JUST IN: Mal Meninga Joins Gold Coast Titans AAP

The Gold Coast Titans have confirmed that Rugby League Immortal Mal Meninga has joined the club as Head of Performance and Culture.

A statement from the Titans said that Meninga would "help drive a winning environment" but stipulated that the Kangaroos coach's national coaching duties "would continue to have top priority".

"Mal is required throughout the year to promote the game, providing mentoring and assistance to young players and to assist with the elite level of the game," NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said.

"But since there are no Kangaroos matches until the end of the 2019 season he will have capacity to devote to the Titans' role.

"It is crucial that we do all we can to protect and develop rugby league in the heartland of the Gold Coast and northern New South Wales and I have no doubt Mal will help achieve that."

Meninga, who will relocate to the Gold Coast with his wife Amanda and their three young children, said the opportunity was "too good to pass up".

"I have said on several occasions I have no desire to return to NRL club coaching and that remains the case," he said. "But working with the Titans - the youngest club in the NRL - in this role allows me to contribute to the game at club level with new and different challenges.
