Laffranchi to finish career in UK

Laffranchi to finish career in UK

Jetstar Gold Coast Titans forward Anthony Laffranchi has today announced that he will join UK Super League club St Helens from next season.

The inaugural Titan, who was one of the first players signed by the club in 2005 before the team's entry into the NRL competition in 2007, plans to finish his playing career with St Helens after accepting a two-year deal from 2012-13.

However, in a boost for the club, the Murwillumbah junior has been offered a job post-football with the Jetstar Titans - likely to be in coaching and development in the Northern Rivers area.

Jetstar Titans Managing Director said the club had been intent on keeping the 30-year-old in Titans colours beyond this season but the club was unable to compete with the offer from St Helens.
