© Chris Hyde/Getty Images Dave Taylor will be on trial for his NRL survival in Canberra's only pre-season hit-out as he bids to be given one last shot at returning to the big time.

Coach Ricky Stuart told AAP that Taylor's performance in Saturday night's match against Newcastle in Queanbeyan would be crucial to whether he offered the former State of Origin star a full-time contract.

Taylor has been with Canberra on a train-and-trial basis in the off-season, giving him a lifeline to restart an up-and-down NRL career.
