    Shane Shackleton was this week denied an immediate release to join the Manly Sea Eagles, who were poised to snap up the out-of-favour Parramatta Eels prop on a second-tier contract. Shackleton – who represented City last year – has made just one NRL appearance in 2012.

    The 29-year-old’s demise coincided with an extraordinary social media attack on Stephen Kearney, in which he called the Parramatta coach a “f*&^wit” on Facebook.

    Shackleton has been stranded with NSW Cup feeder side Wentworthville ever since, but has performed strongly and collected two players‘ player awards in recent weeks. Off-contract and fearing his cards were marked with Kearney, Shackleton pleaded for a chance to showcase his NRL wares at another club.

    But at a meeting earlier this week, the coach maintained there were no hard feelings and promised Shackleton every chance of a first grade recall.

    At least he's honest.

    Would've been a decent pick up IMO.

    I would be happy with him at a cheap price.

    Kearney is a fu@kwit. He'll be lucky to survive another full year at Parra.

    I gotta say I think the treatment of Rose by the club has been poor. I was told on the weekend he was asked to lose 10kgs hes lost 8 do far.

    No offense to seymour skinner but I would rather George carrying 2kg extra than someone as inexperienced as Skinner tonight.

    I heard Rose might have also stuffed up which has contributed to his absence.

    I'd be very happy with Shackleton on a second tier contract

    Uv got to be kidding. George is a 10x better player than Shack. Shacks a plodder at best and belongs in NSW cup. Big George can bend the line and has great ball skills, Shack does neither. No thanx.

    Did someone forget to let Kearney know that parramatta are our feeder club?

    Mate, you haven't seen George play this year. I'm as much a fan of the big fella as anyone but he has really lost his mojo. He honestly doesn't deserve a crack at first grade at the moment & with the contract that he's got now he's probably going to be looking at heading elsewhere at the end of the year.

    I think the attitude of Rose has been poor . It shows that he has no self discipline . No offense also to skinner but he offers no impact of the bench . Hopefully if he plays tonight he can prove me wrong.

    It's a shame about Shackleton- would've done great Joe Galuvao impersonations

    Imo Rose even 20 mins tonight would have been good but I'm sure Tooves has his reasons.
    Skinner has better potential than some of the others we have had on the bench recently but lacks a bit of power in his game.
    Shacklton - the guy hits like a sledgehammer in defence & at Manly could have offered plenty imo.

    I agree George brings plenty to the table. Problem is, he then eats all of it.

    Mate thats poor form. I don't know you but I think it's safe to safe an nrl player whose 2kg over weight will be fitter than anyone on this forum making jokes about him.

    From RLW media release

    Well I didn't know that he was bothered by the social media comments - probably should have though. I am a big fan of George and would love to see him tearing it up in top grade.
