Titans visit local schools

AS HE took students from Bishop Druitt College through some skill drills yesterday, Gold Coast Titans forward Luke Bailey admitted that he’s a bit jealous of how much more attention school kids receive from NRL clubs today compared to when he was a young junior in Shell Harbour.

“We get out to the schools a couple of times a week and we were lucky to have one player come out ever,” Bailey recalled.

“David Boyle was the player that came out and saw us when we younger. That was a long time ago.”

Bailey visited Bishop Druitt College yesterday along with Brad Meyers, Aaron Cannings and Joseph Tomane and local ARL development officer Jay Sakaio and the group took the keen participants through some of the basics before signing plenty of autographs.

“It’s always good to come out and offer the kids some advice and just muck around with them,” the veteran forward said.

This morning the Titans are holding a training session at the Novotel Pacific Bay Resort ground starting at 8.30am.
