    Panthers to sack Trent Barrett amid revelations he will take star forward Lewis Brown with him to Manly

    Trent Barrett is facing the sack as the Penrith Panthers assistant coach following revelations he is taking the club’s star forward Lewis Brown with him to Manly next year.

    The Daily Telegraph
    can reveal Kiwi star Brown has signed a three-year contract at Brookvale next season to join a beefed up forward pack that includes Nate Myles and Darcy Lussick.

    Barrett has signed as head coach at Manly but the appointment has yet to be made public out of respect to club legend Geoff Toovey, who still has the support of fans.

    Irate supporters carried out a protest at Brookvale Oval against Toovey’s dismissal on Friday. Toovey has been the heart and soul of the club since emerging as a tiny but courageous star in 1988.

    Barrett is on indefinite ‘gardening leave’ on full pay at Penrith but is expected to be moved on now that Brown’s signing has been made public.

    “You can’t have a coach working for two clubs at once,” said one Panthers official, “It just doesn’t work like that in rugby league.
    “We’ve always said we’d never stand in the way of any of our assistant coaches getting an opportunity at another club but once it’s done, it can make things difficult.”

    The $700,000-a-year signing of Origin forward Trent Merrin at Penrith next year was always going to put pressure on their salary cap and force players like Brown to look elsewhere.

    There is now concern Barrett could be interested in some of the club’s younger players, hence the need for him to part company with the club, probably after tomorrow’s match against the Bulldogs.

    As Ivan Cleary’s right-hand man, Barrett has intricate detail of all the Penrith player salaries and knows exactly when they are coming off contract.

    The Panthers have the best junior nursery in the NRL

    Barrett’s deal with Manly was done almost a fortnight ago with the Sea Eagles’ head of football Bob Fulton. No time frame was put on making the announcement.

    It is understood Barrett was even involved in contract talks with the $10 million man Daly Cherry-Evans before he backflipped on the Gold Coast Titans.

    Toovey is under contract until the end of next season and will demand a full payout.

    Troll or not I reckon there is some truth to this article.
    I hope Tooves goes on a 10 game winning streak from here, then things will get interesting

    So Penn & Kelly will be hoping we don't kick on and make the 8 or, god forbid, win the comp from here.

    What round do coaches have to backflip before? Does the 10 day cooling off period work for them? :p

    Ahh yes. That 1980's movie The Club. You may not like AFL but if your a Manly fan watch this oldie but goody embrace the hate and get behind the little man Toov's. They put a one million kg weight of pressure on him to be the leader when Des had enough of the off field ****. He didn't just keep the club afloat, but Toovs went on and prospered being 20 minutes away from a gf win.

    A change of owndership and affiliations and they want to kick this little champion again. Well **** them. Just like the movie lets unit against the board the Penns. Lets make the rest of this year about sticking it up em that much that we march on to victory and take this friggin comp. We are used to being hated in the NRL but perhaps it is about finding that motivation. Toov's may not have a job next year. But rather then the Penns have a reason to sack the little master, they sure will look ****ing stupid, if we rally, embrace the leader and march on and win the ****en comp.

    This pretty much is the writing in the sand for Tooves. He genuinely cared for the club and that passion really shows. Tooves is awesome and I'm sad to see this happen to him but to be honest, Tooves wasn't making the best choices in terms of footy. I would have preferred him to get one more season at least with a full roster and a better forward pack next year but unfortunately it probably won't happen.
