DALY Cherry-Evans laughed at the media this week but it was his football that spoke the loudest to put a full stop on a tumultuous week for Manly.
As talk of civil unrest at the Brookvale club and the future of embattled coach Trent Barrett took hold, Cherry-Evans had the perfect response to the firestorm engulfing the Sea Eagles.

The captain and chief playmaker led his team to a remarkable 30-8 upset of North Queensland in Townsville.

He is the ultimate leader. In the last game against the Roosters, he had a chat with one of the refs and you can tell they respect him. Ive seen so many other players get the STFU face by refs. Pure legend.

DCE driving off field change

The Daily Telegraph - Matt Logue

MANLY captain Daly Cherry-Evans has rediscovered his brilliant best but it’s off the field where he is making the biggest impact according to his teammates.

Sea Eagles players are crediting the team’s three straight wins to Cherry-Evans, who organised an emotional meeting after the side’s round two loss to South Sydney.

With six of the top 17 players new to the club, DCE wanted the team to understand the significance of donning the famous Manly jersey.

To achieve this, he sat down with the players to unlock the motivation driving them to succeed.

Hooker Api Koroisau believes the honesty meeting was a masterstroke from Cherry-Evans — a bloke he rates as a born leader.

“That was huge from Daly to bring the boys together and solidify the team,” Koroisau told The Daily Telegraph.

“You are a team of individuals until you learn how to be one team and play together.

“The boys really had to think about Manly and we had to give a reason why we wanted to play.

“People come from different parts of the world and from other teams, so sometimes playing for a club doesn’t really mean that much to you.

“But that (meeting) really made everyone think about what it means to play for Manly.

“I thought it was really big of him (Daly) to bring us together and now we have turned it around.”

Koroisau has no doubts Manly is now Cherry-Evans’ team, the sole survivor from the club’s 2011 grand final-winning side.

“I think the thing that has impressed me the most about Daly is that all his decisions have been made with the team,” he said.

“He hasn’t gone off individually or tried to do things by himself, he always includes the boys.

“That’s one of the traits of being a good leader.

“You don’t whip the lash from behind, you get at the front and start pulling with everyone.

“I think Daly is really starting to come out of his shell and he is playing some really good footy.”

Fullback Tom Trbojevic has also been highly impressed with Cherry-Evans’ leadership this season.

“He is our captain and our leader and we all fall back to him when times are tough.

“There was a massive bond built up over the off-season.

“The first two weeks we weren’t good enough and I guess we’ve had a massive change in attitude and all the boys are going out there with a desire to win and that meeting Daly set up as had a lot to do with it.”

I really enjoyed Daley's interview on fox the other night.
He alluded to the fact that he had to train harder and recognised that it was those 1% plays that were going to take his game to the next level.

I want to preface this by saying I am pro Origin and Test footy. I love seeing our players get selected for higher honours, and I want to see the Turbos selected this year.

BUT.........

I would love to see DCE tell qld and Australia to stick it. I do feel they have dropped him like a bad habit and given him no support. And I believe the thought that there is hunt, Milford, barba, Morgan behind Cronk and Thurston has driven this attitude. Now selectors realise Cronk and Thurston are on their last legs and the so called replacements have either left league or aren't as good as first imagined.

Add in the attitude of Tallis and other so called Qld legends who have treated him like rubbish I hope he says thanks but no thanks.

Hope he goes great guns and goes a long way to erasing his self centred past.

The public and media need to realise that Cherry is going to be a one club player and captain and give him the respect that he deserves.

He has won a premiership, Clive Churchill medal, represented QLD and Australia and is now proud captain of our club. People need to get over this 10 year contract rubbish and see it for what it really is. A great player that has achieved so much in the game and represents our mighty club with pride.
