The Gold Coast Titans have signed Brisbane Broncos prop Jarrod Wallace to a three-year contract starting in 2017.
The former Runaway Bay junior, who moved to Sawtell in NSW when aged 13, says he is looking forward to returning to the Gold Coast where many of his family still live.
"It's exciting being able to head back to the Gold Coast where I still have a lot of family and join a club that is really on the rise," Wallace said.
"I still know a few of the guys there and have kept in contact with Ryan James who is having a great season; it will be good to be reunited with him.
"But first I want to finish the season strongly with the Broncos who gave me a start in the NRL and have helped me develop my game and taught me a lot about the professionalism needed at that level.
"However, I see this as an opportunity to hopefully establish myself in the NRL and go back to where my junior career began."
