Titans hooker Nathan Friend joins Warriors

Gold Coast Titans hooker Nathan Friend will today sign a two-year-deal with the New Zealand Warriors. There is also an option for a third year.

The Warriors will stage a media conference this afternoon where they will confirm Friend, 30, will join the club at the end of the season.

Friend has been with the Titans since the Gold Coast returned to the NRL in 2007 and has made more appearances for the club than anyone else.

Last Friday night’s loss to the Cowboys was Friend’s 97th match for the Titans.

Friend dropped a bombshell last week when he revealed he was considering leaving the Titans at the end of the season after attracting offers from other clubs.
