Henry urges fans to stick with Titans

SACKED Gold Coast coach Neil Henry has shown his class by throwing his support behind the struggling Titans.

He called on fans to stick with the club despite his controversial axing with two games remaining in the season.

"I am saddened not to be able to continue to work for them to produce a team that they can all be proud of," he said in a statement.

"But also, I encourage them to stick with the club and support the players.

"The Gold Coast is a rugby league heartland and deserves a team to cheer for."

Club boss Graham Annesley announced Henry's sacking on Monday, amid reports of a rift between the coach and star player Jarryd Hayne among other issues.
