Titans confirm signing of new playmaker for 2016

ALEX HEINKE reports.

Newcastle have granted halfback Tyrone Roberts an early release to join Gold Coast from next year.

This confirms the talks of a move to the coast sooner rather than later with the promising Roberts signing with the Titans for two seasons.


This ends their search for an experienced halfback following Daly Cherry-Evans’ controversial backflip earlier in the year and current pivot, Aiden Sezer moving to the Canberra Raiders.

The 24-year-old, who is the cousin of current Titan James Roberts, was seeking a release from the Knights after they captured NSW halfback Trent Hodkinson from next season.
