| January 28, 2009 12:00am Â MANLY are about to discover the downside of winning a premiership as they struggle to reward the efforts of their squad, many of whom are expecting better deals, and still somehow stay within the salary cap. Most pressing of all is the imminent expiry of captain Matt Orford's contract, and how Manly can do the Dally M holder justice while also rewarding the likes of Michael Robertson and David Williams. No wonder Des Hasler dislikes the salary cap so much. Hasler's captain wants to stay on the Northern Beaches but with English clubs circling, the price of retaining him isn't going down. The player's manager, George Mimis, conceded there is a delicate balancing act to pull off if Orford is to remain a Sea Eagle next season.

"But there aren't too many halfbacks in the world of his quality, and we need to make sure his status and his contribution are reflected in a new deal. "To be honest, if it just came down to the highest bidder Matty would head overseas but he enjoys his footy at Manly and is keen to stay."
