The Gold Coast Titans have confirmed Penrith Panthers star Tyrone Peachey will join the side in 2019.

He now joins former teammates Bryce Cartwright, Leilani Latu and Mitch Rein in making the move north.
Having worked with Peachey previously, Head Coach Garth Brennan is excited about having the Wellington junior on the Gold Coast.
“Tyrone is a player that is versatile and also very skilful,” Brennan said. “He is a player that when he gets the ball in his hands, people in the crowd stand up and watch.
“He’s been on the edge of higher representative honours and I think he will add another dimension to this side in 2019.
“I’m looking forward to him joining the club next year.”
The club can confirm the signing of Tyrone Peachey, for season 2019 and beyond.

CEO Graham Annesley said he is looking forward to seeing what Peachey can do in 2019.
“Although Tyrone won’t be with us until next season, his signing demonstrates the club has a long-term plan for success,” Annesley said.
“This is another major coup for the club and is a further indication that quality experienced players recognise the tremendous potential of the Titans.”
