Peats signs Titans extension


Origin star Nathan Peats has signed a three-year extension with Gold Coast Titans, the NRL side announced on Friday.

Peats' new contract will see the 26-year-old remain on the Gold Coast until the end of the 2020 season.

New South Wales State of Origin hooker Peats arrived from Parramatta Eels midway through last season and has made 21 appearances for the Titans - 110 in total.

"It's great to have my future sorted here at the Titans," Peats said. "It's been a bit of a process but I'm happy to have it done and to know I'll be here for another three years is really pleasing.

"It's been a big year but with everything now sorted, I'm looking forward to focusing on the remainder of this season and my future here with the Titans.

"We've got a good bunch of guys here and a number of young players that have a bright future in the game. It'll be good to be part of this team and we'll be looking to do some good things over the next few years."

Titans head coach Neil Henry added: "Nathan has developed as a player and that has shown with his NSW selection this year. He is one of those players that his team-mates want to play with and he always plays with plenty of passion and commitment.

"He is a great trainer, prepares thoroughly and always competes on the field. His attitude and leadership will help the Titans grow as a club in the coming years."

The Titans are 14th in the 16-team NRL, with six wins from 16 games in 2017.
