Last year was far from Ash Taylor’s best season, with the 24-year-old only playing 10 games after taking time away from the game in the middle of 2019.

The former Indigenous All Star received a lot of criticism in 2019 which took a toll on Taylor, with the halfback recently telling NRL.com:

“I was pretty content on leaving the NRL and just going back to play park footy.”

People tend to forget just how talented Taylor is. Yes, he had a poor 2019, however other then that one season he has been fairly consistent.

In 2017 Ash Taylor had 19 try assists (2nd most in the NRL) and in 2018 he had 18 try assists (3rd in the NRL). Not to mention the 6 try assists he got in the 10 games he played in 2019.

A halfback’s primary role is to control their side in attack and set their teammates up to score, which you can see from the stats Taylor is very good at.

The Gold Coast Titans are looking to create a new culture at the club, lead by new coach Justin Holbrook.

Could a new coach and mindset at the Titans see Taylor return to career best form? Time will tell.

Will we see a return to form from Ash Taylor in 2020?
