    AXED Titans forward Chris Grevsmuhl was let go by the club over accusations he sold a number of his Jerseys on Facebook but never sent the goods out to fans who had already paid.

    The Titans has Link has been hidden. Please Register to view. that the former South Sydney and Penrith forward had been released by the club, but would not comment on the reasons why.

    However, it is understood it was due to the fact the troubled Grevsmuhl — who only joined the Gold Coast in March — took payment from at least 10 fans for Jerseys that he never delivered.

    In a message exchange obtained by The Courier-Mail, Grevsmuhl told one fan he needed the extra money to help pay for his wedding.

    Chris Grevsmuhl played four matches for the Titans.
    The Titans were then contacted by those who had been left out of pocket by the 24-year-old and have worked to pay back the fans from Grevsmuhl’s own salary.

    But now they have released him from his two-year contract over the incident.

    Grevsmuhl has battled a number of personal issues in the past, including depression, and it is understood the Titans are extremely concerned for his welfare.

    The Gold Coast did everything they could for him and his health while he was at the club but agreed to the release with his management earlier this week.

    Neither Titans CEO Graham Annesley nor Grevmuhl’s manager Col Davis would comment on the situation, but it is believed the once promising youngster will take another break from the game until his off-field issues are sorted.

    A spokesman for the NRL said they would not be conducting their own investigations into the matter as they felt it had been appropriately dealt with by the Titans.

    Grevsmuhl’s continued troubles are a worrying sign for someone who was once considered a future Origin player by Queensland coach Kevin Walters.

    Grevsmuhl also spent time at the Panthers and Rabbitohs.

    It is understood Grevsmuhl’s matter is not a police issue.

    Jayden Nikorima’s future in jeopardy amid allegations he has twice tested posited to illicit drugs
    Media has been hidden. Please Register to view.
    THE immediate future of Sydney Roosters star Jayden Nikorima is in jeopardy amid allegations he has twice tested positive to illicit drugs in the last 12 months.

    Under NRL regulations the $350,00-a-year recruit from the Brisbane Broncos faces a 12-week ban, the same former Sharks star Ben Barba was hit with this time last year.

    Nikorima is appealing the finding, claiming he has vital evidence that will clear his name.

    The Roosters have been trying to off-load Nikorima to help them fit superstar signing Cooper Cronk for 2018.

    Ironically, Cronk has signed with the Roosters in part to clean up the club’s culture and off-field dramas that have resulted in the sackings of Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Paul Carter.

    The Roosters and the NRL are refusing to comment under the strict NRL and ASADA protocol.

    Yeah, is anybody else suspicious about this besides me ?

    The same week Roosters sign Cooper Cronk, this gets leaked to media about another one of their half backs ?

    They seriously wouldn't do this to one of their players just so they can let him go and stay under salary cap would they ? They would ? Dude ... :sorry:

    Stars a bit strong isn’t it? Might be a star for Wyong. $350k for an ISP player. That’s a lot of hoot.
