Elgey the Under-20s Player of the Year

Gold Coast Titans half Kane Elgey has defied his team's lowly finish on the ladder to be named the Holden Cup Under-20s Player of the Year for 2014.

A product of the Tugun Seahawks and a graduate of the famed Palm Beach Currumbin school, Elgey was named in the Holden Cup Team of the Year and recently penned a one-year contract to join the Titans' NRL squad in 2015.

Elgey recently received the Titans' under-20s players' player award where he spoke of the added responsibility handed to him by coach Ben Woolf as a key factor in his development as a player this season.

Although they finished the season in 15th position, the Titans were competitive in the majority of games they played and even knocked off the high-flying Eels late in the season.
