As one of the newer teams in the NRL after only been formed in 2007, the Gold Coast Titans did managed some success in 2009 and 2010 finishing 3rd and 4th in the table respectably but in the main it has all been about establishing themselves as a NRL team and building up a fan base and all off the field aspects needed to be a successful club in the world’s leading rugby league.
The clubs move from oval Carrara Stadium to the impressive rectangular Robina Stadium given the club a purpose built rugby stadium to call home.
On the field the Titans have managed to persuade many stars of the game to join their ranks with former Catalans Dragons star and Australia international Greg Bird been one of the more recognisable faces for fans of the European Super League.
As with many NRL teams at the moment, the Gold Coast titans also have featured an British star in their ranks with former Wigan and Hull FC youngster Matthew Russell making the move at the end of the 2012 season.
Gold Coast Titans NRL
The Titans are based in a hot bed of Rugby League but despite the odd green shoot, they have struggled to grab the attention of the Gold Coast public but things are starting to look to be on the up thanks in part to the signing of Justin Holbrook, with the former St Helens head coach bringing a new level of professionalism and a winning mentality to the Titans.
The Gold Coast Titans are as you would expect located on Australia Gold Coast where they play in the suburb of Robina in Queensland.
The Gold Coast is located just down the coast from the city of Brisbane.
The club play at the bright and modern all seater Cbus Super Stadium as it is known for sponsorship reason or simply as Robina Stadium, which is capable of hosting a little over 27,000 fans when full.
As a relatively new club, they do not really have a heated rivalry with anybody but there is always a specialist internet in their matches against fellow Queensland team with their matches against the nearby Brisbane Broncos all big occasions.
Colours / Playing Kit
The Titans are known for their colour playing kits that are represented of their location on the Gold coast, one of Queensland most popular seaside holiday resorts.
Their home shirts are mostly blue and featuring a mix of white, gold and navy.
In some ways the Titans took over from where the Gold Coast-Tweed Giants / Gold Coast Seagulls / Gold Coast Chargers left off as the former club existed between 1988 – 1998 but as you can tell from the number of name changes, the former Gold Coast based professional rugby league side struggled for stability.
Upon joining the NRL in 2007 as a totally new club after a number of trial matches proved successful in terms of local interest and in important people involved in the sport wanting a team base din the rapidly growing region.
For their inaugural season, the club played at the Carrara Stadium and attracted good attendance although their first ever game was moved to Suncorp Stadium is Brisbane as 42,000 saw them lose to their rivals.
In 2009, they moved into their great home venue in Robina before a successful 2009 season that was them reach the end of season finals for the first time before achieving the same feat in 2010.
Unfortunately, a large number of players left the club and in 2011, they achieved a new first but this time it was their first wooden spoon after finish last in the table.
Although they didn’t finish last again until 2019, things did get worse for the fledgling club as they suffered a number of on the field and off of the field issues include salary cap breaches that led to the NRL having to take over the club.
This period saw lots of change with high earning and under-performing players leaving and younger and hungrier players coming in and that helped them to turn around their on the field performances and they once again reached the end of season finals.
In 2019, the club announced the signing of St Helens head coach Justin Holbrook who brought a new winning attitude and a new level of professionalism to the club and that has seen them become a stronger force on the field.
That has also seen them attract new eyes from over here as British fans who like the way Holbrook had the Saints playing have taken notice of the improving Titans.
Down the years the club have had a number of stars represent them including the likes of Australian internationals Luke Bailey, Greg Bird, Nate Myles, Scott Prince and Anthony Laffranchi.
Cook Island star Dominique Peyroux and Brad Takairangi, Fiji star Jarryd Hayne, Italian international Mark Minichiello, Papua New Guinea stars David Mead and Nene McDonald, Samoa star Sam Tagataese, Tonga representative Konrad Hurrell and New Zealand Kiwis Jake Webster and Kevin Proctor.
The club have utilised a number of feeder clubs during their history to take advantage of the huge number of rugby league players in the south Brisbane / Queensland region including the likes of the Tweed Heads Seagulls, the Burleigh Bears and the Ipswich Jets.
