“I said when I returned how much I loved being in south-east Queensland and being around family and friends,” he said.
“To be able to be surrounded by them and play NRL for a club on the rise is great.
“I feel we’ve got a group of guys here who could do some great things in years to come.
“Both on and off the field the club is heading in the right direction and it’s something I am pleased that I’ll be a part of for the next two years.”
Coach Garth Brennan said he has always been a fan of Copley.
“I’ve mentioned before that I was a fan of Dale’s from just watching him,” he said. Now that I’m coaching him, my view hasn’t changed.
“He’s a strong and reliable centre who makes a great contribution on and off the field.
“It’s great that he’ll be here for the next two years as the club continues to build and move forward.”
Copley joined the Titans at the start of 2017 and has played 30 games for the club, scoring 10 tries.
The Aspley junior first debuted in 2009 for the Broncos (72 games), before joining the Roosters in 2016 (14 games) and has now played 116 NRL games.
