Jack Stockwell extends stay at Titans
TFH Gold Coast Titans forward Jack Stockwell has today extended his contract with the Titans for a further year, through until the end of 2019.
The Picton junior joined the Titans for season 2018 and after suffering an early setback that resulted in shoulder surgery, the 26-year-old has made seven top grade appearances since making his club debut back in Round 6 against the Penrith Panthers.
Stockwell made his NRL debut for the St George Illawarra Dragons in Round 11 of season 2012 and has since made 70 NRL appearances.
Coach Garth Brennan is happy to have someone of Stockwell's experience as part of his squad.
"As we all know, Jack had an early shoulder issue that needed to be sorted out when he first arrived at the club, but since that surgery he has shown how professional and diligent he is with his recovery and preparation," Brennan said.
"He's a quiet character but he is someone that speaks with his actions. He has made a real impact coming off the bench this year playing in the middle and he provides us with what we need.
"Jack has played 70 NRL matches and is up to the task of NRL football. I know he's enjoying life up here on the Gold Coast and I'm looking forward to continuing to work with him next season."
CEO Graham Annesley is pleased Stockwell will be a Titan in 2019.
"Jack is a quality person and hard worker who has made a valuable contribution to the culture of the club. It's great to have him with us for another year as we continue to improve the strength and depth of our squad," Annesley said.
