The playing futures of veteran Manly stars Brett Stewart and Steve Matai appear even bleaker, with the duo not named by their club for the NRL's season guide.

Considering we had Orford on our salary cap books for two years after he finished, there is no way Manly should get off with any salary cap reductions due to superstar players they have benefited from for a decade and multiple premierships.

NRL rejects Manly Sea Eagles' submission for Brett Stewart's career-ending injury

The NRL has rejected Manly's submission to seek a career-ending injury exemption for Brett Stewart that would have seen the now-retired fullback excluded from the club's salary cap this season.

The NRL is still examining the submission put forward for Steve Matai, who - like Stewart - has been dogged by injuries throughout his career on the northern beaches.

Good on the NRL for making a stand. Just who do Manly think they are trying to get away with something like that?

Manly reportedly set to appeal NRL’s block on Brett Stewart salary cap exemption

MANLY are reportedly set to appeal the NRL’s decision to reject Brett Stewart’s exemption from this season’s salary cap on medical grounds.

The NRL rebuffed the club’s claim to have the final year of the retiring veteran’s deal left out of the cap, saying it wasn’t a one-off injury which caused Stewart to quit the game.

The idea is right but the execution is wrong in this example.

You don't want clubs backending massive deals to attract or retain players knowing that they will pay out the last season and not have it count on the salary cap.

I don't think this is what Manly did, Stewart is a club legend, a one club man. He has been on a sizeable contract for some time.

I think the NRL are being a bit tough on Manly but in the end who cares it's Manly right?

Independent mediator may be called in to decide on Brett Stewart's retirement appeal

An independent mediator will be called in to resolve the disagreement between the NRL and Manly over Brett Stewart's medical retirement clearance if the Sea Eagles' appeal is rejected.

The Sea Eagles will clear almost a million dollars from this year's salary cap if they are granted the dispensation for the now retired Stewart and his former teammate, Steve Matai.

Disagree. The club **** the deal so they have to deal with it. He's been in decline for like 4 years. They've signed him for '17 despite chronic knee injuries so they should just have to cop it. Just like Parra should have had to cop Watmough who was a horrible signing.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Daly Cherry-Evans says Manly Sea Eagles won't make excuses for NRL form in 2017

New captain Daly Cherry-Evans admits Manly used the excuses afforded to them for their poor season last year, but won't be doing so under his watch.

"We definitely had a lot of excuses and reasons to not play well last year and we probably bought into them, myself included," Cherry-Evans said. "This year I feel as though the playing group won't give themselves an opportunity or excuse to lay down. I think that's going to be a great trait of ours this year."

Manly Sea Eagles vow to continue the legacy of Brett Stewart and Steve Matai

Unable to officially farewell two of the club's biggest legends at their first NRL home game, Manly players are vowing to continue the legacy of Brett Stewart and Steve Matai throughout the 2017 season.

Sea Eagles management are desperate to give the pair the send-off they deserve at Brookvale, however no plans can be made until the club's application for a medical retirement is ruled upon by the NRL.

Brian Kelly shoots for Steve Matai’s spot at Manly Sea Eagles

HE’S yet to meet Steve Matai in person, but Manly youngster Brian Kelly is hoping to replicate his feats in the left centre position at Manly. Brought down from the Gold Coast a year early by the Sea Eagles, 20-year-old Kelly is favoured to fill the key left centre role left open by Matai’s injury-forced retirement.

Manly Sea Eagles owner Scott Penn backs new CEO Tim Cleary in power struggle with Bob Fulton

Manly owner Scott Penn has issued support for new chief executive Tim Cleary amid an escalating power struggle with Bob Fulton, saying the former school principal had been given a mandate to be "across everything" including the club's football department.

Cleary has put himself on a collision course with head of football Fulton after making the Immortal's daughter, Kristie, part of his staff clean-out, and indicating a desire to have jurisdiction over football matters as he seeks to make his mark at Brookvale.

Also rumours of Moylan to Manly are a weird one without any compensation. Unless Panthers want to shed some cap space.

Top clubman but Thommo is the definition of mediocre. You know if Thommo is having a good game the opposition are having a shocker.

I don't know why they would be keen to sign him when Winterstein and Sironen are so similar.

I agree with these sentiments. Thompson's a bit of a flat track bully.

The Manly Sea Eagles have announced the signing of Joel Thompson, who has been granted a release from his final year on contract at the St George Illawarra Dragons.

Despite the potential of having to start the 2018 season with a restricted salary cap, the Sea Eagles have moved to bolster their pack by adding the versatile second-rower to the roster on a two-year deal.
