Titans made to work regular jobs in pre-season


//

Gold Coast players will ditch the football and pick up the tools this week as the Titans take a different approach to their NRL pre-season program.

Every player in the Titans squad will be assigned a job to undertake in the next four days in what coach Garth Brennan hopes will be a learning experience for his players.

"Next week when they're back at training if I ask them to give that little bit extra on the training paddock they don't go whinging about it because they realise they've got it pretty good," Brennan told Nine News.

In all 31 players will work eight hour shifts across a variety of businesses before then attending training sessions on three nights of the week.

Players will be placed at workplaces such as car washes, and in tradie jobs such as those in electrical and plumbing.

"A lot of our players come through the grades and straight into full-time training," Brennan said.

"I want them to experience what it's like for our corporates, members and fans.

"What it's like to have a full day of work and then go to training, or the gym."

Jarrod Wallace will be in landscaping, Nathan Peats bricklaying and Jai Arrow will be working with a plumber. Skipper Ryan James meanwhile got some early work in at Hoppy's car wash.

"To tell you the truth I've never worked a day in my life, and doing something like this makes you appreciate what you do have," James told Nine News.
