Penrith officials have now confirmed they cannot fit Tyrone Peachey under the salary cap if he decides to backflip on his three-year Gold Coast deal.

The Sunday Telegraph is reporting that Peachey may not join the Titans as his partner is uncertain about relocating their young family.

Peachey’s manager Sam Ayoub reached out to Titans officials about his client’s predicament and is quite optimistic he can work through the family issue.

“I’m reasonably confident, but I can’t commit to it 100 per cent,” Ayoub told The Sunday Telegraph. 

“Tyrone’s partner is a bit concerned. A few of the other boys that have gone up to the Gold Coast and their partner’s haven’t settled in being away from family.

“But we are working through it and it doesn’t mean he is not going to be at the Titans.”

But it is now a reality that Peachey cannot return to Penrith if he decides to knock back the Titans to remain in Sydney.

Titans coach Garth Brennan previously revealed he would be shocked if the NSW Origin superstar performs a Daly Cherry-Evans-style backflip on the Gold Coast.

The Titans were hit hard in 2015 when Queensland Origin star Cherry-Evans backflipped on a signed $4 million contract to stay in Manly.

The infamous “round 13” ruling which allowed Cherry-Evans to renege on the Titans agreed upon deal has since been abolished and Peachey would have to be officially released by the Gold Coast if he pulled out of the contract.



  1. Sucked in!!
    He should have consulted his partner and family before signing with the Titans,

    Grow some balls and honour your contract!!

    • 100% spot on. Peachey like Bird only saw the big buck sign. The NRL must make players stand down for at least one season if they do not comply with their contract. Saint George many years ago stood their ground when a player wanted out. Gordon Tallis decided he wanted to play for Brisbane when signed to Saints and Saints would not release him. So Gordon the big sook sat the season out until his contract expired. All teams need to take this stand against players who want to go walk about when they have signed a contract.🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱

  2. Can see what your saying. Penrith have had more that don’t want to honour a contract than most lately. Korisau ,Cartwright, Te Mare Martin, Moylan, Latu, Harawirra- Nera. Moylan pretended he wasn’t well , suffering with depression or some other crap. Had 4 years to go on a contract. As did Cartwright. Latu had 3 to go. Have read Harawirra – Nera signed a 2 year extension this year. Why release him to the Bulldogs next year?
    At least Peachey played out his current contract.
    The list of players that were on first grade money last year & left made 6 players. Add Wallace ( retired ), Peachey & Harawirra-Nera , Crighton at least to that this year. Someone isn’t doing their sums well at Penrith, if they aren’t way under the cap?
