Hull FC: Gold Coast Titans 'hopeful' Scott Prince will stay in NRL
GOLD Coast Titans remain "hopeful" Scott Prince will stay at the NRL side as he uses this weekend to make a final decision whether to move to Hull FC.
However, even if he does opt to sign a three-year deal with the Black and Whites as expected, Titans chief executive David May says the club will respect their captain's choice.
Prince's agent, Steve Robinson, yesterday told the Mail his client would not be at the Titans in 2013 and that a severance deal was being worked out so he could join FC.
May, who is originally from Hull, says Prince has yet to make his mind up, but he acknowledges a final decision is imminent.

He told the Mail: "My phone has been on meltdown since your story yesterday morning.
"We will support Scott no matter what decision he makes and I expect he will make it in the next few days.
"Scott has a lot of things to weigh up and I don't know what the outcome will be.
"He is our current captain and a very important player for us.
"But Gold Coast Titans don't boast the history Hull FC have.
"Scott joined us at the height of his career and has given us good service.
"He hasn't given any indication yet as to what his decision will be.
"We remain hopeful of keeping Scott here."
Asked how quickly he would like to see the situation resolved, May added: "We start our pre-season training a week next Monday and I'd like to have it wrapped up by then.
"We have a lot of work to do to get ready for next season.
"As far as I'm concerned, no decision has been made and we await his decision at our end."
Prince, 32, still has one year left on his deal at the Titans, who hold an option for a further year, but he is known to be keen to link up again with Peter Gentle, who he worked with previously at Wests Tigers, at the KC Stadium.
