|Clear the runway, Hayne Plane is on Titans' radar
Rugby League Week
28 July 2016
Titans Coach Neil Henry is serious about bringing Jarryd Hayne to the club as the Gold Coast continues to build a powerful roster. Henry has already brought big guns Konrad Hurrell and Nathan Peats to the Titans, and signed rising Broncos star Jarrod Wallace until the end of 2019.
The veteran coach has told me that Hayne is firmly on the radar.
"We're in the game," Henry says. "Whether we can make a competitive offer and what his manager wants remains to be seen. But we're interested in him.
"Salary-cap compliance is a big thing and where you fit in a marquee player like that, so we've got to look and see whether we can make it fit for next year.
"That will be determined when we sit down and look at the players we want to sign, the players we've currently got contracts with and those we need to upgrade. If that all turns out then you've got to come up with an offer that's competitive."
