The Titans have moved to boost its half-back stocks, signing Matt Robinson and Lachlan Burr from the Panthers and Bulldogs respectively.
The Gold Coast Titans have announced the signings of Penrith’s Matt Robinson and Canterbury’s Lachlan Burr in a move to shore up the clubs half-back stocks.
24-year-old Robinson was a regular for the Panthers in 2012-13 until a vertebra fracture in round 18 last season caused a lengthy lay-off.
He fought his way back into the Panthers line-up late in 2014 after further minor injury setbacks earlier in the season, but is still rated as a good prospect.
“I’ve got a lot of confidence from the last few weeks after having to overcome some injuries and I’m really excited about joining the Titans next year and hopefully playing my best football,” Robinson said on Thursday.
“Obviously the neck was a major shock at first but I’ve made a full recovery. I had to play a bit of catch up this season with a couple of other injuries too but I’m feeling good now and hope to finish the season well and then head to the Gold Coast.”
Burr has spent the last two seasons in the Bulldogs’ full-time NRL squad, but has played just the one senior game.
“I’m looking forward to getting back together with Aidan and Paul who I played a lot of footy with and making the most of the opportunity with a new club and new place after spending all my junior and senior career at the Bulldogs,” Burr said.
“Obviously with so much depth in the forwards here my opportunities have been limited and I’m keen to work hard and make the most of my chances on the Gold Coast.”
