Titans players behind Henry: Proctor

Senior Gold Coast forward Kevin Proctor says coach Neil Henry has shown he’s still the man for the job and insists he has the support of all players.

Proctor’s endorsement comes despite speculation the coach could be sacked as early as Monday, with the NRL club’s board expected to reconvene after meeting last week following reports of a rift between Henry and star fullback Jarryd Hayne.

“I reckon he’s the right man for the job … we’re all backing him as players and I’m hoping the board does that too.” Proctor said.

Proctor said reports Henry and Hayne, as well other players, were at odds was a “media twist up”.

“He (Hayne) is a great player and we benefit from having both (he and Henry) at the club,” Proctor said.

“Hopefully they can sort out their differences but I don’t think there’s much there to sort out.

“It’s been a bit of a media twist up to be honest and I’m sure they can work it out.”

Queensland Origin coach Kevin Walters is being touted as a possible replacement at the Titans, but Proctor argued Henry’s resilience under fire in recent days strengthened his case.

“I reckon he’s handled it really well to be honest,” Proctor said.

“He’s been getting hammered by the press and I feel sorry for him; he’s not the one out there doing the tackling or the running.

“Our bad performances have been backlashing on him and he doesn’t deserve it.”
