It’s a milestone week for Corey Thompson, with the Titans winger notching his 100th NRL game and also re-signing with the Gold Coast club.
Already contracted until the end of 2022, Thompson has added another year to his deal that will keep him on the Coast until the end of the 2023 season.
Titans Coach Justin Holbrook says it was an easy decision to add another year to the in-form Queenslander’s contract.
“I think the way Corey started the year, it was no coincidence that we were playing a lot better when he was in our side,” Holbrook said.
“The energy that he plays with is infectious for our team and we’ve really missed him while he has been our injured.
“This is great news for us to keep him at our club.
“I think he is in the best form of his career and that’s because of the great environment we’ve got him in here and I’m looking forward to him continuing to play for us.”
Thompson returns from an ankle injury to bolster the Titans line-up for Saturday’s round 16 clash against the Canberra Raiders where he will play his 100th NRL game.
The 31-year-old debuted for the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2014, playing in the NRL grand final in his debut season.
Thompson played 35 games for the Dogs before moving to England, returning to play 44 games for Wests Tigers before joining the Titans in 2020.
In eight games this season, Thompson has scored seven tries and is averaging 180 running metres per game.
