On the back of a re-emergence of sorts in 2020, Brian Kelly’s tenure at the Gold Coast Titans will continue.
The talented centre has signed a new deal with the Titans until the end of the 2023 season.
His form was so good that Kelly took out the Paul Broughton Medal, the award for the Titans best and fairest.
With six tries in sixteen games for the Titans in 2020, he was praised by coach Justin Holbrook for his form and ability.
“I think it is fantastic news for our Club that Brian Kelly is going to continue his career here,” Justin Holbrook said.
“It’s great having a young player that grew up in Northern New South Wales, in Ballina.
“It means a lot to him to stay at this Club and it means a lot to us to keep him here.”
Holbrook sees Kelly as a strike centre and believes that the re-signing is a good sign for all Titans fans.
“He’s shown in particular last season what a strike centre he is, one of the best in the competition,” Holbrook continued.
“I think it is just awesome for myself that BK is staying here and it is great news for all of our fans.”
For Kelly himself, it was all about continuing his working relationship with Holbrook and he could not be happier.
“I think Justin and my relationship is building and he just wants the best for me,” Kelly said.
“I get along with him really well and having the new (high performance) staff there as well, I believe they are going to get the best out of me and I can’t wait (for 2021).”
