The Titans have offered Jai Arrow an upgraded four-year deal in the last 24 hours, handing Gold Coast a major boost in retaining the star forwards’ signature.

While the Titans remain hopeful in their pursuit for in-demand star Latrell Mitchell, they are looking to keep Arrow as a priority, upgrading their initial offer for the Maroons forward that could see him stay with the club until the end of the 2024 season.

It is believed that Arrow’s preference is to remain with the Titans, according to

The Titans’ latest offer will be to halt Arrow’s interest from any potential rivals, with the Rabbitohs expected to offer the Queensland forward a deal for the 2021 season and beyond.

If Gold Coast successfully retain Arrow’s services, it will likely mean they are out of the race for Mitchell, given their salary cap restrictions.

On the other hand, if Arrow is to sign for the Rabbitohs for 2021, the Titans could release him a year early on his contract to further boost their chances of landing Mitchell.

Mitchell is believed to tour the Titans’ facilities next week.


  1. With Mitchell trying to play mind games with the Roosters, Tigers, Dogs whom all withdre their offers then the Cowboys, and now his latest victim the Titans.

    However it appears now that the tables have turned with the NQ returning his using tactics to speed up the Holmes signature, now the Spoon Premiers GC Titans have copied the Cows tactical ploy buy using Mitchell to attempt to re-sign Arrow. Like somebody said previously. Souths are struggling to attract anyone. Fifita, Ado-Carr, Arrow and Mitchell have all palmed the team that has poor support, poor defence, poor coaching, no forwards, no home ground and no social gatherings at a Leagues club of their own.

  2. Souths can’t do anything till the NRL make a call on Burgess money, Arrow would be a good pick up and have no doubt would come once an offer is made , same has Latrell, Souths have the most supporters in world rugby league, perhaps that is why Addo carr contacted Souths about coming back, we may have no leagues club but we still make a profit which is far more than all clubs except Broncos can say, plus our centre of excellence will be completed by 2022 something our nearest neighbours will never experience

  3. Arrow is no Sam Burgess but Souths seem so desperate to sign anyone of half his ability, that they are willing to throw a million dollar contract towards Arrow.
    In my opinion he is a 450k player

  4. Arrow coming to Souths.
    BTW Russell Crow’s Rabbitohs cap sold for 400k at fundraising charity for the bushfires appeal.
    I believe at the same time Politis was out the front of easts leagues and couldn’t even give away roosters caps.

  5. If Im the Titans I definitely prefer to keep Arrow then sign Mitchell.
    Brimson looks promising, Kelly is really good at centre and in the other centre spot Watkins is nice. I know the titans need to improve and to do that they should go after young talent but hes really not needed that much.

  6. We definitely need to fill in the Sam void. If not Arrow then who? Surely cant go with the current forwards we have. Tom Burgess and Liam Knight. Need back up better then Mark Nico 丹儭.

  7. Rabbit017 why soufths keep buying duds is beyond me. It looks like a deadset .transit.lounge. with so far a turnover of over 20players.

    Bwhahahah…..Bwahahahahaha! Why they could not sign Rooster and NZ Test enforcer Zane Tetevano is obvious. Good players are avoiding the dump.

  8. Burgess injury is not new and if the NRL are going to be fair to all the other clubs, then his contract money should be counted towards Souths salary cap.

    In saying that regardless if the Nrl cheat the other clubs an allow Souths to get away with what everybody knows as an attempt by the Rabbits to cheat the cap. I cannot possibly see Arrow being attracted to Souths anyway. They do need an aggressive 2nd rower but they desperately need at least one hard nosed prop.

    Their forwards have been found out for the past two seasons in the preliminary final and they are now extremely weakened with Turner, Burgess brothers and Sutton gone. They bombed their chance to buy RCG, & Tetevano so Arrow is certainly of little value to them without decent other additions.

  9. Very proud to see in the media Souths have already raised $4m from memberships (roosters $345k) which will go towards player salaries etc.
    So to the easts wombats on here who bag us for not having a club, we dont need to ruin families with poker machines as the main source of revenue.
    Forever in our shadow.

    “Bourgess injury is not new”

    So Dr Mark.mybutthole we didnt realise you were the consulting specialist who came to this conclusion.
    Just as well Souths seeked a second opinion.
    All good to go with Sam’s money to be announced in conjunction with Latrell’s signing.
    Hey BennyHillsong ,

  11. Tetevano wanted to follow Latrell to Souths and unfortunately for him he was politely advised Souths were looking at other options and wished him well in his future endeavors.
