Dan Sarginson

The links were there, the connection was made and now it is all confirmed, with the Gold Coast Titans to sign Englishman Dan Sarginson on a 2-year deal from the 2017 season.

Sarginson, who is currently at Super League side, the Wigan Warriors, can cover numerous positions across the back-line if need be.

Still only 22 years of age, Sarginson made his professional debut at age 18 with the London Broncos. Sarginson will join former Wigan player Eddy Pettybourne at the Titans, who was the one that raised the idea of signing Sarginson to coach Neil Henry.

The idea behind joining Wigan was to test himself and Sarginson now wants to take that to the next level. By playing in the NRL.

“I came to Wigan to challenge myself and I really want to take it a step further now and challenge myself in the NRL with a really promising young side in the Gold Coast Titans,” Sarginson said.

“I spoke to Eddy Pettybourne and he said the Titans have a load of promising players and they have started the season really well, and the lifestyle is a lot different to here so I’m excited about that.

“I want to cement my positon in the England squad and I think playing in the NRL with the Gold Coast will help me do that and Eddy says the coaching staff are unbelievable, so I’m really looking forward to it.”

An English Test representative, the utility back played for England in the 2014 Four Nations tournament and surprisingly, was actually born in Perth before moving to England at a young age.

As for the man who endorsed him to Neil Henry and the club, Eddy Pettybourne, he is keen to see how the Englishman performs during his time at the club and praised his ability.

“I was very impressed with him when I was at Wigan,” he said. “He’s pretty quick, has good footwork and is very strong for his size.

“But also he trains hard and is willing to listen and learn and I think he’ll go to another level in Australia.”
