    THEY were supposed to be ripped apart after dual premiership-winning coach Des Hasler's defection to the Bulldogs, but Manly are about to secure another of their stars.
    Centre Steve Matai is set to sign a new three-year deal with the premiers, and the announcement is expected to be made next week. That will come on top of the long-term retention of halves Daly Cherry-Evans and Kieran Foran.

    Must be hard to not just write up speculative bullcrap every other day right now, would be enough to drive some alleged journalists to drink.

    This is awesome news. Once the ink is on paper i will be a happier man.

    "Only hooker Matt Ballin appears to be heading elsewhere at the end of the season; Canberra are understood to be ready to make a play for him."

    Matthew Ballin, if you are reading this...

    PLEASE RE-SIGN WITH THE SEA EAGLES, YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THIS CLUB IS PRICELESS!!!

    I don't know how we are successfully keeping all our players and I don't care. So far it has all been good.

    But if you could agree to terms at around 220k that would be great

    Cue the anti Manly propaganda bandwagon suggesting that they must be over the cap to keep all these internationals.

    Shame if we lose Ballin but if he's the only one we lose I'll be stoked. I was resigned to losing T Rex and Foran. Well done by the club to manage to juggle all the contracts.

    Said all along that we would keep all of them. Only real risk is Lussick, since we should not pay overs at this stage of his career.

    Starting to really enjoy 2012.

    Tonight's result does not matter. Will be stoked if we win. either way, we will be competitive.
