David Shillington Headed to England?

David Shillington could be offloaded to an England Rugby League club as the Titans look to free up salary cap space.

Shillington, 33, signed a 2-year contract with the Gold Coast Titans starting in 2016, but only managed to play 11 games in his new colours due to a pectoral tear that restricted him for almost half the season.

The Titans want to re-sign Nathan Peats and Konrad Hurrell long-term and have believed to have informed Shillington that he is free to talk to rival clubs or international clubs, as Coach Neil Henry can’t guarantee a spot in his starting 17 next season.

Hull KR have been linked with the signing of prop David Shillington, who almost landed his services before the start of the 2016 season.

The Gold Coast Titans prop was all set to join the Robins but a last-minute offer from the Titans saw Rovers instead sign Canberra Raiders, Dane Tilse, a team-mate of Shillington when in the Nations Capital and playing for the Raiders.

Shillington has played 215 NRL games across three clubs, debuting in 2005 with the Roosters before joining the Canberra raiders at the end of the 2008 season. Shillington has represented Australia 14 times and Queensland 8 times in State of Origin.
