The 20 year old former Murgon junior is over the moon about his prospects with the NRL�s newest club.
Cooper said, �It�s very exciting the club is close to home. It�s a new team and a �one team one town� set up again which is awesome. No matter where you sign, it is going to be a challenge but coming to a new club is going to be a bigger challenge personally for me to ensure I cement my spot in the side early.�
While being closer to home was a factor in Cooper�s decision, another was being under the reins of trainer Billy Johnstone who is the current Cowboys trainer.
�Everyone has always said Billy�s a hard man but if he sees you are putting in (the effort) then he respects that. But for sure it was a part of my decision and with his help I will be a better player�, said Cooper
Coach John Cartwright said, �Gav was sought after by a few clubs. We were lucky in that he didn�t want to leave Queensland. He�s young and enthusiastic and he can cover centre and back row and he will feature in the Cowboys run to the finals. I also believe he can play representative football eventually so we�re happy to have him.�
Also agreeing to a 1 year contract plus 1 year option with the Titans is former Burleigh Bears junior and current Cowboys fringe back row/hooker, Clint Amos. Amos has had outstanding success with the Toyota Young Guns and was awarded their Queensland Cup player of the Year for the past 2 years. He debuted in the NRL this year and became the 18th player to sign with the Titans.
