Gold Coast will hold crisis talks with coach Neil Henry and superstar Jarryd Hayne on Monday after their relationship soured publicly.
There are now serious doubts about whether both men can remain at the NRL club next season, with rugby league Darren Lockyer saying the partnership appears untenable.
Hayne told News Corp that Henry did not talk to him in the week leading up to Saturday's heavy loss to St George Illawarra.
He also said he would leave - despite having another season on his $1.2 million a year deal - if he wasn't wanted and would confer with his manager this week.
It's previously been claimed that Henry never wanted Hayne when he was signed mid-season last year, concerned about unbalancing his roster under the salary cap.
