The Gold Coast Titans can today confirm that a Club Affiliate Agreement has been reached with both the Burleigh Bears and the Tweed Heads Seagulls.

Each agreement will stand for two years with a range of programs and initiatives being put in place over the period.

Both clubs will again benefit from the return of NRL squad members who are not selected in the top grade with each player to be allocated to a club depending on what position they require.

Player development will be a primary focus with the goal to keep local talent within the region in preparation for a potential NRL career.

All three clubs will work together to nurture that local talent.
