Kane Elgey has found his groove back on the Gold Coast working with the Titans JTS (Junior Titans System) to develop the next generation of first graders.
Elgey replaced another former Titan in Matt Srama in September of 2020 and hasn't looked back since the day he received the phone call from Jamie McCormack (Titans Elite Player Development Manager).
"I love working with the kids and the main thing I want to do is give them a pathway to rugby league and life." Elgey said
Three months in now and Elgey is relishing being back at the club where it all started for him.
"I am from Palm Beach and I enjoyed my time at Manly but I am enjoying being home and ready for the next stage of my career." Elgey said.
The JTS program held a four week block of training with the kids in the program pre-Christmas which covered the Gold Coast, Tweed Heads, Ballina and Logan.
It wasn't just Elgey in attendance though with a number of current first grade players coming along - Phil Sami joined the Logan session, Jai Whitbread was in Tweed Heads, while Brian Kelly visited his hometown of Ballina to show the local kids some support.
"It was great to have the first graders come along and it is a reward for the kids and all their hard work.
"I remember when I was a kid (and in a similar program) having first graders come to the sessions just lights you up." Elgey said
2020 was a big year for Elgey but not just at the Titans, as he married long-time partner Georgie in December as well.
One thing is for sure, Kane Elgey certainly seems to be back at home on the Gold Coast and the Titans are happy to have him back.
