Gold Coast junior and Australian 9s representative AJ Brimson has delivered another show of faith in the Titans’ future by re-signing with the Club until the end of the 2022 season.
One of the most in-demand young players in the game, Brimson recently represented at the World 9s tournament in Sydney, as well as the Junior Kangaroos in their international against France.
Titans Head Coach Justin Holbrook said Brimson’s retention was an important step forward for the Club.
“It is terrific news that AJ will be with us again until the end of 2022,” Holbrook said. “AJ is a perfect example of the Titans production line in action – a local junior who came through the Club’s development system to play NRL in his hometown.
“AJ’s story is not unique to the Club, because we are lucky to have a lot of local juniors here who have followed that path.
“But certainly AJ is another example of the template that we will use to take the Titans forward on the back of the best talent produced in the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers region.
“AJ is an exceptional young player as we all know, highlighted by the fact he is now on the radar of representative selectors. But importantly he is also an impressive young man, a quality human being who has a passion for this club and his community.”
After the retirement of Michael Gordon, Brimson is looking to establish himself as the Titans’ first-choice fullback in 2020.
The 21-year-old is a product of Keebra Park State High School. After making his debut for the Club in Round 10 of 2018, Brimson now has 36 NRL games to his credit.
