The Gold Coast Titans can today confirm that Penrith Panthers hooker Kierran Moseley has agreed to a two-year deal with the club and will join the squad for training tomorrow.
Moseley, 20, hails from Cloncurry, west of Mt Isa, and was a Junior Kangaroo in 2013. He is the first Cloncurry junior to make it to the NRL.
Despite being eligible for under-20s he played for the Panthers’ reserve grade side that won the NSW Cup in 2014. In 2013 he played a prominent role in Penrith’s Holden Cup grand final winning side, which means he has won successive premierships since joining Penrith. A teammate in that victorious under-20s side was current Titans centre James Roberts.
Mosely played off the bench behind club captain Kevin Kingston in the latter half of the season, adding a lot of impact off the bench. In front of them was James Segeyaro which meant his NRL chances were restricted although he made his debut against Manly in round 25.
“I’m thankful for Penrith letting me head back to Queensland to look for an opportunity to play in the NRL and I want to make the most of it,” Mosely said after arriving on the Gold Coast today.
“It will be great to link up against with [assistant coach] Rohan Smith who was Garth Brennan’s assistant when we won the 20s competition in 2012 and also James Roberts. To have Ryan Simpkins and Matt Robinson, who I played with this year at the Panthers, here too will hopefully help me settle in.”
