After the signing of Wayne Bennett to coach the Knights in 2012, Henry was told he was unwanted for the 2012 season. He was then released mid-season in 2011 to sign a 2 12-year contract with the Gold Coast Titans starting effective immediately.[8]

Henry made his Titans debut in Round 20 of the 2011 NRL season against the North Queensland Cowboys.[9]

In 2014, Henry re-signed with the Titans on a 1-year contract for the rest of the season.[10]

On 29 October 2014, Henry signed a 1-year contract to return to his original club, St. George Illawarra Dragons starting in 2015.[3][11]

Henry was selected for the Dragons in the 2015 NRL Auckland Nines.[12]
