A year after the Titans made their first ever NRL premiership, it is finally time to begin the rebuilding process.
It is the time of the season when you look back on your season and make some big changes.
You make the call to the Titans, the club you were meant to join, and the season that you hoped would be remembered by your family and friends.
And then you get that call back and a new season begins.
Season 4 of Titans season three was an exciting one, as we witnessed a lot of new faces and a fresh start for the franchise.
The club began the year on the back foot with a six-match losing streak, only to pick themselves back up by winning a few of their remaining games.
The first three games of the second half of the year saw the Titans defeat the Gold Coast Titans, Newcastle Knights and Brisbane Broncos.
But the team took a step back in the middle of the first half of round three, losing five of their six games.
In round six, the Titans lost their next four games to the Brisbane Broncos, Western Bulldogs and West Coast Eagles.
They were unable to overcome a tough start to the season and ended up in the bottom three of the ladder for the first time in the season.
Then, in round seven, the team lost five of its last six games to go down to 10th spot, before winning four of their last five games to reach the grand final.
So while the season was rough, it was a great start for a club that has had a tumultuous start to it.
The season saw a host of players depart for the NRL, including halfback Jake Granville, who was released from the club.
Kane Linnett, who had a promising career before suffering a knee injury in round one, was released after just four games, with Josh Dugan leaving for Canberra Raiders.
Josh Hodgson, the man who started the season as the club’s most exciting recruit, signed a four-year contract with the club this season, a deal which he will be hoping to carry over into his final year with the team.
It is understood that Linnetts deal with the Raiders was due to end in June but that the Titans had to drop their offer of a one-year deal.

There was another surprise departure, with the Club’s best player, Sam Kasiano, leaving for North Queensland Cowboys.
Linnett signed a two-year extension with the Titans but had his contract terminated in the aftermath of the NRL’s supplements scandal.

He is leaving Titans for a three-year salary deal with an option for a further year at the Titans.
Says Titans CEO Stephen Silvester,Sam Kasol’s contract was terminated at the end of the 2015 NRL season.
He has joined the Raiders as a development player and has played in the past three seasons for the Cowboys.
It was a difficult season for the Titans after the departure of Linnetts star, Josh Hodgson and the club had to rebuild from the ground up.
As they rebuild they also had to deal with a host, with injuries and suspensions all taking their toll on the squad.
But there was a spark of life, as players such as Tom Burgess, Jack Bird, Tom Burgess Jr, Sam Kekua, Tom Liberatore, Ryan James, Jake Granberry, Tom Mitchell, Jack Littlejohn, Will Matthews, Luke Brooks and Luke Page all made significant contributions to the club in the opening two seasons of the new season.
Kakarou Cisse, who won a premiership with the Broncos in 2014, was an outstanding performer for the Club.
Sam Kasin, Sam Cisse and Jack Bird were key players for the team in 2015.
The Titans also had some key players depart this year, with Kane Linnell leaving for Newcastle Knights, and Josh Hodgkinson and Jake Granett for Canberra.
Despite all the upheaval in the club, the fans remain loyal to the Club, who have remained in the NRL for the past 18 years.
