Mestrov apparently refused a requested transfer for one younger contracted Manly players towards the end of last season . quite within his and the club "s rights to do it again with Fifita . Fifita does look promising and most likely would have gained a bench spot for Manly "s opener just based on trial form . just how good he can get obviously yet to be determined . Dragons no doubt offering a bit more then his current deal but sure that Manly could find a way of offering an improved deal but no doubt would expect to see some consistent and good level footy this season or soon for any upgraded deal and especially for 2024 and ongoing . Mestrov should just put his foot down again and refuse any breaking of the contract . .
