PRIZE Gold Coast recruit Dave Taylor is examining his options after revelations his new club could collapse under a $35 million debt.

The Queensland Origin forward will hold talks this week with his manager to discuss the validity of the four-year, $1.8 million contract he agreed with the Titans last week.

Taylor, who agreed to join the club only three days before the full extent of the Titans' debt was known, has not put pen to paper and is only bound to his new deal by a verbal agreement.

Wouldn't think a verbal agreement would force him to stay

Even if he signed a contract he could get out if they hadn't given full disclosure of their situation.

A verbal agreement is just as binding as a written contract. However, like surfin says, the club keeping their troubled financial situation hidden should let Taylor off the hook.

This is true. They are seriously thinking of winding up the Gold Coast Titans as a business and restarting under a new name. That effectively means all players momentarily become free agents, even for 24 hours. If you were smart you'd take advantage of that.

I don't blame him at all. I wouldn't want to go to that basket case of a club. Them and Eels are like career poison right now.
