Gold Coast’s five-eighth Kane Elgey is one of five players lining up for the Titans this weekend that are yet to sign on with the club beyond this year.

Manager Chris Orr says Elgey has had interest from three Super League teams and three rival NRL clubs but the Titans are yet to make any move with him.

On Wednesday Jack Stockwell signed on for next year but Brenko Lee, Dale Copley, Keegan Hipgrave, Mitch Rein and Anthony Don who lines up for his 100th game this weekend are all yet to sign contracts for next season.

Copley is believed to have been offered a contract for 2019 but hasn’t given the Titans an answer yet.

Hipgrave would like to stay at the club but is keeping his options open while Rein is negotiating an upgrade to his current deal.

The Titans are likely to wait out the season before offering Lee a new deal.

Elgey has played in Queensland’s Intrust Super Cup for Tweed Heads since round seven and is unlikely to stay with the club due to interest from the Super League.

His manager says the 24-year-old would like to remain at the club but he’s considering taking deals with Warrington or Catalans Dragons who have already approached him.

“There’s been no progression on Kane. His management is out there testing the market, they’ll come back to us, we know there is some interest in Kane,” coach Garth Brennan told titans.com.au.

“Donny is a fan favourite and a favourite of mine, so we’ll sit down with Donny’s management and see if we can keep him on board a bit longer.

“We’re waiting on Dale and there are some offers out on Keegan at the moment but we’re keen for him to stay. So we’ll hopefully get a few guys across the line an in the next few weeks.”

  1. Tigers should make a play for Mitch Rein before June 30th
    Much better than what they have at the moment.

  2. Elgey is just 1 player who got his tyres pumped up way to early and is not a 1st grader.
    Cartwright and Hess are in the same boat.

  3. Cowboys could make a swap deal for Coote and Elgey. Coote would provide a better fullback and more long term than Gordon. Elgey to the Cowboys would compete with Martin as the five-eight of the future and vacated the fullback for Holmes who looks like he wants to make the move north. Plus Elgey would be on a lot less coin than Coote with more long term potential as well

  4. Elgey looked promising until he spent a year out injured and then just couldn’t seem to play at first grade standards. Absolutely terrible defender, even worse than Cartwright and offers very little in offense.

    If Titans were to get Coote my guess is he would partner Taylor, I think finding a competent halves partner is their priority. Their forward pack is pretty good, they just need to fix up a few positions and they could become a threat.
