Ex-Super League boss “pissed off” by sudden exit

The Gold Coast Titans and head coach Justin Holbrook have today agreed to part ways, effective immediately.

Holbrook has made a strong contribution since joining the club in 2020, however as the club works towards the 2030 strategy of bringing success, the decision has been made to move in a new direction.

“We are grateful to Justin for his contribution to the club over the past four seasons,” said Titans CEO Steve Mitchell.

“We are here to bring success to the Gold Coast and in order to do so we feel that this is the change necessary to deliver on our promise which is to win premierships.”

Premiership-winning coach Des Hasler will join the Gold Coast Titans as head coach for the 2024 season and beyond. Hasler brings significant experience having coached 458 NRL games, reaching five grand finals and winning two premierships.

Holbrook has now spoken out in the Courier Mail.

“I just can’t believe it, I feel awful. Totally gutted,” Holbrook said.

“I did not see this coming at all, that’s what I am pissed off about.

“I could understand if they said, ‘Look you have three games or whatever time period to do something’, but to be moved on like this, I’m still coming to terms with it.

“If they were a bit more open about the way things were heading, I would have been able to digest this, but it’s hit me out of the blue.”
