Ben­nett eyes Tay­lor re­turn

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

THE Ti­tans are fight­ing to re­tain Ash­ley Tay­lor with Wayne Ben­nett last night re­veal­ing his plan to bring the Queens­land Ori­gin hope­ful back to the Bron­cos. In a spicy pre­lude to the Bron­cos- Ti­tans derby this Satur­day night, Ben­nett broke his si­lence on Tay­lor to con­firm his in­ter­est in poach­ing the Gold Coast play­maker.

It was Ben­nett who re­luc­tantly agreed to re­lease Tay­lor two years ago at a time when the Bron­cos su­per coach was pin­ning the club’s longterm pros­per­ity on halves Ben Hunt and An­thony Mil­ford.

But with Hunt join­ing the Drag­ons next year on a $ 6 mil­lion deal, the Bron­cos No. 7 jumper is up for grabs.

“I’d be silly not to try and bring Ash Tay­lor back,” said.

“If he in­ter­ested in us and he is on the open mar­ket, I am in­ter­ested in talk­ing to him.”
