The Gold Coast Titans will be making a massive announcement at Jupiters Casino tomorrow and the announcement is believed to be the signing of Wallaby and former Cronulla Shark Mat Rogers to a deal for 2008 and 2009.
Once we have confirmation, we will post the news immediately but the deal is rumoured to be in the vicinity of $600,000.
Rogers has had an injury plagued career in Rugby and is the son of late Cronulla Sharks legend Steve Rogers.
If Rogers does sign, this may impact the impasse surrounding Melbourne Storm winger Steve Turner, who signed with the Gold Coast and later pledged his allegiance to the Storm. The controversy surrounding Turner led to the NRL siding with the Gold Coast claiming the verbal agreement from Turner was binding.
