Titans sign Brenko Lee after Bulldogs release

The Gold Coast Titans have confirmed the signing of Brenko Lee for season 2018.

Lee has today been released from the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and will join the Titans in the New Year.

The 22-year-old has played 33 matches at NRL level since debuting for the Canberra Raiders in Round 15 of season 2014. He has also been a part of a number of representative sides, including Tonga, Queensland under 20s, Junior Kangaroos and the Emerging Queensland Origin squad.

The Logan Brothers junior is returning to south-east Queensland and will boost the outside backs stocks for the 2018 campaign.

“Brenko is a young player who has played NRL football for a number of years,” Head Coach Garth Brennan said.

“He is returning home to south-east Queensland so we hope him being comfortable at home will help him play his best football.

“We have had a number of changes to the squad and he’ll definitely help us in the outside backs.”

    • Elgey showed promise a couple of seasons ago before spending an extended period on the sidelines with injury. He also looked good in the 9’s at the start of the year. He may yet come good but I agree, the Titans need to have a Plan B. Too bad they couldn’t poach Cameron Munster from the Storm as Taylor and Munster will be the Next-Gen QLD halves pairing for some time to come.

  3. Great signing by the Titans! I’m still holding out hope that the Titans make a play for Carlin Anderson (Cowboys) or Zac Santo (Warriors), Jamayne Issako (who won’t get a chance this season at the Broncos thanks to Bennett), Edrick Lee (Sharks), Cameron Cullen (Sea Eagles), Matt Parcell (Leeds).

    With that their line up could be:

    1. Anderson (QLD) or Santo (QLD)
    2. E. Lee (QLD)
    3. Hurrell (NZ)
    4. Issako (NZ)
    5. B. Lee (QLD)
    6. Cullen (QLD)
    7. Taylor (QLD)
    8. Latu (NZ)
    9. Parcell (NZ)
    10. Boyle (NSW)
    11. James (NSW)
    12. Proctor (NZ)
    13. Wallace (QLD)

    I think that would give the Titans a good balance of:
    – QLD, NZ and NSW players
    – speed and go forward in the centre and wing positions
    – speed and creativity in their halves, hooker and fullback positions
    – size and go forward in their forward pack.
