It is believed that Titans coach Neil Henry could not guareentee a spot for Taia after the heavy recruitment drive by the Titans at the end of the 2016 season.

The Club has brought in Kevin Proctor from the Melbourne Storm and  Jarrod Wallace from the Brisbane Broncos, whilst also locking away Ryan James on a long-term contract. Taia has fallen down the pecking order and believed it is better for him to move on.
