Wont be a question of losing Brett Stewart but who the Eagles will let go to retain him. I dont mind Williams. Does quite well on defence (compared to our current 2) and has a nose for the line. I dont think he's anymore injury prone than most wingers. That neck break would have happened to anybody.

Stewart is lucky Gallop has gone or Manly would definately have to jump through hoops to get his new deal registered

They'll get rid if two or 3 lower paid players and it'll be sorted.

Must be a slow news day over there for the Telegraph to make a big thing of it.

300 k is quite a bit to lose. THe junior contracts are usually minimum 50 k so they need someone who is slightly good to get the chop. Or 6 bench players

50K is nothing. With the new TV deal that would be around 1% of a teams salary cap. Players on 50K are likely to be U20 or feeder club players that a club would like to retain for depth or development. You would be very hard pressed to find a player on the Warriors bench thats paying that amount. Krisnan Inu was reportedly on the $250,000 mark when playing here. You will always have exceptions such as Reynolds at the Bulldogs who was on 50K at the start of the season but you can expect his value to go up at least 100K now.

Fark how could you face George Rose running out for the Warriors.

Be as bad as Watmough or Stewart , having to find love in you heart for one of the worlds biggest wankers.

We wouldn't need any of those guys Manly's trying to get rid of; Williams looks half decent (definitely has pace) but injury prone last few seasons and he's been rumoured to be courting the doggies over the last few weeks - rewind to turner, might be rethinking about a move here if Williams comes to the dogs?

NRL Sea Eagles: Manly to shed players to keep Snake ?

26 Nov 12 @ 09:30am by James Hooper

George Rose could line up for another NRL club in 2013.

CULT heroes George Rose and David Williams could be forced out of the club because the Sea Eagles are in breach of next year's $5 million salary cap by $300,000.

Figures need to balanced immediately so the NRL can register Brett Stewart's new four year deal.

Salary cap auditor Ian Schubert travelled to the club's Narrabeen headquarters last week as part of an on-going audit as Manly try to resolve a raft of back-ended contracts.

Despite shedding a host of players, including NSW Origin forward Tony Williams and Darcy Lussick, Dean Whare, Michael Oldfield and Daniel Harrison, the 2011 premiers are still over the limit.

In terms of new recruits, the Sea Eagles have signed Richie Fa'aoso from the Melbourne Storm on a two-year deal and Brenton Lawrence from the Gold Coast on a three-year contract.

Manly chief operating officer David Perry met with Schubert last week to thrash out strategies on how the Sea Eagles can register Stewart's new contract.

The Sea Eagles had planned to move Brent Kite to Wests Tigers before coach Tim Sheens was sacked and the deal collapsed.

The club has also discussed shifting cult-figure prop George Rose, injury-prone winger David Williams and forward Vic Mauro in a bid to resolve the problem.

Mauro is on the cusp of moving to the English Super League.

If the Sea Eagles can move Mauro and Rose, the NRL is expected to rubber-stamp Stewart's new deal.

I'd take a punt on Wolfman. He's always injured and would cost a hefty amount, but he's a quality winger and if he stayed fit, would be worth the price tag.
