According to AAP, News Corp are reporting that the Titans halves-of-the-future, Ash Taylor and Kane Elgey, won’t re-sign with the club as long as head coach Neil Henry remains in charge.
Sound familiar? It should – essentially the same report came out of the Tigers five months ago, and that situation resolved itself with Jason Taylor getting sacked, and three of the four not re-signing anyway.
Ultimately, if Monday’s report that Henry is set to be fired is true, then that’s all academic anyway.
Meanwhile, Daily Telegraph reporter Paul Kent has told NRL 360 that the real reason that Taylor could leave the Titans is that he and Tyrone Roberts share a manager, and the manager is miffed that Roberts was offered a contract, and that offer has since been withdrawn. (Does that sound familiar? It should – the Tigers’ off-contract players all share the same manager, and they ultimately lost three quarters of them after offering Mitch Moses a contract and subsequently withdrawing it.)
However this all plays out, it’s nice to know that we’ve finally gotten all the way through 2017’s stories, and apparently we’re starting back at the beginning again.
