The forward – who will turn 33 early in 2027, the last year of his new deal – looks likely to finish his career at the Auckland club.

Barnett has thrived under Warriors coach Andrew Webster since being granted a release from his Newcastle contract to move across the Tasman last season.

Able to play either through the middle or on an edge, Barnett was a member of the forward pack that pushed the Warriors to a preliminary-final berth last year.

This season, he is averaging 151 metres per game, more than in any other campaign of his career.

“At 23, I feel like I had to take this opportunity now. I’m under no illusions and understand that this will be a massive challenge,” Gordon said.

“It is very exciting for the Gold Coast Titans and very exciting for the game,” Titans CEO Steve Mitchell said.

“Carter is going to be a great addition as a spine player and utility. He has an opportunity to work with Des Hasler and with a great squad.”

Manly forward Nathan Brown has been rewarded for his hard work and strong form in the 2024 season, with club management upgrading his train and trial contract to an extension through until 2026.

The former Blues representative has had a patchy few years, playing 10 games with the Roosters last season to then be handed a lifeline by the Sea Eagles.

“We are very happy now to extend Nathan for another two years which is a great reward for his performances off the bench this season,” Seibold said.


“The biggest thing I can say about Nathan is that in a really short time here, he has become a bit of a cult hero at Manly because people like the way he plays.”

Brown’s career took off when he joined Parramatta in 2017, contributing to their success as a loose forward and impact player.

Trey Mooney has impressed at the Raiders – subsequently signing a three-year contract extension which keeps him at the Green Machine until 2027.

The 22-year-old has featured in Canberra’s last seven matches off the bench since returning to the NRL team in Round six.

Roosters utility back Junior Pauga has extended his contract with the Tricolours, staying in Bondi until the end of the 2027 season.
