In a surprise move, Brian Canavan will take his skills and expertise North, joining the Gold Coast Titans as their newly appointed Chief Operating Officer.
Canavan, noted mostly for his efforts and time with the Sydney Roosters, has been lauded as a significant off-field signing for the Titans.
â€œBrian is not only an experienced Rugby League administrator, he is also a quality individual who will further add to the public credibility of this club as we continue to rebuild and improveâ€, Titans CEO Mr Graham Annesley said.
â€œOver the course of his 18 years at the Roosters, Brian has been an integral part of the management of one of the most successful clubs in the game. His acquisition by the Titans is as important as any other made in the clubâ€™s short history.â€
The exact time-frame in which Canavan will start is still unknown, but the Titans hope to have him on board once his relocation from Sydney is complete.
