Gold Coast local Jarrod Wallace has agreed to extend his contract at the Titans until the end of the 2022 season.
Newscorp reports the deal is worth $2.5 million dollars over four years.
The club played hardball with Wallace, demanding he makes a decision to invoke the extension today.

Wallace, who played junior footy for Runaway Bay, said he’s looking forward to his future with the Titans.
“Ever since I came to the Coast I’ve said how proud I am to represent where I come from and nothing has changed in that regard,” he said.
“It’s a great bunch of boys we’ve got here and whilst we’re not in the greatest position at present, I really feel as though we’re building towards something special in the future.”
The hulking prop has played 102 NRL games and represented the Queensland in last year’s State of Origin.
He joins Ash Taylor one of the best young prospects at the club, and will likely be a pillar Coach Garth Brennan builds his team around.
“My priority was to always keep Jarrod on the Coast,” Brennan said.
“He’s a local product and a quality front rower. It’s great that he’ll be here long-term.”
The Titans host the Roosters for Round 10 of the NRL at Cbus Stadium on Saturday.
