Tyrone Peachey signs with Gold Coast Titans

The Gold Coast Titans have announced the signing of Penrith Panthers utility Tyrone Peachey on a three-year deal, commencing in 2019.

Peachey was originally contracted with the Panthers until the end of 2019 but was given permission by the club to explore his options.

The 26-year-old has played 92 NRL matches and also represented City Origin and the Indigenous All-Stars.

Having worked with Peachey previously, Head Coach Garth Brennan is excited about having the Wellington junior on the Gold Coast.

“Tyrone is a player that is versatile and also very skilful,” Brennan said. “He is a player that when he gets the ball in his hands, people in the crowd stand up and watch.

“He’s been on the edge of higher representative honours and I think he will add another dimension to this side in 2019.

“I’m looking forward to him joining the club next year.”

CEO Graham Annesley is pleased with the addition of Peachey to the 2019 squad.

“Although Tyrone won’t be with us until next season, his signing demonstrates the club has a long-term plan for success,” Annesley said.

“This is another major coup for the club and is a further indication that quality experienced players recognise the tremendous potential of the Titans.”

  2. I thought Garth Brennan wasn’t going to sign any Panthers players yet many of them went with him? Haha

  3. For all of his good attacking play at times. Peachey is a poor defender. He ranked 29 in defence out of all centres last year. Whether playing centre or anywhere else, that has not changed in his time at Penrith over the last four or so years. Can’t see how Brennan is going to change that? In fact Brennan’s coaching in the ISP last year showed he will just get rid of players if they don’t perform well enough. Fair enough also! It worked for Penrith’s ISP team last year.
    As for a replacement at Penrith? Wallace is retiring at the end of this coming season. Peachey, possibly Mansour gone. Add that to all the first graders that have already gone.They must have a mountain of salary cap money to spend now. Do the maths. Players will go anywhere is there is enough money on offer. They went to Newcastle. I’m not sure the coach there Brown is the greatest coach ever?
    Do hear at Penrith , Gould is doing a lot more of the coaching himself now.
    Also that Des Hasler has been seen there a few times. Love him or hate him. He originally came from Penrith. His record in coaching speaks for itself!

  4. where would you rather live , in penrith sydneys western suburbs , or in the glitter strip the gold coast i know where i live
    also josh mansour reading a story on foxsports nrl seeming 2018 will be his last year @ penrith as well mail is around
    he wants out @ years end but rumor is he looks like being in a blue & white jersey next year

  5. All that glitters is not gold. Gold Coast may have great beaches, but how long will it have a football team for? They come & go all the time.
    If Mansour is in Blue & White or Blue & Gold next year. He’s still in the west of Sydney.
    You do have a point though. Have often thought Penrith should take up the Central Coast offer. Do off season training out of the central coast. Play games in the Central Coast & Penrith. In the same style as St.George does with the Illawarra. Would give them even more juniors to choose from. Wouldn’t Newcastle love that.
