichello how did he go?? And still going). No wonder our club are losing fans

  4. Forget about Anthony Don joining the Rabbitohs that won’t happen.
    The Dogs and the Sharks are also supposed to be interested in him.

    I severely doubt the Rabbitohs would waste over $200k on a 30-year old when we will have so many youngsters whom will require re-signing and upgrading in the Future!

    The Rabbitohs have…
    * Corey Allan next season from the Shoncs. He is the Current Junior Kangaroos Fullback.
    * Mawene Hiroti, a Utility back, Wing, Centre, Fullback a Junior Kiwi.
    * Jesse Arthars former U20s player of the year from the Storm.
    * Campbell Graham is well established in the NRL now and he will eventually be our left side centre in the future but he is happy on the Right Wing at the moment and he is a certain starter in the 13 every week and for many years to come.

    So there are the 4 youngsters plus we have Johnston, Inglis, Gagai and Jennings so the Rabbitohs have plenty of depth in our back 5.
    Braidon Burns as a depth player also.

    Souths currently have 9 players signed up for 2019 in the Outside backs.
    10 players are required for Our Top 30.
    I am not sure what will happen with Hymel Hunt and Jacob Gagan who remain unsigned.

    We also have 2 very good youngsters currently at Norths who may be considered as development players next season.
