Former Titans utility Tyrone Roberts has agreed to terms on a new two-year deal to return to the Gold Coast until the end of the 2020 season.
The 27-year old signed a three-year deal with the English Super League’s Warrington Wolves in 2016-17, but has sought an early release after just one season abroad.
Titans coach Gareth Brennan was excited about the versatility Roberts will bring back to his team.
“Tyrone is a very good half but will also add that real utility value to our squad and the fact he can play six, seven, nine or one makes him such a valuable commodity to have,” Brennan told titans.com.au.
“He’s played a number of representative matches and has been a seasoned NRL player for well over five years, so he knows what it takes to compete at the top.
“Tyrone’s been part of a successful club overseas who just qualified for the Challenge Cup final at Wembley so the experience he has gained in his short time over in England will be extremely valuable to bring back to our young squad.
“He has many friends still at the club and I know he’ll settle back in without any issues.”
The former Knight brings 135 NRL games worth of experience to Brennan’s young side and is capable of playing a variety of positions, including fullback, five-eighth, hooker or halfback.
Titans CEO Graham Annesley was also elated with the Roberts signing.
“Tyrone offers great value, bringing all the skills and ability of an experienced NRL player,” Annesley told titans.com.au.
“He was also a very popular member of the squad during his previous two-year stint with the Titans, so it’s great to have him back on-board next season.”
