NRL: All Hayne’s sacked coaches
BESIEGED Titans coach Neil Henry will break his silence on his future when he fronts the media today ahead of Thursday’s clash against the Eels at ANZ Stadium.
Titans hierarchy insist no formal decision has been made on whether to terminate Henry, who is contracted at the club until the end of next season.
But The Courier-Mail understands Henry is on borrowed time following his bust-up with Jarryd Hayne, with the Eels clash likely to be his final game as coach of the Titans.
Hayne is due to face his former club this week and Henry must decide whether he wants the two-time Dally M winner in his team for the showdown with the Eels.
The Titans board will meet again next week to discuss the Hayne-Henry affair but it is understood club bosses are in the final stages of brokering a severance package for the former Cowboys coach.
Sacking Henry will cost them $400,000.

If the Titans had moved on Hayne first it would have cost $1.2 million and left the Titans on an $8 million salary cap for 2018.
While he is contracted for 2018, the Titans will give Hayne permission to leave the club. However, he will not be an easy sell.
Hayne, 29, is not ranked in the NRL’s top 50 this season and has shown he is far from the player who won two Dally M Medals.
