Kevin Proctor’s NRL future has finally been resolved with the Gold Coast captain signing a one-year contract extension with the NRL club.
Proctor put a horror month behind him on Wednesday, agreeing to stay with the Titans until the end of 2021 as he prepares to return from a four-game ban for biting.
It comes after the Kiwi Test star had feared he would have to look elsewhere to continue his rugby league career, after entering the last months of this season unsigned.
But that has now ended, with the 31-year-old Proctor having agreed to a new deal while suspended.
Proctor’s case for a new contract had been backed by teammates and former Titans players, who long held the belief he should be part of the club’s next chapter.
He will be the senior leader of a revamped pack that includes recruits David Fifita, Tino Fa’asuamaleaui, Herman Ese’ese and alongside current gun Moeaki Fotuaika.
Titans coach Justin Holbrook welcomed Proctor’s decision to re-sign.
“Kevin has played some of the best football of his career this season and I look forward to that continuing next season,” Holbrook said.
“It is great to have a local junior continue at our Club and I know Kevin wants the Club to be successful.
“He is excited to be part of that.”
