        Prop Brenton Lawrence has fired back at suggestions that there are factions and dissent among the Sea Eagles playing group.

        "We are the tightest bunch of guys I have ever played with," one of the key men in the club's premiership campaign said.

        "And you can see that from week to week when we show up and we are side by side making tackles and pushing in support.

        "When someone makes a break you have five or six blokes chasing up his tail to try and help him out."

        He said is what the playing group works on every day and every week.

        The speculation resurfaced this week with revelations that star centre Steve Matai had requested a release from the final year of his contract and was still disappointed by the circumstances in which his good mate Glenn Stewart will leave the club

        "I believe he is happy, as far as I know about a release he hasn't spoken about it at all," Lawrence said.

        "And I think that is a credit to him, putting the team ahead of his own concerns."

        Lawrence said in rugby league people come and go.

        "I love Stevey and I would love him to stay, I would also just respect whatever he is thinking and whatever he wants to do in the future."

        Lawrence said there was the business side of the club and there was the football team.

        "All we are really concerned with from day to day is the football team," he said.

        Lawrence said any outside influences involving the Sea Eagles brand really doesn't filter down to the playing group.

        "To be honest it is all water of a duck's back, it doesn't affect me and I know it doesn't affect a lot of the players," he said.

        Lock Tom Symonds admitted he was sick of talking about the topic.

        "I think it has been beaten up a bit more than probably is the truth," Symonds said.

        "If you look at some of the combinations that have been going really well and some of the footy we have been playing just shows that we are a tight-knit group.

        "You guys can come up with something new to write about hopefully," he told reporters today.

            It wont happen cause News Limited policy is to trash Manly at all costs as we are newsworthy to the haters.

            Its a shame that out club dont get the credit they deserve but its all in tune will allowing us to maintain a siege mentality and fly under the radar, long may it continue.

              Every bit of disharmony talk looks bad on Dave Perry. Which is exactly why the person who starts these rumours does so. The sooner this cancer has nothing more to do with the club, the better.

                  When will the media learn. The more they try to derail the mighty eagles the more we soar.

                  Mabye there all closet manly fans and they know dragging us through the media will help us. :)

                    One of the best articles I have read in a long time.

                    Brenton Lawrence is a true champion.

                      All this disharmony talk is really starting to make me confident about winning the comp this year.

                        Most players that leave Manly had to be dragged out the door kicking and screaming because they desperately wanted to stay. Even some officials, lol.

                        Hmmm.. who to believe, Paul Kent or "Matt Ballin, Brenten Laurence and Tom Symonds?"

                        His "Leak" friend is clearly Todd Carney. And the rumours were changed from Cronulla Sharks to Manly Sea Eagles by Kent.

                          Ok, what article is coming next to try and destabilise Manly's run to the 2014 NRL premiership?

                          I guess the comforting thing is that this media BS would be happening even if we were running dead last (yeah, like that's ever happened or will happen).

                          Matt should take over from Kingy next year as forward captain. He is a great competitor, speaks well and loves Manly.
