Jonus Pearson is a Star signing for Titans fans to get excited over.
The winger originally from Qld, went to St G Illawarra and has come back North where the GC Titans fans can watch the flying winger in action

Looks like a couple of good depth players have re-signed on with Workers.Prop Andy Saunders is back and prop Kurt DeLuis(the guy who impressed last year but had to step aside after an off field incident) seems to be training with the side,but not 100% sure of it(don't know if he has a case still to answer).
Tyran Ott our 2019 under 20's captain and dummy half is signed on as is Alfred Smalley the centre/winger,both played well with our CC side last year.Samuel Radovu a backrower from Cabramatta(Doggies feeder team) looks to be there as well,played in the NSW junior rep sides a couple of years back(u16/18).
Looks like lock/dummy half Denzal Tonise is back too.

Some more Workers signings....
Tyrell Fuimaono a backrower/centre from Panthers,has NRL experience with Rabbitohs and Panthers and could be a real quality pick up.(originally from eels)
Mitch Butfield a hardworking prop from the eels feeder side Wentworthville,good upside.
Ken Koro a winger with experience from the Bears/Asquith,feeder side to Roosters.
Ronnie Palumbo a centre/backrower originally from magpies and has been playing in the lower tier comps in the UK.
Sione Tuipulotu from the Asquith magpies,played back row on the edge or lock.Not sure if he is the guy from union who played for the rebels at super rugby level and did not quite make it and is having a crack at league....represented the rebels as a centre if he is the same guy,22 years old and 179cm and 101kgs.
Caleb Campbell a Blacktown workers junior,interesting guy,started as a prop but played centre/five eighth for the Asquith magpies in 2019,looks a solid defender and strong runner.
Gus Garzaniti a decent young halfback from the Wests Tigers 2019 flegg side.
Butfield and Fuimaono are probably the biggest of the signings and could be very handy players with some serious upside with good coaching....

News surrounding Latrell Mitchell's future in the NRL has taken another turn with Rabbitohs coach Wayne Bennett ruling out the Origin star from joining South Sydney.

The Rabbitohs re-signed State of Origin half Cody Walker until the end of 2022, while Gold Coast forward Jai Arrow has committed to the club as Sam Burgess' replacement.

Hey Joe - Tyrell Fuimaono has signed a 2 deal with Saints. Maybe he was shopping around and got a Top 30 spot elsewhere. A shame as I agree he looked to have some potential.

Despite getting the green light on a release from Melbourne for 2021, Josh Addo-Carr is reportedly keen to move back to Sydney before this coming season. a

And don’t rule out Redfern as a destination. Cue the ‘salary sombrero’ comments.

Addo-Carr has made no secret of his desire to return to Sydney, where he grew up and made his NRL debut in 2016, but the question is – where?

The Bulldogs, Dragons and Roosters have all been linked to Origin speedster in recent days, with a report from the Daily Telegraph stating ‘The Fox’ is only earning $330,000 a year at the Storm, chump change in comparison to rival rep wingers in the NRL.

Melbourne have stated they’ll only release Addo-Carr if they can secure a ‘like for like’ replacement.

Enter South Sydney.

Addo-Carr played for the Rabbitohs’ SG Ball team in 2012 while attending Matraville Sports High School, located in South Sydney territory. Add in the fact that the premiership-winner has family around the area.

Not to mention his incredibly close friendship with Cody Walker and Latrell Mitchell.

Meanwhile on the Gold Coast, the Titans refuse to release lock-forward Jai Arrow a year early unless they secure a quality forward in return.

Enter the three-team swap deal.

South Sydney could release Adam Doueihi and Alex Johnston from their existing contracts to join the Storm, Johnston’s lightning speed helping to plug Addo-Carr’s departure, while Doueihi can fill in at centre, or in the halves for Craig Bellamy’s side.

This would see the Storm release Addo-Carr to South Sydney, as well as Tino Fa’asuamaleaui to the Titans a year early.

With the Titans securing a quality forward, the club could then be content with releasing Arrow to Redfern in exchange for Dane Gagai and/or some surplus cash, benefitting all three clubs.

Adding the likes of Addo-Carr, Mitchell and Arrow in the pre-season could make South Sydney outright favourites for the premiership, potentially snaring three incumbent Origin stars in one silly season.

Bennett earlier this week advised Doueihi to leave the club in similar circumstances to Jai Arrow leaving Brisbane in 2017, admitting that the South Sydney utility is good enough to be playing NRL, there’s simply no spot for him there.

It has been reported before that he was leaving,but looks like Brayden Musgrove is linking up with the Cessnock Goannas in the Hunter region,so looks like he is gone.Erin Clark a utility 9/half originally from Warriors and Leleisuao a winger from Eels have scored NRL deals with the Titans.Looks like Fijian international prop Ben Nakubuwai is trialling with the Storm after stints with the Titans and Salford reds(originally with Storm I think...).
