The Brisbane Broncos have agreed to the immediate release of Jamayne Isaako who will join the Gold Coast Titans for the rest of 2022 before linking up with the Dolphins from the start of 2023.
The Titans are priced at 11/10 to finish in the top eight of the NRL this season and they will now have the 25-year-old fullback on board for the rest of the campaign.
Isaako has already agreed a deal with the Dolphins for the start of the 2023 season when Wayne Bennett’s men enter the NRL for their debut campaign but the Gold Coast is his next destination.
Titans coach Justin Holbrook is delighted to get such an experienced player in to his squad and believes he is a valuable addition as they chase a place in finals.
Jayden Campbell is the Titans starting fullback at the moment and Isaako will provide strong cover in a number of positions.
"He adds great depth to our outside backs and provides us with coverage across both the fullback and wing positions," Holbrook told reporters. "We've got strong competition across a number of positions and adding Jamayne gives us another exciting option to choose from in our backline.
"With a number of talented young backline players on our roster, Jamayne will no doubt be able to help with their development during his time with the Titans."
Isaako had been linked with a move to the Parramatta Eels and the Broncos are clearly happy to get the player off the early.
"The Broncos were happy to facilitate the request and wish Jamayne and his young family all the best in the future, both on and off the field," a Bronocos club statement read.
