Joe Greenwood has been explaining the reasons behind his move to the Gold Coast Titans.
The 23-year-old inked a three-year deal with the NRL outfit, effective immediately.
“It is a big competition out there and I have always wanted to challenge myself and see what it is like,” he said. “This opportunity came along when I was still young and had no ties. It was a tough decision as I have come through the system here but it is something I have always wanted to do.
“I watched the NRL when I was younger and it was something I always thought about so when the opportunity came I couldn’t turn it down. It will be a big challenge.
“There were a few other clubs interested but at this stage of the career I made the choice to go to the Gold Coast.
“They have been looking after me already and I am looking forward to getting down there and training with the boys.
“It will be sad to leave Saints – the club will always be deep down in me.”
You can listen to an extended interview with Joe later this week in the Podcast as well as reading the programme at the Wakefield game.
