The signing blitz at the Gold Coast Titans is showing no signs of slowing down, with Premiership winning Roosters prop Isaac Liu the latest recruitment win for the club.
The 30-year-old, who grew up on the Gold Coast, has signed a three-year deal with the Titans from 2022.
The former Keebra Park State High School student is returning home after a successful playing stint with the Sydney Roosters, where he made his debut in 2013.

Titans Coach Justin Holbrook has described the signing as a huge win for the club.
“His experience and the fact that he is a big game player that has won competitions makes him a player that is very valuable for us,” Holbrook said.
“He is such a professional guy, he’s capable at playing at both prop or lock and he brings so much off the field as well.
“We’ve got some of the most exciting young forwards in the game in Moeaki Fotuaika, David Fifita and Tino Fa’asuamaleaui but they are all still 21-years old.
“To have someone like Isaac be able to mentor our young forwards and also drive the culture we are building at the Titans makes him a really important signing.”
According to the stats, the grand final winning forward is averaging 53 minutes per game and 97 running metres per game.
It comes after the Titans yesterday confirmed Beau Fermor had signed a contract extension that will keep him on the Gold Coast until the end of 2024.
Toby Sexton, Corey Thompson and Patrick Herbert are also among a number of other Titans to have locked in further extensions at the club over the past few weeks.
