The Gold Coast Titans have confirmed Tyrone Roberts will return to the club in 2019.
Roberts has signed a two-year deal with the club until the end of 2020.
The 27-year-old played for the Titans in 2016 and 2017 before signing a three-year deal with UK Superleague side the Warrington Wolves.

But after just one year and with a young family, Roberts is heading home.
The Titans had been in talks with Roberts for the last couple of months about a return to the Gold Coast after he sought a release from Warrington.
Roberts has a long association with Titans coach Garth Brennan from their time at the Newcastle Knights.
Brennan says he’s excited about what Roberts will bring to the squad next year.
“Tyrone is a very good half but will also add that real utility value to our squad and the fact he can play six, seven, nine or one makes him such a valuable commodity to have,” Brennan said.
“Tyrone’s been part of a successful club overseas who just qualified for the Challenge Cup final at Wembley so the experience he has gained in his short time over in England will be extremely valuable to bring back to our young squad.”
Brennan is confident Roberts will settle back into the club without any issues.
Titans CEO Graham Annesley says Roberts will bring great value to the club.
“He was also a very popular member of the squad during his previous two-year stint with the Titans, so it’s great to have him back on-board next season.”
