Holbrook set to unveiled as new Gold Coast Titans boss

29th July 2019, 11:36 by Tom Hill

St Helens boss Justin Holbrook has agreed to take the Gold Coast Titans job from 2020, reports in Australia claim.

The Saints boss has worked wonders once again this season and he has led his side to the top of the Super League table.

St Helens are 10 points clear of Warrington Wolves at present but the club now look set to lose the 43-year-old.

Reports Down Under claim Holbrook has agreed to move back to Australia after talks last weekend and his return will be unveiled on Tuesday.

The Titans also spoke to Kevin Walters but Holbrook's work as an assistant at a number of NRL clubs seems to have paid off.

Holbrook is expected to see out the season with St Helens before returning to Australia in time for pre-season in November.

Gold Coast have refused to name any candidate in their latest statement and claimed the club's fans will be updated in due course.

Titans chairman Dennis Watt said: "This is an important decision in the history of the Titans, and right from the start we have said that the club will take its time and go through the proper process before the club decides upon a candidate, and that decision is shared with our members, fans, sponsors and the media.

"This process will not be rushed. The club has been very thorough in its assessment and due diligence performed on each candidate to ensure the person who best fits the club's strategic plan is chosen as Titans head coach.

"We will inform all stakeholders when a decision and agreement has been reached."
