North Sydney Bears looking at buying Titans





  • They’re about as likely of getting on the Central Coast as any of us dating Megan Gale, so this is probably the next best option. So, this will be the sixth logo change in what 30 years?



  • No Chance….The Bronks will buy them to try and squash a second team in Brisbane push



  • Fake news.



  • North Sydney Bears put together $7 million bid to buy the Titans

    The North Sydney Bears are preparing a $7 million bid to take over the Gold Coast Titans and rejoin the NRL, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph. Bears officials have sounded the NRL out about the deal, after it took over the club when it went into voluntary administration in 2015.

    It is believed the Bears are not the only interested party, with a consortium of local businessmen also putting together a proposal to own the Titans.

    The NRL has maintained it will divulge its interests in the Gold Coast, but only after being convinced that any ownership change is in the club’s best interests. However, it is keen to step aside now and it’s believed a sale process will take place this season.

    The Bears have been in the NRL wilderness since being omitted from the competition in 1999, and are keen to resurrect their red and black colours and logo if their Gold Coast bid is successful. It is believed they will share games between the Gold Coast, the Cnetral Coast and North Sydney. That could prove a stumbling block with the NRL who would be reticent to undergo a rebranding process, with the Titans having played their first season in 2007.

    The Gold Coast club has had a history of failed ventures including the Giants, Seagulls and Chargers and could ill afford alienating supporters again. As an employee it’s not really my place to speak on it," Titans chief executive Graham Annesley said. "It’s really a matter for the NRL and there’s not much more I can add.’’

    Any talk of a sale could prove an unwanted distraction for the Gold Coast which is still searching for its first win of the season. The club has lost its opening two matches of the season to the Sydney Roosters and Newcastle and face another daunting assignment against the in-form Parramatta on Friday night.
    Coach Neil Henry will name his side for the clash on Tuesday afternoon but the club is battling a horror injury toll at the moment with Jarryd Hayne headlining the list of unavailable players.



  • Home games split between the gold coast, central coast and north sydney.
    And i thought we had problems.



  • Raising the capital to buy a team isnt the problem, being able to fund the team as an ongoing viable entity is the most important part of this equation that the Bears Consortium need to sell to the NRL.



  • Surely you’d play all bar one game at Robina, with a grudge game against Manly at North Sydney Oval?


  • Banned

    Gold Coast has never worked, Norths are heading for another disaster



  • This came up about 12 months ago and blew over pretty quickly. Would be nice, as I really miss the Bears. Hopefully they play games at North Sydney Oval. It’s a travesty the game has been taken away from there.



  • Are they thinking of changing the name to the bears? It makes no sense changing the identity of the titans to the bears. you would lose the supporters and not necessarily regain old bears fans.

    their best bet is to push for a 4th team in qld, second team in melbourne or team in perth.

    What about a second New Zesland team?

    They can’t even get one team to fire week in week out let alone spread the talent out two teams.

    Well maybe a New Zealand derby would fire up those Kiwis
