The Gold Coast Titans have signed Wigan utility back Dan Sarginson, an English Test representative, for the 2017-18 seasons.
The 22-year-old, who made his UK Super League debut as an 18-year-old with London Broncos, is a former teammate at Wigan of Titans forward Eddy Pettybourne who endorsed him to coach Neil Henry.
His best position is centre but he has been filling in for the injured Sam Tomkins at fullback for Wigan and can play wing and five-eighth.
“I came to Wigan to challenge myself and I really want to take it a step further now and challenge myself in the NRL with a really promising young side in the Gold Coast Titans,” Sarginson said from Wigan today.
“I spoke to Eddy Pettybourne and he said the Titans have a load of promising players and they have started the season really well, and the lifestyle is a lot different to here so I’m excited about that.
“I want to cement my positon in the England squad and I think playing in the NRL with the Gold Coast will help me do that and Eddy says the coaching staff are unbelievable, so I’m really looking forward to it.”
