A crucial player in their system, AJ Brimson will remain with the Gold Coast Titans until the end of 2022.
Ignoring rival overtures, the recent Australian 9s representative has shown tremendous dynamism and tenacity in his career so far.
New Titans coach Justin Holbrook praised the retention of the talented junior as the side continues to build.
“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.”
With the fullback spot now up for grabs with the retirement of Michael Gordon, Brimson drew even more praise from Holbrook.
“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,” continued the Titans coach.
“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.”
