The Gold Coast Titans have added two-time Premiership winner Isaac Liu to their ranks for the 2022 NRL season.
Liu will bring a veteran presence to a youthful forward pack, which proved to be a key reason as to why Titans coach Justin Holbrook was delighted to secure him.
“His experience and the fact that he is a big game player that has won competitions makes him a player that is very valuable for us,” Holbrook said.
“He is such a professional guy, he’s capable of playing at both prop or lock and he brings so much off the field as well.
“We’ve got some of the most exciting young forwards in the game in Moeaki Fotuaika, David Fifita and Tino Fa’asuamaleaui but they are still 21-years old.

‘To have someone like Isaac be able to mentor our young forwards and also drive the culture we are building at the Titans makes him a really important signing.”
30-year old Liu made his debut for the Sydney Roosters in 2013 and has played over 190 games for the club, winning the 2018 and 2019 premierships.
The move to the Glitter Strip represents somewhat of a homecoming for the forward, as he attended Keebra Park State High School on the Gold Coast.
Liu is the second new face set to join Justin Holbrook’s side from next season, with the New Zealand Warriors’ Paul Turner also pledging his future to the Titans.
The signing of Liu follows the news of the Gold Coast side tying down forwards Beau Fermor, Jaimin Jollife and veteran winger Corey Thompson on future deals.
