‘That’s going to be crystalised’

Mar 15, 2021

Manly Sea Eagles coach Des Hasler is set to sign a new two-year deal with the club this week, Nine NRL reporter Danny Weidler has revealed.
Speculation has been rife around Hasler’s future at the Sea Eagles as he’s now in the final year of a three-year contract and began season 2021 with a 46-4 drubbing at the hands of the Sydney Roosters on Saturday.
But Weidler said the dual premiership coach was this week set to sign on until the end of 2023.

“I think it’s really safe,” Weidler said on Nine News when asked by presenter Cameron Williams how safe his future is.
“There’s been a lot of speculation in recent times about Des Hasler and Manly, but he has a handshake deal with Manly which he did before Christmas and that’s going to be crystalised in a contract which will be announced as a new two-year deal – and that will be finalised in coming days.
“We’re going to see the ‘mad professor’ at Manly for another couple of years and that’ll be made official this week.”
