Titans forward Jarrod Wallace has today agreed to extend his deal with the Titans, tying him to the club until the end of the 2022 season.

The 26-year old exercised his option for 2019, whole also accepting the club's offer to remain a Titan for a further three seasons.

Wallace has played 102 NRL games and has represented Queensland in the State of Origin. He previously played for the Broncos between 2012-16, but has found a home up on the Gold Coast.

"Ever since I came to the Coast I've said how proud I am to represent where I come from and nothing has changed in that regard," Wallace told the club's website.

"It's a great bunch of boys we've got here and whilst we're not in the greatest position at present, I really feel as though we're building towards something special in the future.

"Garth is making some good calls and I'm looking forward to being part of it.

"I know that this process has gone back and forth a bit but there have been a number of factors at play across the board. It was an odd position to be in where I had the option for next year but also was happy to extend my stay.

"I'm extremely happy with the outcome and the fact I can stay a Titan."

Coach Garth Brennan was delighted to have Wallace on board for the club's long-term future.

"My priority was to always keep Jarrod on the Coast," Brennan said.

"He's a local product and a quality front rower. It's great that he'll be here long-term.

"It's great that we've been able to retain a player of Jarrod's quality and I look forward to continue working with him in the future."

Club CEO Graham Annesley is also pleased Wallace will remain on the Gold Coast.

"Everyone in the club is glad Jarrod has decided to extend his time with us. He is a great club man and he is very popular with players, staff, sponsors and members," Annesley said.

"Jarrod is a local junior and his re-signing is another great signal of the value we place in the strength of our own production line."
