Gold Coast Titans players enjoyed their first weekend of 'freedom' from the NRL Apollo protocols, with many taking the chance to head to the beach or even just enjoy a coffee for the first time in months.
Under the Queensland Government regulations, Titans players had to isolate for two weeks after their final match against Newcastle as they had played a Sydney-based team, while the Cowboys and Broncos players were able to be out a week earlier after playing each other in the final round.

Jarrod Wallace and his wife, Courtney enjoyed some beach time with their daughters.
