Former Penrith Panthers player, Bryce Cartwright, is preparing to reach his full potential under Gold Coast coach Garth Brennan.
The hulking forward joined the Titans after a nightmare 2017 season plagued by injury and off-field drama.
The 23-year-old has denied a rift between him and Panthers coach Anthony Griffin after leaving Penrith only two years into a five-season deal.

This morning, he had his first training session on the Coast and said Brennan was a major reason for the move.
“Garth was probably the biggest factor coming up here,” Cartwright said.
“I’ve known Garth since I was 16 or 17. He debuted me in the (under) 20s and we had a close relationship at Penrith. I’m really excited to play footy with him again.
“That and getting out of Sydney with me and my family; (the Gold Coast) is a great place to raise a young family.”
The NRL All Star is hoping to secure a spot in the Titans’ pack, most likely at lock.
