Tay­lor treated just like any other Ti­tan

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

JUSTIN Hol­brook will not be of­fer­ing Ash Tay­lor any spe­cial treat­ment when he of­fi­cially starts as Gold Coast coach.

Farewellin­g St He­lens last night af­ter the Su­per League de­cider, Hol­brook said the way­ward No. 7 will be treated “just like any player’’.

Tay­lor (pic­tured below) walked away from the game in May to ad­dress per­sonal is­sues but has told the Ti­tans he will be re­turn­ing for the start of pre-sea­son.

The Ti­tans’ only mil­lion-dol­lar-a-year man, Tay­lor is ex­pect­ing a child and has told those close to him that he is de­ter­mined to res­ur­rect his ca­reer for the sake of his fam­ily.

A trip back to his home­town of St Ge­orge — near Toowoomba — helped Tay­lor con­quer his demons.

Hol­brook booked his ticket back to Aus­tralia last week and his first or­der of busi­ness will be a sit-down with his new as­sis­tant coaches Jim Dy­mock and Jim Leni­han.
