Taylor, Peachey, Mitch Rein, Sam Stone, Jai Whitbread and Jonus Pearson have all been let go by the Titans.
The forced exit of Taylor marks an astounding fall by the playmaker, who was on $1 million a year over his final four seasons at the Titans but failed to live up to his price tag.
As the Titans surged late to snare their first finals appearance since 2016 this season, Taylor was shunted to the sideline as Jamal Fogarty and Peachey combined in the halves.
Taylor played 114 games across six years with Gold Coast, after crossing from Brisbane ahead of the 2016 season.
Peachey’s forced departure also marks a jarring fall for the big-name utility, who was considered a prized signing when the Titans lured him from the Panthers under then coach Garth Brennan ahead of the 2019 season.
The former Shark and Panther played 63 matches across three years with the Titans.
It’s more feasible that 26-year-old Taylor will land a new deal at a rival NRL club than 30-year-old Peachey, who might have to depart for the Super League if he is to continue his professional rugby league career.
“The Gold Coast Titans want to thank all six players for their contributions and sacrifices made during their time with the club and wish the players and their families all the best for what comes next,” the Titans said in a statement.
