Justin Holbrook has signed his first player as head coach of Gold Coast Titans with the capture of Jonus Pearson.

The 24-year-old, who started his career at Brisbane Broncos in 2016, returns to Queensland following one season in Sydney at St George Illawarra.

The winger played 10 times for the Dragons in 2019 – scoring two tries. He has signed a two-year contract that will take him up to the end of the 2021 season.

The former Yeppoon Seagulls junior told the club website: “It’s good, I get to get my family back in Queensland and it’s a fresh start for all of us,” Pearson said.

“I want to rip into training and I’m excited about playing for the Titans next season.

“Obviously a goal is to get into that starting 13 but if not, I can guarantee I’ll be working hard and I’ll be looking to break into the side.

“From the couple of days I’ve been here I can see and feel a really good vibe around the place and I’m excited about the future here.”
