Interesting..... Manly is resigned to losing the NSW and Australian back-rower and is in talks with Mateo. The former Parramatta playmaker is contracted to the Warriors until the end of 2016 but is keen for a return to Sydney. He has struggled to nail a starting spot in Auckland and the Warriors are likely to grant an early release to free up salary cap space. Unwanted Knight Willie Mason is also poised to join Manly as part of an overhaul of the forward pack. Mason won't be the only forward shifting from Newcastle, with Zane Tetevano also signing on, pending an NRL clearance following off-field indiscretions. Cronulla's Siosaia Vave will also help to fill the void left by the retirement of Jason King and the loss of Glenn Stewart and Daniel Harrison.
