Michael Gordon takes home ‘The Preston’ as Titans farewell gift

Retiring fullback Michael Gordon may not have got the win he was chasing in his final game in the NRL, but the classy veteran signed off his career as a Gold Coast Titan by winning one of the Club’s major awards, The Preston.

This award is named after rugby league icon, former Dally M Medal winner, Premiership winner, and Titans Hall of Fame recipient Preston Campbell.

“The Preston” is presented to the Titans player who shows several standout qualities such as consistent work ethic and a positive attitude towards every game along with a strong commitment to effort and determination.

He is well respected, by his peers and opposition alike, not only because of what he says, but what he does. He is a leader in every way.

Gordon, not surprisingly, was a popular choice.

A wonderful player, Gordon’s abilities on the football field were only surpassed by his extreme professionalism and dedication to his community, which saw him named as the Titans’ nominee for the NRL’s Ken Stephen Medal.

Congratulations to “Flash” Gordon, and all the very best in retirement!
