DCE threatens to walk if Henry joins Manly


//

Manly Sea Eagles captain Daly Cherry-Evans is reportedly threatening to walk out on the club if Neil Henry is appointed to be Trent Barrett's replacement. 

According to a Seven News report, bad blood still lingers between Henry and DCE following the halfback's back-flip on a contract agreement with the Gold Coast Titans back in 2015. 

Cherry-Evans reportedly prefers John Cartwright for the head coaching job and others in the club have also reportedly thrown their support behind Cartwright.

During the turbulent time in 2015, DCE openly admitted to feelings of guilt after reneging on the deal and said he felt he "was letting Neil down".

“That was seriously the hardest part of my day," Cherry-Evans told Triple M.

“I sat in my car and searched for his number and it was a really slow process. It was just really tough because I feel as though I was letting Neil down.

“The only reason that would have me let someone down is to benefit me and my family. I did feel extremely uncomfortable doing it but I knew it was best to hear it from me first and I really respect Neil and the way he handled the news.”

Henry has been on the lookout for another NRL post after his unfortunate exit from the Titans in 2016.

Former NRL coaches Michael Maguire, Geoff Toovey, Des Hasler and Cartwright - have all been linked to the Manly role.

However, Maguire's concern over a lack of resources forced the ex-South Sydney premiership winning coach to knock back a chance to coach the club.

Unlike Maguire, Manly legend and former coach Toovey confirmed to News Corp that he's interested in leading the club again.

“Of course I would. It is the club I have been with for 35 years," Toovey said

“It has been a big part of my life”.

“To be on the outside now, it is hard to see the way the club is going,” Toovey added.

“I hate to see the club down on its knees. I hate to see the conflict that has been going on.

“I don’t want to bag the place because I do want to be involved.

“I just want things to be on the right path again.”

The uncertainty at the club has proven too much for some, with rising forward Addin Fonua-Blake reportedly asking for a release.

Despite the distraction surrounding the head coaching position, Fonua-Blake formed a dangerous partnership with Marty Taupau in the front-row and had a breakout season at Brookvale in 2018.

On top of all that, whispers have been growing louder that Taupau wants out of the club too but he is still contracted to the Sea Eagles for next season. 

Barrett is currently in negotiations with Manly officials in order to secure a severance payment before leaving the club.
