Ash Taylor is the Titans’ $1 million man, but now finds his career at a crossroads after being dropped for the biggest game during his tenure at the club
The Gold Coast have a golden opportunity against Newcastle on Thursday to take one step towards their first finals appearance since 2016.
The Titans finished 15th the following season, 14th in 2018, claimed the wooden spoon in 2019, before finishing ninth during Justin Holbrook’s first year at the club.

But on Tuesday, Holbrook opted to drop Taylor for Tyrone Peachey – a man who last played five-eighth in 2019 and who has been used sparingly from the bench this season – ahead of Taylor.
“We’ve got to pick our best side for this week,” Holbrook said.
