Titans strengthen links with GCJRL
Monday 17 December 2012 12:00 AM
The iSelect Gold Coast Titans have held a landmark meeting with representatives from the Gold Coast Junior Rugby League and local clubs in a bid to strengthen the existing relationship between the parties.
As a result of the meeting, a sub-committee featuring representatives from the Titans and the GCJRL was formed as part of an ongoing process to assist with the development of junior rugby league players on the Gold Coast.
“One of the key aspects we want to focus on is helping the GCJRL with the quality of competitions and maintaining participation levels right through to Under-18s,’’ said iSelect Titans General Manager of Football Scott Clark.
“We want to assist with educating the coaches and assisting them with different ways of developing players in order to ensure they have the skills to better prepare young players as they progress through to our Junior Pathways Program.’’
Newly appointed Chairman of Gold Coast Junior Rugby League Kevin Byrne has stressed the importance of linking Gold Coast juniors with the Titans.
“We want local players coming through our development programs to play for the Titans like Ryan James and Luke O’Dwyer” Byrne said.
“There is no doubt that we have the talent coming through our junior ranks, but keeping them here on the Gold Coast is the key.’’
The Titans and Gold Coast Junior Rugby League have been closely linked since the inception of the Titans into the NRL competition in 2007.
