It's believed the Gold Coast Titans are the frontrunners to snare Konrad Hurrell and a Facebook post from his sister is adding fuel to the speculation.

"On to the next milestone," she said. "Here's to new adventures, dreams, goals. Love you my bighead little brother. Gold Coast here we come!"


The blockbusting but inconsistent centre has been linked to the Gold Coast Titans after being released yesterday by the Warriors following months of uncertainty over his future, despite being under contract until the end of 2018.

While he'd been linked with several English Super League clubs, it's believed the Titans are the frontrunners to snare the Tongan international.

Late on Wednesday, the club confirmed it was in discussions with Hurrell's management.

"We are also aware there has been other interest in the 24-year-old centre," a statement from the club read.

The Warriors and Titans clash in round 17 at Mt Smart Stadium and again five weeks later on the Gold Coast.

Titans' coach Neil Henry has made it no secret the club is on the hunt for an outside back.

Hurrell's manager Richard White refused to disclose which candidate was the favourite for his client's services.

"We've had various conversations in the last little while," he said."We're pretty close on a couple, but I just can't confirm that at the moment. We will know a bit more tomorrow."

White said Hurrell was overwhelmed by the interest in him.


Hurrell's departure could be the first of many difficult steps towards creating real change at the club.

The 24-year-old cult hero came to embody many of the perceived negatives that have defined the club in recent years. Most centre on a lack of professionalism and poor discipline.

"The best thing for him, (the) best thing for the club is that he go and find a contract somewhere else," Warriors managing director Jim Doyle told Radio Sport's Kent Johns.
