Gold Coast wish Shaun Timmins 'all the best'

Jetstar Gold Coast Titans Managing Director Michael Searle this afternoon congratulated Shaun Timmins on an outstanding NRL and representative career and wished him well for the future, following a mutual decision by the pair to end negotiations that could have seen the former State or Origin and Test star playing for the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans next year.

After consulting a knee surgeon Timmins has been advised to end his playing career.

?I am very disappointed obviously from a Jetstar Gold Coast Titans point of view, but more so for Shaun that the surgeon?s prognosis on his injured knee wasn?t more encouraging, however I do want to thank Shaun for his honesty and understanding during our preliminary talks.?

? Shaun has been a tremendous player for St George, New South Wales and Australia over many years and would have been a fantastic inclusion to Coach John Cartwright?s squad, but at the end of the day there is nothing more important than your health and we would like to wish Shaun the very best in his recovery and for the future.? Said Searle.
