Titans front-rower Jaimin Jolliffe has confirmed he will be staying on the Gold Coast for another two years, with the prop locked in until the end of 2022.
The 23-year-old has been a revelation for the Titans this season, having arrived at the Club in the pre-season on a train and trial contract with no guarantee that he would be included in the main squad.
Jolliffe not only forced his way into the squad but had made his NRL debut by Round One and has since established himself in the starting side.
The Wagga-Wagga product came to the Gold Coast via a stint at the Newtown Jets and says he is thrilled to be extending his stay in Queensland.
“I’m super excited,” Jolliffe said.
“Just to be a part of it, I want to be here and I want to have success with the Club and I really think we are building to something special.
“I’m really excited for the next few years but before that we need to finish off this year on a high.
“Each week I’m not focussing on next year or the week after, I’m just focussing on each week, I’m doing my study and I’m doing my review and I’m just trying to do the little things and each week get better bit by bit.”
Jolliffe says he is learning off the experienced members of the Titans pack.
“I’m having conversations with (Jarrod) Wallace and Sam Lisone and we are always sort of bouncing off each other and I’m always after feedback,” he said.
“Whenever I get the chance I always talk to Ryan James as well who is a veteran of the club and a great footballer and I’m getting in his ear and having a yarn to see what I can do better.”
Jolliffe’s next test comes against a big Dragons pack in Round 16, but he is also eyeing strong performances for the Titans final two home games against Brisbane and Newcastle at Cbus Super Stadium.
