After wildly exceeding expectations in 2016 the Gold Coast Titans have had a shocker of a 2017.
The Triple M Grill Team's Matty Johns thinks star player Jarryd Hayne carries the majority of the blame.
“The most handicapping thing for the Titans is when he arrived at the Titans there’s so many of those young blokes, they would have been idolising him. He would have been their hero.
“But I’m sorry, the effort’s just not good enough. The effort’s not good enough.”
“Neil Henry, his style of coaching is very much about discipline. Everyone is on the same level. If you’re the most senior bloke or the junior bloke, everyone works hard,” Johns said.
“Hayne, it is no secret — that’s not his go.
“It’s really important that he gets out there and buys in every week and really leads by example as far as effort is concerned.
“When your hero leads by example ... then what do you do? You just follow. They’ve really lost their way the Titans.”
