The Gold Coast Titans have confirmed the signing of Michael Gordon.
The Tweed junior has played 225 NRL games since debuting back in 2006 for the Penrith Panthers and will be looking to make the fullback position his own in 2018.
Gordon arrives on the Gold Coast from the Sydney Roosters on a two-year deal, with the 34-year-old excited about the opportunity to play at the Titans.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to return home and to play for the Titans,” Gordon said.
“I had a good conversation with Garth and the future looks bright.
“I hope I can contribute and be part of a successful club here on the Gold Coast.”
Head Coach Garth Brennan is pleased he has been able to bolster his squad with such an experienced player.
“Michael is a player that everyone loves playing with and is the ultimate professional in every aspect of the game,” Brennan said.
“We have a number of young players in the squad and Michael will help them with their development as well as be a leader amongst the group.”
“His experience, as well as his ability as a goal kicker, will make him a valuable commodity here at the Titans.”
