Boost for Gold Coast Titans as another star re-signs

The Gold Coast Titans have put their faith in Titans winger Corey Thompson, locking him down for another year.

The 31-year-old is already contracted until the end of 2022, but he’s now added an extra year to his deal.

It will see the star winger, who has scored seven tries in eight games this season, remain on the coast until at least the end of the 2023 season.

Titans Coach Justin Holbrook said it was an “easy decision” to tack on another year to Thompson’s contact.

“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.”

Holbrook described the resigning of the in-form Queenslander as “great news” for the 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.”

It’s not the only milestone Thompson is celebrating this week.

He’s returning from an ankle injury to bolster the side for Saturday’s clash against the Raiders, where he will play his 100th NRL game.
