On this day.... Tino becomes a Titan

He has recently signed a long-term extension, but on this day two years ago not so many knew about 'Big Tino.'

With only five NRL games under his belt at the time, Gympie-raised Queenslander was a relatively unknown to many on the Gold Coast.

Courted by NRL Immortal Mal Meninga, Tino saw a future he liked the look of on the Gold Coast Titans and signed on the dotted line to join the club 12 months later.

The following year Fa'asuamaleaui went on to win a NRL Premiership with the Melbourne Storm before joining the Titans ahead of the 2021 season.

In his first season on the Gold Coast Fa'asuamaleui picked up the Paul Broughton Medal as the club's best and fairest after a season of consistent effort and immediate impact.

Tino Fa'asuamaleaui - The story so far...

  • 49 NRL games
  • 11 tries
  • 5,977 run metres
  • 1,236 tackles made
  • 67% win record

After the announcement of Fa'asuamaleaui's recent contract extension, Head Coach Justin Holbrook said Tino sets the standards for the young Titans side.

“Tino is not just a great player, he is a great person,” Holbrook said.

“He’s only entering his second pre-season here at the Titans, but he has already made a huge impact on the players, staff and everyone involved in our club.

“Tino is our hardest working player who sets very high standards for himself and is always doing extras after training to improve his game."

As the young Titans side has the experience of a finals campaign under their belt, expectations will grow in 2022 and Tino will be at the front leading the Club's charge towards finals next season.
