Jai Field.

Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.

And come on, 99% of players who arrive here from the NRL are looking to impress in order to gain a return back from day one, and I see that Cust has got an exclusion clause to go back to Manly after just one season - it happens, that's life 12,000 miles from home ! And in a pandemic.
No he doesnt. Its an NRL clause that if he ever goes back to the NRL he has to join Manly. There is no early release clause its a 2 year deal with a 3rd year option

That’s correct 😊
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

That's not true. According to Hastings himself he had several offers on the table.

IIRC we were intersted in Hastings at that time? Happy to be corrected.

Thanks for the correction.

However the way contracts work, I wonder how watertight that arrangement is especially if Manly (or any other NRL team comes knocking).

Remember the continued speculation all last season whether Hastings would come back, in spite of the contract in black and white ?

Isn't that saying "The fact we speculated on something that didn't happen last year makes it ok to do the same this year."?

People say he was a bit strange off the field, but no examples. Anything that can be posted? Would it make the papers in Aus?

I had no problem with this public actions on and off the field.
