Great news.

From Official Manly site:

Manly’s talented 22 year old 5/8 Travis Burns has agreed to terms to remain with the Sea Eagles. Burns rejected bigger offers from other clubs to remain with Manly.

The former Texas (QLD) junior has won a regular spot in the Sea Eagles backline in 2006 after joining the club from the Cronulla Sharks in 2005.

Manly CEO Paul Cummings said the signing of Burns was a boost for the clubs future “Travis is an improving young player who is quickly building his reputation at Manly and has proven he is one of the brightest young players in the NRL, with his future now settled he can concentrate on the big matches ahead” Mr Cummings said.

Burns said he was always keen to remain with Manly “I’m grateful for the opportunity Manly has given me and I want to be part of the club going forward” Burns said

Does that then mean Lyon / Bell may be in the centres? Then, what does that mean for Matai?

I guess Witt made the decision easy for them.
Hope he is undergoing anger management therapy as part of his contract conditions.

Why do you expect club media releases to be of decent quality?

Has anything changed recently?

Expect it is a short term contract, maybe one year, to give him the chance to show his full potential.

He is probably taking quite a bit less than he is after, for the time being.

Makes sense from both sides.

Manly can check his potential and Burns has the opportunity for big money in the not too distant future.

Sunday's paper said Manly were trying to offload him. I guess you take these reports such as "Manly recruitment team are meeting tomorrow" and other "reports" with a grain of salt.

Or we could start threads about them to assist with any agendas we may have................

Sorry to break up the celebration orgy, but I think I'll wait until he actually becomes involved in one creative backline move before I get too excited. Whoever heard of getting this excited for a tackling 5/8?

That was Wilson's dopey column wasn't it?

Just treat her with the contempt she deserves.
