    Looks like Brown & Mooney did their due diligence on Chris Grevsmuhl when they knocked him back. He just got released by the Titans after only joining them mid-season. His talent would have been useful but I think I read somewhere he has similar issues to Jamal Idris in not really caring enough about playing the sport at a professional level.

    Could have been anything Grevs. Kristian Woolfe said he could be as good if not better then Taumalolo when both were in the U20's together before they played in the grand final and he showed why on that day.

    Sadly chose the money and city life over being with his best mate and club that developed him. Gone off the rails ever since he left the Cowboys.

    A lot of people joining the dots. Who knows what's true and what isn't these days with social media.

    Fake jersey sale behind the sacking of Gold Coast Titans forward Chris Grevsmuhl


    RIKKI-LEE ARNOLD and TRAVIS MEYN, The Courier-Mail
    19 minutes ago



    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 confirmed reports by The Courier-Mail 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.

    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.

    He was in Walters’ emerging squad in 2016 and was part of the group that were suspended for breaking curfew.

    This is the second time this year the NRL has dealt with this kind of situation, after former Tiger Tim Simona was handed an 18-month good behaviour bond for auctioning off signed football jerseys for charity, only to use the money for gambling.

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