Despite strong praise from club boss Joe Kelly there is continuing talk that Toovey is under the pump. The line is being pushed that players are not developing on his watch and Toovey knows losing the battle for Kieran Foran to Brad Arthur can't help – that would hurt even more than Daly Cherry-Evans. The pressure started to mount on Toovey after the loss of Glenn Stewart. Senior players wanted him to fight to the death to keep him at the club and to make the board offer him a deal. Since that time the tide has turned against Toovey. He wanted Anthony Watmough to stay – he didn't. And, of course, he wanted Cherry-Evans to stay. http://www.smh.com.au/rugby-league/...t-bob-fulton-for-support-20150314-1446rn.html I believe the part about senior players wanting Toovey to fight tooth and nail for Gifty, and then turning on him when Gifty wasn't offered a contract; that's information he would have been given by Choc and it makes sense if you piece the puzzle together. However, on what grounds are players not being developed by Tooves? We were one win off the minor premiership last year with a budget pack and a faded out due to injury. I don't think this comes down football, it comes down to Foran and Choc being disgruntled with Toovey, and getting along with Brad Arthur because he wasn't part of the Gifty fiasco (the ol' grass is greener on the other side scenario). Foran won the Manly player of the year two years running, and both he and DCE are commanding over a million a season, not based on what they did under Hasler 4 years ago, but what they are continuing to provide under Toovey over the last few seasons. We made a GF in 2013, and should have taken out the minor premiership last year. What is Foran expecting? To go to the Eels and become super human?
