He had every chance to move elsewhere and potentially snag a starting berth but Jayden Campbell was committed to making it work with the Gold Coast Titans, signing a new deal.
Campbell’s new deal will run until the end of 2026 season, and is effectively a two-year extension with the livewire utility already contracted for 2024.
The son of foundation Titan Preston Campbell, Jayden has successfully carved his own path in the league and recently hit 30 NRL games at Magic Round last weekend.
With a desire to win a premiership and his family’s rich history with the club since its inception, Campbell is determined to play well and wants to be a one-club player.
“I’ve always wanted to be a Titan and I’ve always wanted to be a one-club person as well,” Campbell said.
“The Titans have done a lot for me and my family, and I’d like to do the same for them.
“Hopefully that’s with bringing success here and winning premierships.”
Titans coach Justin Holbrook spoke glowingly of the talented utility, saying that he is loved among the club.
“Everyone loves JC and I’m so excited that he’ll remain a Titan until the end of 2026,” Holbrook said.
“He’s such a natural footy player and is a big part of our team. He’s worked extremely hard on his game and continues to impress every time he pulls on a Titans jersey.”
Holbrook also praised Campbell for his work ethic in both attack and defence and knows that all the feelings are mutual when it comes to loving the club.
“Not only is he electrifying in attack, but he has also shown to be fearless in defence and has proven to be such a valuable player for our roster with his ability to play in several positions,” Holbrook continued.
“He loves this club as much as we love him, and he joins our strong group of core players who are locked in long-term to continue building sustained success here on the Coast.”
