New recruit Brenko Lee has today reported to the TFH High Performance Centre for his first day at the club and believes the opportunity to play professionally and be close to family will help his game go the next level.

The 22-year-old moved away from home when he was just 16 but always loved being at home surrounded by family and friends.

"It’s good to be back with my family, I moved away when I was 16,” Lee said. “It’s great to be home.

“It’s been hard, I had to adapt and mature quickly. I made a point to myself that I needed to provide for my family and now that I’m home I can do both by playing professionally but still being around them.”

Lee had a solid year at the Bulldogs last year but deep inside him he knew that he wanted to be back in south-east Queensland and when the opportunity came up, it didn’t take long to make up his mind.

“I guess I know it’s the right move to come back home. Everything was ok at the Bulldogs but my heart wasn’t really there. I’ve always wanted to be around family and I know this is the right decision.

“The Christmas break was great, probably the best thing was that I knew I was staying and didn’t have to pack my bag again to head back to Sydney.”

Before signing, the Logan Brothers junior ran into halfback Ash Taylor and asked about the club and the direction it is headed.

“I actually ran into him in Sydney and I just asked about the club and where the Titans were going. I’ve played in a couple of junior rep teams with him and trust his opinion.

“I’m a kid from Logan and to be home is something that I didn’t think would eventuate, it’s a bit of a dream for it to happen so soon.”
