Half Tyrone Roberts has today agreed to terms with the club, for two seasons, through until the end of
Roberts spent 2016-17 at the Titans before inking a three-year deal at the end of last season to play for
the Warrington Wolves in the English Super League. The 27-year-old has a young family and after just one
season abroad, sought a release to return home.
The Wests Newcastle and Ballina junior made his NRL debut for the Newcastle in Round 6 of 2011 and
played a total of 97 matches for the Knights, before shifting to the Titans in 2016, playing 38 games over
his two seasons on the Coast (135 games in total).
Coach Garth Brennan is excited about the experience Roberts will add to the 2019 squad.
"Tyrone is a very good half but will also add that real utility value to our squad and the fact he can play
six, seven, nine or one makes him such a valuable commodity to have," Brennan said.
"He's played a number of representative matches and has been a seasoned NRL player for well over five
years, so he knows what it takes to compete at the top.
"Tyrone's been part of a successful club overseas who just qualified for the Challenge Cup final at
Wembley so the experience he has gained in his short time over in England will be extremely valuable to bring back to our young squad.
"He has many friends still at the club and I know he'll settle back in without any issues."
CEO Graham Annesley can see the real value in having a player like Tyrone at the club.
"Tyrone offers great value, bringing all the skills and ability of an experienced NRL player," Annesley said.
"He was also a very popular member of the squad during his previous two-year stint with the Titans, so
it's great to have him back on-board next season."
