Ti­tans dump Grevs­muhl, Vi­dot af­ter a sea­son

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - TRAVIS MEYN PETER BADEL

THE Gold Coast Ti­tans’ re­cruit­ment has come un­der fire fol­low­ing the club’s de­ci­sion to cut Chris Grevs­muhl and Daniel Vi­dot af­ter one sea­son.

Grevs­muhl and Vi­dot are set to de­part the Ti­tans hav­ing col­lec­tively played only seven NRL games on the Gold Coast.

The punt­ing of Grevs­muhl is par­tic­u­larly mys­te­ri­ous af­ter the Ti­tans went through a lengthy process to have the for­mer Queens­land Emerg­ing Ori­gin squad mem­ber cleared by the NRL af­ter he quit Pen­rith last year cit­ing per­sonal rea­sons.

In March, the Ti­tans an­nounced Grevs­muhl’s sign­ing on a two- year deal un­til the end of 2018, how­ever the con­tract was for one sea­son with a oneyear op­tion in the club’s favour.

Grevs­muhl, 24, was rushed into the team dur­ing the club’s in­jury cri­sis and dis­lo­cated his shoul­der in his fourth game in Round 8, rul­ing him out for the re­main­der of the sea­son.

Vi­dot, 27, was signed to add size to the Gold Coast’s back­line. The winger made three ap­pear­ances.

Coach Neil Henry farewelled more than 1000 games of NRL ex­pe­ri­ence from his squad for 2017.

The likes of consistent cam­paign­ers Greg Bird, Luke Dou­glas, Josh Hoff­man, Nathan Friend, David Mead and Zeb Taia left the club.
