ADAM LUCIUS 10jun05 EMOTION will play no part in the Sea Eagles' decision over the future of hooker Chad Randall. The 24-year-old rake is set to go on the open market unless Manly come up with an offer by the end of the month. A new deal seems increasingly unlikely, leaving Randall no choice but to sever his family's 35-year association with the club. Randall's father Terry is one of the Sea Eagles' all-time greats, but sentiment will play no part in contract talks. ``We are sensitive to a range of factors and one of those is he is the son of a famous player,'' Manly CEO Pat Wilson said yesterday. ``But what we've got to do is make the best decision for the sake of the organisation. ``We've got challenges in regard to the salary cap and we've got to prioritise players with the skills we require. ``We will continue to review and assess our options.'' Randall has struggled for game time behind Shayne Dunley this year, giving him little chance to impress. But he remains hopeful Manly will not terminate his career at Brookvale. `I'm trying not to think about the future too much because if I do I won't get much sleep,'' Randall said last night. ``If it goes another couple of weeks then I'll be getting really concerned. ``But I'm confident something will come up - if not at Manly then somewhere else.'' Rejuvenated Manly second-rower Steve Menzies hasn't ruled out playing beyond 2006. Menzies, the leading try-scoring forward in the history of the game, is off contract at the end of next season. After a half a season of rich form culminating in his selection in the NSW side for Origin II, the 31-year-old is enjoying a new lease of life. ``I feel fine now and I'm enjoying playing. I'll get to next year and see how I go through pre-season,'' he said. ``I don't feel too slow or too unfit.''
