Titans dump Grevsmuhl, Vidot after a season
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.
