Newcastle have completed their second player swap in the space of a month, signing Gold Coast's Greg Marzhew with hooker Chris Randall heading in the opposite direction.
Marzhew, a winger who scored nine tries in 17 games for the Titans in 2022, joins on a season-long deal, while Randall will remain on the Gold Coast for the next two years.
Their switch follows the trade between the Knights and the Wests Tigers earlier this month, when Jackson Hastings moved to the Knights as part of a player swap with David Klemmer.
Marzhew has earned a reputation as one of the game's most industrious wingers and joins Hastings, playmaker Tyson Gamble and forward duo Adam Elliott and Jack Hetherington in heading to the Knights during the off-season.
Randall, meanwhile, will compete with Sam Verrills for a starting hooking role at the Titans.
"The move gives both players a chance to play more NRL games and it's exciting for both Greg and Chris heading into 2023," Titans coach Justin Holbrook said.
