Titans winger Phillip Sami has locked in to another two years with the Gold Coast side.
The fastest Titans player ever will now stay on the coast until the end of the 2022, despite getting chased by a number of rival clubs.
The Ipswich junior says it was an easy decision for him, and he’s looking forward to being a part of the Titans’ resurgence under new coach Justin Holbrook.

“Obviously I had decisions to make in the off-season and the start of the pre-season.
“I went back to the family, and they are very happy that I am staying home. I am very grateful for the opportunity that Justin has given me. Hopefully I can make the most of it here.
“On the off-season I had other clubs chasing me, and pretty much in the last two weeks my manager went back to the Titans – as in Ezra (Recruitment Manager Ezra Howe) and Justin – and told them the situation I was in.
“I was thankful that the Titans came back with an offer. For me, choosing to stay home is a big part of what I want to do here. I know this club has a big future, so I wanted to be a part of it,” Sami said.
He’s now working on making sure other Gold Coast juniors, like the off-contract AJ Brimson, follow his lead and stay with the Titans.
“I had a word with him about it, so hopefully he stays too,” Sami said.
