0

Sydney Roosters hooker Sam Verrills has elected to move on from the Tri-colours to sign a two-year deal with the Gold Coast Titans.

The Roosters 2019 grand final hero will officially join the club from November 1 and is locked in for both the 2023 and 2024 seasons.

Verrills has made 43 appearances for the Roosters since making his NRL debut three years ago.

The Titans have been active in the player market after a tough 2022 season, also acquiring Manly veteran Kieran Foran. Gold Coast coach Justin Holbrook said the club’s prime motive heading into next year is to revitalise their spine.

“Sam has great vision and is a real threat from that hooker position,” Holbrook said.

“He’s learnt his craft under Origin hooker Jake Friend and has been able to really shine in that number nine jersey for the Roosters in recent seasons.

“We’ve got great experience joining our spine next year with the arrival of Kieran Foran and our key positions will be further bolstered with Sam’s arrival.

“When you add those two players to our mix of exciting young players who have come through our pathway programs here on the Coast like AJ Brimson, Jayden Campbell and Toby Sexton, we’re really confident with the squad we are building for next year and beyond.”

Verrills departure has seemed inevitable since the Roosters signed Storm star Brandon Smith earlier this year.
