    I know that Manly is no longer affiliated with the SCSE but if anyone is interested, here is a link to their latest news:

    Thanks for the update. Im so pissed that we couldn't keep this relationship going. It was brilliant PR for the club. Good luck to sunny coast boys.

    Well the Manly boys who played for them last year are pissed off as well.

    Pissed off because they haven't been paid for their match fees.

    Thanks Jethro. I'll still be following the SCSE through the season & hopefully they will do just as good but I don't think they will.

    Keep the posts coming please Jethro.

    Yeah, I'll be keeping an eye on them too this year as they are still the team that I will follow in the QLD Cup Competition. It will be interesting to see if they keep their maroon & white strip and just play in their blue strip or even at some stage revert back to their Falcons name.

    As for the posting of SCSE news, I will see what the continued response is. If people want it posted I will continue posting it. I'll just have to find out from Dan whether a link would be sufficient or if he would want it posted in the News section like in the previous years.

    straight from the players. Some of them eg DCE were on next to nothing sign on and now they look like they will be getting nothing from SCSE.

    More SCSE news for those who are interested. Things aren't looking too good for them this year:

    I'm not sure on that one Kiwi but I do remember Scott Penn up there having talks with Justin Veivers last year. Whether he was up there representing Manly for something or for his own self interests I don't know. I'll see if I can find the Sunshine Coast Daily news article at some stage to check.

    What was the latest as far as Canberra and other NRL clubs using Qld Cup players?

    Well, I can't find the specific article that I was looking for (unless it was the year before). Going through the Sunshine Coast Daily historical articles, the only things that I can find in relation to Scott Penn's involvement in the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles is:

    1. as Manly's Chairman and co-owner who will sit on the Coast club’s board with Grant Mayer (http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2007/11/10/nrl-sponsor-hunt/)


    2. that he admitted he still harbours ambitions of bankrolling a Sunshine Coast-based club in the top league (http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2008/10/10/coast-nrl-team/ and again at http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2009/09/22/coast-unlikely-to-have-its-nrl-side-any-time-soon/)


    3. that he has invested heavily in the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles, with his contribution to the club understood to be in the millions and that he has openly admitted that he hoped for the Sunshine Coast to be the base for the fourth Queensland NRL side. (http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2010/01/14/manly-says-goodbye/)

    Cheers Jethro, it might have been a combination of those articles giving me that impression

    It's bad luck for the Sunny Coast, and like Jethro I followed them a bit...they were on ABC telly up here (on occasions) and I did see them play a couple of games but I imagine the NSWRL not allowing the players to go to QLD would have been the nail in the coffin

    Apparently Canberra won't have a nsw cup team and won't be able to use their qld feeder club and from memory they won't even be allowed to field their younger teams.

    NSWRL, and Manly's administration keep in touch with each other regularly to procure best practices from one and other.

    They are sending there players to Brisbane (Souths). That's why their Junior Reps got punted.

      St George and Shell Harbour are in dispute. Shell Harbour reckon they aew withdrawing from NSW Cup unless they get a better funding deal with St George.
