Sheffield Eagles sign former Wakefield Trinity prop from Halifax Panthers

Sheffield Eagles have signed forward Titus Gwaze from Halifax Panthers.

Gwaze, who came through the Wakefield Trinity ranks before switching to London Broncos in 2021, has signed a three-year deal with the Eagles

After announcing the signing in a typically humorous fashion on their Twitter page, Director of Rugby Mark Aston told the club website of his delight at landing the 23-year-old.

“Signing Titus on a three-year deal signals our intention as a club and our belief in how good he is now and will become in future,” said Aston.

“When he’s on the pitch, you know about it as he carries the ball how a forward should. He gets into the guts of the defence. With the pack we’ve already built, Titus is one of the missing pieces for us to have a good tilt at a playoff push this year.

“It’s an exciting time to be at the Eagles, we all know that and Titus does too.”

Gwaze added: “I’m extremely excited and grateful to have signed a three-year deal. It’s the longest I’ve signed anywhere so I’m over the moon and have been looking forward to getting started and meeting everyone.

“Once I spoke to Tubbs about his vision and where he wants things to go for the future, three years seemed to just fit and it wasn’t even a hard decision to commit to that long term!

“Where the club is going and the goals that are set sit right with me and are similar to my goals so it made so much sense to be here for three years.”

“It’s a great feeling knowing the squad is really good and just getting better and better. Competition for places is very healthy as it pushes me to learn from other players and work even harder!

“I’m all about working hard and earning your place, especially in new environments, so I can’t wait to just get going and really put my name forward during pre-season with the boys.

“It’s one exciting journey ahead and I am really grateful to have been given the opportunity.”
