Titans express disappointment over the unexpected change as junior nursery signs an exclusive contract.


A Sydney club wins when the Titans lose.


The removal of Keebra Park High School from their pathways program has shocked and disappointed the Gold Coast Titans.

Over the years, Keebra Park has produced a staggering amount of NRL talent.
Players like Chantay Kiria-Ratu, a star in NRLW, and former student Tanah Boyd, AJ Brimson, Moeaki Fotuaika, and Alofiana Khan-Pereira have all made long-term commitments to the club.

Nonetheless, it’s thought that Keebra Park desired an exclusive contract with the Titans, who also collaborate with several other local schools.

Keebra Park will now be connected to the South Sydney Rabbitohs instead of existing as a fish in the sea.

The Titans pledged not to jeopardize the club’s goal of serving as a regional leader.


Club chairman Dennis Watt released a statement saying, “We are disappointed we were unable to satisfy Keebra Park’s demands around exclusivity as we need to act in the best interests of our entire catchment area.”.

As a club, we hold the belief that we should never stop providing a route for young boys and girls who want to represent their communities and families at the highest level.
We also work to keep families together whenever we can.

We are happy to have a number of Keebra Park alums who have made the Gold Coast their home, such as David Fifita, Tanah Boyd, AJ Brimson, Moeaki Fotuaika, Alofiana Khan-Pereira, and Chantay Kiria-Ratu.
Several of these former students have been selected to compete in the upcoming Pacific Championships on behalf of their family heritage.

The report indicates that the next three years will see the Rabbitohs and Keebra Park in a partnership.

Due to their connections in Queensland, South Sydney was able to sign junior Maroons Origin half Jaye Gray last year.

The school will have exclusive access to South Sydney’s elite pathways and coaching under the terms of their three-year partnership agreement with Keebra Park.

Rabbitohs Chief Operating Officer Brock Schaefer said in a statement, “This is a great opportunity for the Club to expand its pathways into Queensland with the best Rugby League school academy in Queensland.”.

Keebra Park State High School boys and girls will have access to top-notch coaching through the Rabbitohs, and as a result, we will be able to contribute to the development of the best young, elite coaching and playing talent in the sport.

Our success at the NRL and senior levels within our Club depends on sustained and increased investment in our elite pathway programs, as we noted in our strategic plan and the most recent review of our football department.
The work we’re already doing in this area will be improved by this exclusive affiliation agreement, which will also soon yield advantages for the highest levels of society.

“We are very excited about this partnership with Keebra Park State High School.
Tyrone McCarthy, who has a wealth of experience in both the Queensland Rugby League and building academies, will be leading this from our end.
We can’t wait to get started as we move into season 2024 and beyond.”.
