Titans utility Tyrone Peachey.

Tyrone Peachey doesn't know what position he is going to play for the Titans next season and right now he doesn't care either.

The 28-year-old is just relishing what he called new coach Justin Holbrook's "clean slate" policy where a line has been drawn under what happened in last season's dire wooden spoon performance.

What players do from now until March will be Holbrook's barometer for team selection and for Peachey that is a relief after what he admitted was a disappointing season on a personal level.

Peachey played five-eighth, centre, second-row and off the bench in his 21 games in 2019. While he wasn't happy with his year, an initial conversation with Holbrook and the way pre-season training has unfolded so far has given the 2018 NSW Blues representative a new spring in his step.

"Personally I had a shit year. I wasn't very happy with it so I just want to rip into pre-season and see what happens," Peachey said.

"The coach said to me at our first meeting 'what position do you want to play?' I said 'I just want to get through pre-season and go from there'. He said 'yeah, I don't really know where I am going to play you but just have a good pre-season and who knows what could happen'.

"I just love that when he came here he said that everyone had a clean slate. All positions are up for grabs and I am really happy with that. Everyone has been training really hard and I hope that when it does get to the trials that the best players in the trials get the positions.

"It is good to see everyone is competing for positions because we didn't have that last [season]. This year has been very competitive."

Peachey, and the same could be said for his teammates, appears to be a lot happier than he was at stages of the Titans 2019 season where the club's 20 losses wore the players down.

"Last [season] was a bit tough. Everyone at the club struggled. Hopefully next year we can turn it around," Peachey said.

"This year [training] has been a lot more intense. Everyone is fitter. Hopefully we'll go a lot better."

2019 NRL Data Jam

Peachey has been embracing his role in the NRL School to Work program where he joined Tyrone Roberts and Ash Taylor in a special presentation to a group of Year 12 students on Thursday.

In 2019, the NRL School to Work program supported 38 Year 12 students across the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers regions who were all presented with a certificate and a shirt.

"It is always good to see kids get to Year 12. To see how happy the kids were and how happy the parents were for the kids was awesome to see," Peachey said.

"I was the first one in my family to go to Year 12 and I am proud of that. Hopefully I can get my kid to do that."
