He was a late arrival in January, but Dalby-born Beau Fermor had an immediate impact on the Titans from the moment he made his debut.
After being released by the Newcastle Knights with one year to run on his contract so that he could be closer to family and home.
The move also allowed Fermor to secure a longer, 3-year deal with the Titans until the end of 2023.
Fermor was the NSWRL and Newcastle Jersey Flegg player of the year in 2018 and he was a key member the same season of the Queensland under-20 team that won its maiden interstate clash with NSW.
After earlier being in the Storm system for several seasons, he ruptured his ACL August 2019 after impressing in the Canterbury Cup competition and was expected to give the club added depth on the edges.
He did more than that and went on to play eight games of NRL after debuting in Round 8 against the Cronulla Sharks and making an immediate impact.
With the Titans reduced to 15 fit players following injuries to hooker Mitch Rein (knee) and utility Tanah Boyd (shoulder), Fermor was asked to play 75 minutes on debut.
His 121 metres from six runs included two line breaks where the 21-year-old showcased his speed and strength.
After the Round 8 game Justin Holbrook said Fermor was a "fantastic young back-rower coming through" and congratulated him on an excellent debut.
"He was fantastic for us, Beau. Ideally, 60 minutes would have been perfect for him after he has only played one scrimmage game in the past 12 months.
"Losing the other players made it really hard at the finish of the game for him but I thought his first 60 minutes was fantastic and he's going to be a great player in the future for us.
"He got his opportunity and showed that he is very capable."
It wasn't just his debut where he shined, as Fermor would go on to show his added versatility with stints in the centres, starting in the backrow and coming off the interchange bench.
With a full pre-season under his belt and the experience of 2020, the future looks bright for this Queenslander in 2021.
