The Gold Coast Titans spine was missing a talented hooker but they have now signed one with the recruitment of Sam Verrills.
Verrills, who will be behind the pecking order at the Roosters after their signing of Brandon Smith, will be a handy addition at the Titans.
Still only 23, Verrills was a premiership winner with the Roosters in 2019, and that calibre excites Titans coach Justin Holbrook.
“Sam has great vision and is a real threat from that hooker position,” Holbrook said.
“He’s learnt his craft under Origin hooker Jake Friend and has been able to really shine in that number nine jersey for the Roosters in recent seasons.”
