“I’ve got unfinished business here”.
Kevin Proctor wants the Gold Coast to be successful and he wants to be part of the success when it comes.
Ahead of the Titans win over Manly on Saturday, Proctor put pen to paper to confirm he will be staying on the Gold Coast in 2020.
He says with yesterday’s result, the team is definitely heading in the right direction and he’s excited to be part of what’s to come in 2021.
“To be honest, If I had left the Club it would have left a sour taste in my mouth because I think I’ve got some unfinished business here,” he said.
“I think I owe it to the Club for the faith they’ve shown in me over the last couple of years and sticking by me.
“I think we’ve got some successful years here to come and I want to be here for those successful years.”
The 31-year-old says he’s excited by the arrival of David Fifita, Tino Fa’asuamaleaui and Herman Ese’ese next season and after 251 NRL games, he believes he can help their development.
“We’ve got a couple of great signings and some young kids that are coming to the Club and hopefully I can help them out a little bit and I can obviously learn a lot off them too,” he said.
Proctor says the coaching staff have given him a renewed passion for the game, which has seen his form improve through 2020.
“I really enjoy working with Justin, him and the two Jimmy’s (Dymock and Lenihan), they’ve given me this new fresh sense of playing my footy again.
“They just make me want to play for them and I think they’ve got that aura about them and all the boys want to play for them.
“Their game-plan just suits how we play and they’ve got a good relationship with all of the players.”
After a run of strong form to finish the season, Proctor says the team is now starting to show what it is capable of albeit too late for a run at finals this year.
“I think we are just starting to play our best footy at the end of the year and that’s a shame that it took us ten rounds to gel as a team.
“To see the team come together so well in these last seven or eight rounds, it is exciting for the future and I want to be there for the next couple of years when we are successful.”
