Gold Coast’s Tyrone Peachey will look to depart the club prior to the June 30 deadline in a bid to return to the Panthers.

According to a report by NRL.com, Peachey and his manager Sam Ayoub met with the Titans during the week to seek an early release on compassionate grounds.

It comes just six months into a three-year deal signed last year, with Peachey’s family understood to be struggling to adapt to life on the Gold Coast.

The 27-year old was hesitant to join the Gold Coast and the club is reportedly willing to let him go if they are comfortable with the agreement.

The Panthers have an available spot on their roster after releasing Dallin Watene-Zeleniak on Friday night, opening up the prospect of a Peachey homecoming.

Peachey made his NRL debut at Cronulla in 2014 before joining Penrith in 2017. He has recently been moved to the Titans’ bench after starting the season in the centres.

Penrith and Gold Coast officials are yet to comment on the matter.

  1. The titans should allow this. Peachey is overpaid and hasn’t done anything for them. I always thought this deal wouldn’t be very good for the titans because Peachey doesn’t exactly have a favoured position that he thrives at rather he is very good at lots than excellent at one or two.

    The titans should then look to get Tautau Moga from the Knights on a cheap deal. He’s still only young and was really good at the broncoes before his injury and off field drama. He could prove to still be a really good centre with a move back up north into Queensland.

    They should also try make a play for Lachlan Lewis. He’s spent a lot of time this year in reserve grade due to Foran returning and Cogger being preferred but he’s only 22 and is from Queensland so he could benefit from a move closer to home. His uncle Wally Lewis obviously finished his playing career in the Gold Coast and starting his coaching there. Lewis is a really good ball runner and can help share the kicking duties with Taylor.

    • The Titans have again been successful in again taking a regular first grader & turning him into a reserve grader . Or bench player.
      Latu, big money & where’s he ?
      Cartwright, big money reserve grader & bench player.
      Peachey, from SOO bench player , starting line up player. To off the bench reserve .
      You could ask , why do the Titans want to buy Penrith players?
      Or, you could ask. Why do first graders want to go from Penrith to the Titans, to become reserves & state cup players?
      Here’s a chance Penrith, to buy him back extra cheap & get the Titans to pay for a lot of the contract.

  2. The titans are the biggest basket case club in rugby league they are the laughing stock of the game nothing has changed since having 3 or 4 club names changed since debut till today…
