Sport: Titans deny NRL games to go to PNG

11:04 am on 17 November 2011

Gold Coast boss, Michael Searle, has rubbished claims that Titans home games could be transferred to Port Moresby in the future as part of "sell-off talks" with a consortium backing the Papua New Guinea NRL bid.

Searle confirmed he had been speaking with the PNG bid team for nine months but they had no formal ties.

He says they were sharing their knowledge and experience in player recruitment, performance and commercial viability whilst continuing to achieve our objectives in the community around health, education, training and employment.

Searle says the Titans will definitely continue to encourage and assist any initiative to involve PNG in the NRL.
