Titans help launch Liam Hampson Cup

The Titans have joined forces with the Tweed Seagulls and Redcliffe Dolphins to officially launch the Liam Hampson Cup, which will feature as the curtain-raiser to the Gold Coast's newest NRL rivalry on Sunday, July 9 at Cbus Super Stadium.

Honouring the former Queensland Cup hooker who tragically passed away last October, the Hostplus Cup fixture will kick-start a Super Sunday of rugby league - the first of three matches including the first ever visit to Robina by the Dolphins.

Liam's mum Lorna Morton is proud to have both clubs pay tribute to the crafty No. 9 in this way, with the inaugural match to become a perpetual clash between Hampson's two former sides.

"It’s such a great honour for our family and to honour Liam’s legacy," she said.

"Liam played for both Tweed and Redcliffe and a lot of his mates still play in the Q Cup, so we want everyone to get down here at 1.15pm for the curtain-raiser to support Tweed and the Dolphins before the main game.

"There will be a Liam Hampson Cup awarded to the winning team and also a Liam Hampson Medal awarded to the best player and our family will be choosing that medallist."

Close friend and Titans star AJ Brimson is also humbled to play a big role on the day, watching his big brother Will and his best mates in action from the sidelines before running out for the Gold Coast in his NRL clash against the Dolphins.

"It’s very close to home... especially for Liam and his family," Brimson said.

"To have my brother there [playing for Tweed] and all the boys that he’s played with at both clubs, it’s definitely going to be special for the two teams.

"I know they’ll both genuinely want to get the win for Hampo on that day."

Hampo's Youth Foundation - a charity setup in Liam's honour to help young people reach their potential - will also be the 50-50 raffle beneficiary in the Round 19 fixture, with donations available to be made on the day across the venue.
