AJ Brimson declined to meet rival suitors so he could sign a contract extension with Gold Coast Titans until the end of 2022.
The 21-year-old full-back has scored 11 tries in 36 games for the Titans since making his NRL debut in 2018. He played five games for Australia at the World Cup Nines this autumn.
Gold Coast coach Justin Holbrook said: “AJ is a perfect example of the Titans production line in action – a local junior who came through the club’s development system to play NRL in his hometown.
“AJ’s story is not unique to the club because we are lucky to have a lot of local juniors here who have followed that path.
“But certainly AJ is another example of the template that we will use to take the Titans forward on the back of the best talent produced in the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers region.
“AJ is an exceptional young player as we all know, highlighted by the fact he is now on the radar of representative selectors. But importantly he is also an impressive young man, a quality human being who has a passion for this club and his community.”
