Gold Coast Titans utility Tyrone Peachey has declared the 2019 season as the toughest of his career.

The 28-year was close to leaving the Titans at the end of the season after a disappointing campaign both from the club’s perspective and a personal standpoint.

Gold Coast endured a tough year, sacking coach Garth Brenan halfway through the season on their way to the wooden spoon.

“It was definitely a down year, probably the toughest season I’ve had in first grade,” he told NRL.com.

“Definitely did learn a lot, grew from that. The Titans supported me all the way through it. I kind of owe it to them to have a good year, definitely looking forward to it.”

However, sights are set high for 2020, according to Peachey, who has just welcomed a baby girl into the world with his partner.

“It’s been a good year. New coach, we’ve just had another little girl, she’s born on the Gold Coast. That’s something special to me.

“Hopefully we have a big year and do something special.

When asked by NRL.com what his goals are for 2020, Peachey jokingly responded: “Probably not get the wooden spoon again.”

He continued: “Top eight is always a goal, we just want to take it week by week and hopefully improve every game and try to do better than what we did last year.”

  1. He will try to renege on his contract and ditch the poor old Titans within a month.
    “I’m homesick. Boohoo.”

  2. Was a SOO rep player before he left penrith. Doubt he will get another shot at it playing at the titans. Just goes to show the grass is not always greener on the other side. Wonder if the same fate awaits latrell?

  3. It’s at one time when the superior option was to stay at the Panthers. He was more highly regarded, happier, playing rep games.

  4. Ok, now this is going to hurt… I agree EOD, he should have stayed at the Panthers. He seemed much happier and was definitely playing better footy.

    Now that is enough, 2 nice comments about the Panthers in 1 day will do I think 😉

  5. Happy players are better players. Hopefully for you eels47 rcg is in a good frame if mind at parra. All the articles I’ve seen with RCG he seems very happpy, it would be nice to see him back at he’s best

  6. It’s interesting Toddy, that RCG comes out with all this wasn’t happy at Penrith last year stuff now . After Penrith didn’t actually want him there any longer. Last year it was all about , ‘PenrIth & the coach have gone off me now’. When it was because he wasn’t doing the job well, that he was supposed to do. I hope he stops backing into the defence.

  7. GNR Back in 2010 Warriors and Titans played against each other in the qualifying finals after Titans finished 4th Warriors 5th, Titans won. They lost to Roosters after that. Backed it up 2011 to take the spoon. 2009 and 2010 Titans were a force 3 and 4 finishes and one win away from the gf. I hope Holbrook brings that joy back to our supporters.
