FURTHER stability has been added to the Titans squad, after record-breaking prop Luke Douglas resigned for another three years.
The front-rower, who played his 195th NRL game on Monday against the Sharks, joins a growing list of those re-committing to the Gold Coast club, including Kevin Gordon and Ryan James. While stars such as Greg Bird, Nate Myles and Dave Taylor are all set to remain on the Glitter Strip until 2015.
The Titans say Douglas is a “valuable member of (the) side”.

“He has shown his loyalty by remaining here when he could have earned more money elsewhere,” said coach John Cartwright.
“He gives enormous value to the team not just in the amount of games he plays but the commitment he gives on and off the field; he’s professional in every aspect in the way he approaches the game.”
The 27-year-old will undergo an ultra-sound on his injured thumb today in hope of continuing his record-breaking stint against Wests Tigers at home on Sunday.
Cartwright plans to take the same 17 men who beat Cronulla into the clash at CBus Super Stadium.
