Gold Coast officially unveiled the signing of schoolboy sensation Toby Sexton on Tuesday on a three-year deal.
The Queensland Under-18s five-eighth joins the club after a string of successes having already claimed the Mal Meninga Cup and the National U-18s title.
The Gold Coast’s struggles have been well documented in 2019 and the promise of the rising star will be a beneficial addition to the Titans’ roster. Sexton will join the squad when Jason Holbrook takes over in the pre-season, in what the Titans will hope is a better year than the current one.
Sexton will play for the Australian Schoolboys against the Kiwis in September and Titans executive chairman Denis Watt is excited for his new player’s prosperous future with the club.
“Toby is obviously highly regarded for his playing ability, and he was on the radar of other NRL clubs, but we are delighted that he has chosen to commit to the Titans,” Watt told the club’s website.
“Importantly for us, we are not only getting a quality young player, but an impressive and humble young man who is dedicated to his family, teammates and community. He brings all of the qualities that we look for in a Titan.
“Toby is as excited about the future of the Titans as we are about his, and he is determined to play his part in seeing his local team rise to the top of the NRL.
“I am sure all of our Members and fans will join me in welcoming Toby to the Club.”
The Titans play the Eels this week on Friday night.
