Hayne re-signs with Titans

Former Fiji Bati and Fiji 7s rep Jarryd Hayne has re-signed with the Gold Coast Titans and will remain with the club till next year.

Hayne delayed the announcement to end of the week as he wanted to concentrate heavily on his State of Origin return for the New South Wales.

His management had earlier sounded out the possibility of a return to Parramatta but it's believed no rival clubs were likely to match his hefty salary at the Titans.

"I had a lot to consider with family and friends based in Sydney, but I'm really enjoying life on the Gold Coast which did help with my decision," Hayne said in a club statement.

"I'm very happy at the Titans and with the talent we have here I see a bright future for the club.”

"Although we've had a rough start to the season with injuries, I'm looking forward to helping our push for the finals this year, and continuing to improve as a club in 2018.”

The Titans were confident they would get value for money from Hayne, who is currently among the NRL's highest paid players under the $1.2 million yearly deal he secured last year when returning from stints in the NFL and rugby union sevens.

"Jarryd is one of the biggest names in Australian sport and we are delighted he has decided to stay with the Titans next year," Titans CEO Graham Annesley said.

"Although suffering a serious injury earlier in the season, he is now regaining top form as we saw that in his performance in State of Origin on Wednesday night. Jarryd has the ability to deliver a huge boost to the Titans fortunes both on and off the field,” he added.
