Linked to numerous clubs across the NRL, Jarrod Wallace has made a decision to remain with the Gold Coast Titans.
The new deal will see the Runaway Bay junior to stay at the Titans until the end of the 2022 season.
Exercising his option to stay for 2019, Wallace’s new deal starts from the 2020 season.
With 102 total games and 29 as a Titan, Wallace is keen to add to that and is proud of where he has come from.
“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 said.
“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.”
Wallace is just pleased to stay at the club and to continue working under coach Garth Brennan.
“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,” Wallace continued.
“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.”
The Origin representative is a handy player for the Titans forward stocks and Brennan is pleased to see him stay.
“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.”
