The Gold Coast Titans are looking to reinvent the club’s culture after winning the wooden spoon in 2019 and finishing the season with four wins and twenty losses, the worst record in club history.
The appointment of new head coach Justin Holbrook is certainly a step in the right direction as Holbrook comes from the winning culture of St.Helens, recently winning the Super League title in 2019 with the Saints and having an 80% win record as coach of the Merseyside based club.
A massive issue with the Titans in 2019 was effort and that was obvious from the on-field performances from multiple players who had played at a high level for previous clubs.
The new coaching staff should reinvigorate these talented players who we have not seen the best form since joining the Titans, creating a serious dark horse that could very well supersede expectations.
Titans boss says 'winning DNA' at top will inspire players.
"We are going to need to want to play for each other when we are up against a wall. Those three guys bring that and instil that."

One player in particular who could reach superstar status at his best is Ash Taylor, who despite his poor 2019 managed to get 6 try assists in 10 games which is a better try assist to game ratio then in 2017 when he was 2nd for try assists in the NRL and 2018 when he was 3rd.
It may seem unlikely on paper, but don’t be surprised if the Gold Coast Titans have a decent season in 2020.
