Rose on the way out of Manly Published on July 13th, 2013 Written by: Sportal Salary cap pressure will force the Manly Sea Eagles to release cult hero George Rose at the end of the season. The bulky forward has been told there is no room on the roster for 2014 and beyond after a recent recruitment meeting. Manly have a number of back-ended deals that kick in next season, most notably second-rower Glenn Stewart. Skipper Jamie’s Lyon’s new upgraded contract will also soak up much of next year’s cap increase. It will prevent coach Geoff Toovey from any making any major signings. The situation is so tight Glenn Stewart was afforded the opportunity to look elsewhere next year if he could find a long term deal. He spoke to the Parramatta Eels but couldn’t reach an agreement. Manly will miss Rose, whose impact off the bench in tight games has been a huge bonus for the team.
