The 24-year-old centre was released by the Warriors yesterday.

Hurrell was born in Tonga but relocated to Auckland in his teens and began playing rugby league for the first time there.

He played 71 NRL games for the Warriors after debuting in the first round of 2012. He has also represented Tonga four times, including in the 2013 World Cup.

"It's great news for this club; in Konrad's 71 NRL games he has scored 41 tries which alone shows what a dynamic attacking player he is," Titans coach Neil Henry said.

"He will add depth to our outside backs which has suffered with the long-term injuries to David Mead and John Olive.

"At 24 he has his best football ahead of him and I look forward to him developing further on the Gold Coast."

Hurrell will move to the Gold Coast early next week.

Part of the release agreement with the Warriors is that Hurrell will not be selected to play in the round 17 clash between the Warriors and Titans this season.

Hurrell made just three National Rugby League appearances for the Warriors this year after falling out of favour with head coach, Andrew McFadden.

Hurrell's time at the Warriors has been marred by off-field controversy, in 2014 he videod himself as part of a sex act whilst driving.

He was also part of the group of Warriors who were stood down earlier this year for mixing medication and energy pills, although he denies taking the concoction.
