Titans announce Meninga signing


//

Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga has signed on with the Gold Coast Titans as the club’s new head of performance and culture.

Meninga will remain as coach of Australia but will move from Canberra to undertake his duties with the struggling NRL club immediately.

The Queensland legend met with club officials and owners and declared it was difficult to turn them down considering the amount of potential the Titans possess.

“It’s a rugby league heartland,” Meninga said of the Gold Coast.

“Their desire to have a successful and prominent club in the NRL ... I got that right from the beginning.

“It was pretty hard not to engage in further discussions.

“I believe the Titans is the right club for me.”

Meninga’s national coaching duties continue to be his main priority and he confirmed that he has no intention of taking over from Garth Brennan.

“I have said on several occasions I have no desire to return to NRL club coaching and that remains the case,” Meninga said.

“But working with the Titans - the youngest club in the NRL - in this role allows me to contribute to the game at club level with new and different challenges.

“Coaching Australia is a great source of pride for me and it will continue to be my priority.

"The Titans are happy for me to continue in that role and I have no doubt I can combine the two roles successfully.”

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg declared it a positive appointment.

“Mal is required throughout the year to promote the game, providing mentoring and assistance to young players and to assist with the elite level of the game,” Greenberg said.

“But since there are no Kangaroos matches until the end of the 2019 season he will have capacity to devote to the Titans’ role."
