It was a saga that took a while to be resolved, but things are finally settled – as the Titans officially release halfback Scott Prince from the final year of his contract with the club.
Prince, who was contracted to the Titans for 2013, sought a release which was granted, and so ends the halfback's six-year stint with the Titans.
Whilst the club is disappointed to see him go, they leave on good terms with Prince – as Titans Chief Executive Officer David May praised the contribution that Prince made to the club both on and off the field.
â€œScott has been an integral part of the Titansâ€™ image on the field and in the community, right from the beginning,â€™â€™ said May.
â€œHe led the team out in the clubâ€™s very first match in 2007 and has continued to do so ever since. He will long be remembered as one of t
he clubâ€™s most influential players.
â€œBut the reality is that all good things must come to an end. We wish Scott, wife Kristy and their two young daughters Taliah and Kahlen all the best with the next phase of their life, and I know everyone at this club will continue to follow Scottâ€™s career with interest over the next few years.â€™â€™
Titans coach John Cartwright was also full of praise for Prince, who saw the veteran halfback as a leader of the Gold Coast community.
â€œPrincey was a fantastic early signing for the club and a great role model for many in the way he handled himself on and off the field throughout his time here,â€ said Cartwright.
â€œHe was terrific as joint captain in the first three years until 2009 when he was named stand-alone captain until 2012. He is also well respected for all the good work he does in the community and while it is unfortunate that he is leaving us, we wish Scott and his family well for the future.â€
