THIS is the vital slip of paper that could end the civil war which is tearing at NRL premiers Manly-Warringah. But with the troubled club's co-owners no closer to peace yesterday and not having spoken for a couple of days, Scott Penn called on Max Delmege to "show me the money". Delmege has said the funds - believed to be for at least $400,000 - will be delivered this week but his estranged club co-owner Penn will believe the property tycoon when he sees the cheque. "If it has been pledged, we look forward to seeing it," Penn said last night. "That would be a good result if the cheque is forthcoming. He's got the bank account details so it would be a good outcome."

On the weekend Delmege flashed a bank cheque filled out for $500,000, saying that the unpaid money was an "accidental oversight". In another day of high drama yesterday: MANLY media manager Peter Peters accused Delmege of "un-Manly" behaviour; THE premiership squad left during the club's biggest crisis in a decade, ahead of their World Club Challenge against Leeds, and determined not to let the ongoing brawl derail their trophy defence; and MANLY'S highly regarded outgoing CEO Grant Mayer played down suggestions he could be enticed to stay on once his current contract ends in October. Penn said the outstanding cash was not the end of the matter and there was more to come. "This is what is needed now - all stakeholders need to contribute more over the coming months," he said yesterday.

"It is un-Manly to publicly support Grant Mayer on several occasions in the public arena and two days after saying that the two Delmege votes went against him," Peters said. Penn addressed the players before they left saying they should focus on winning in England and everything else would be sorted out by the time they got back home. "He assured us the Penn family was there for the long term and the problem was isolated at board level," said prop Jason King, adding it was not an issue for the players and nobody was talking about anything like that. "We've been training months for these games so that's where our concentration is," King said. "As far as the playing group is concerned we are professional rugby league players and that is what we are there to do." Mayer said the situation was just a disagreement among the board that will be sorted quickly. "I can't see it being a drawn out process, I think it will be resolved reasonably quickly," he said. The CEO still has plenty of support but, asked if he could reconsider his decision to leave he replied: "It would be very difficult at this stage. People have made decisions and I've made mine."
