Gold Coast Coach Justin Holbrook says this is a great day for the club.
“I think it reaffirms the stability in our Club from one of the most exciting players in the NRL,” Holbrook said.
“He is a local product who loves the Club and wants to be successful here, so he sees a good vision moving forward.
“It’s so important for us to have AJ locked in long term because he is so important to what we are building here.
“I think it is great for everyone, I think he is one of the best young players in the NRL and he is only going to get better over the next few years.
“To have a player of his calibre excited to be here, it’s great from a coaching point of view and it is great for everyone involved in the club that he has locked in his future with us.”
AJ debuted for the Titans back in 2018, and has played 55 games over the past four seasons. He was also selected for Queensland’s State of Origin side last year, quickly establishing himself as one of the best fullbacks in the NRL.
Titans CEO Steve Mitchell says Brimson has always been part of the Titans long-term plans.
“AJ is the perfect example of the pathways we are building on the Gold Coast,” he said.
“From one of our local schools, he progressed through the Junior Titans System and into our NRL program.
“As we build the Titans on and off field over the next decade, we are excited that AJ will be a big part of that and we hope that he will be holding the NRL Premiership trophy aloft in the not too distant future.”
