Penrith Panthers utility Tyrone Peachey looks set to remain at the club and backlfip on his deal with the Gold Coast Titans, according to a report by Chanel Seven.

The 27-year-old, who was set to join the Titans on a three-year deal, is now reportedly keen to stay in Penrith following the sacking of ex-coach Anthony Griffin.

It it déjà vu for the Titans, after Manly halfback Daly Cherry-Evans’ backed out of a deal with the Gold Coast in 2015 and signed a long-term deal with the Sea Eagles.

Peachey’s management have contacted the Titans, who are said to to be expecting him to honour is contract.

Following Griffin’s axing earlier this month, Peachey told reporters “I got along good with him (Griffin).

“I wasn’t too happy when he put me on the bench but when I was starting everything was all good.”

The Panthers’ capacity to fit the NSW Origin representative’s into their salary cap remains an unknown.

However, Simon Brunson of Fox Sports has tweeted that the Titans aren’t aware of Peachey’s potential backflip, and still believe he will be at the club next season.

“Tyrone was asked about that during Origin camp and he said back then it (a backflip) wasn’t happening,” Brennan told foxsports.com.au Friday.

  1. Now Nathan looks like he will try to head to the Tigers at the end of the season they will have plenty in the cap.Gould has totally stuffed up here thinking he would get Ivan back and keep his son.Theres no way Ivan will work with him again but he wants to work with his son.Funny how Nathan wont look at contracts till Penriths seasons over.?Then the shyt can hit the fan

  2. Cherry-Evans did a backflip within the NRL governing body rules which I think was a 10 day cooling off period. Peachey is not entitled to backflip after signing months ago. He can’t fit into Penrith’s salary cap and his “walkabout” adventure has been signed sealed and delivered to the Gold Coast. There is no getting out of it now.🤑

    • DCE’s back-flip was due to some sort of June deadline that the NRL used to have which because of his actions they have now done away with. He had signed months before he back-flipped and did so just before the deadline, completely screwing the Tits over since the deadline prevented them from signing anyone else.
