All news here please.
Lyon said to be almost re-signed.
He's been a useful player for the Seagles since he returned to the NRL.
Josh Starling - 3 years it is said.
Salary cap pressure will force Manly to release cult hero George Rose at the end of the season. The bulky forward has been told there is no room on the roster for 2014 and beyond after a recent recruitment meeting. Manly have a number of back-ended deals that kick in next season, most notably second-rower Glenn Stewart. Skipper Jamie's Lyon's new upgraded contract will also soak up much of next year's cap increase.
Jayden Hodges, a cousin of Broncos and Test centre Justin, to Manly on a three-year deal.
Has he what. Best centre in the game and has been for the last 3 years.
Damaging Sea Eagles back-rower Justin Horo has re-signed with the club for a further two seasons.
Horo, 26, who has been one of the outstanding buys of the 2013 NRL season, has now committed until the end of 2015.
Poor, poor Parra. Even your rejects go to other clubs and turn into good players.
Ahead of Manly's preliminary final battle with the Sydney Roosters on Saturday night, Williams is on the verge of signing a new two-year deal with the Sea Eagles.
It's a high-five for Manly fans as much as it is for Williams, who has scored a career-best 19 tries this season.
Manly seem to have the ability to hang on to quite a few stars.
I might have to leave Manly: Glenn Stewart
Be a pity - but they haven't lost many from their GF team of a few years ago. We have about 3 left from our 2010 GF team. The Dogs seems to be able to do it too - have to get their accountant ...
Would be a good pick up for a few clubs. He Is a very creative backrower.
He'd be a great pickup for any club looking for a wide ranging ball player.

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles utility back Peta Hiku has re-signed with the Club for a further three years, keeping him at the Club until the end of the 2017 season.
The 21-year-old joined the Sea Eagles in 2013 on a two-year deal and has made 22 appearances for the Club, while also debuting for New Zealand in the recent ANZAC Test Match.
The Sea Eagles brought the talented Kiwi across from New Zealand last year and the young utility is pleased to have secured his future with the Club.
“I’m really happy to have re-signed with the Sea Eagles,” Hiku said.
“The Club gave me the chance to prove myself in the NRL, so it’s nice to know I’m here to stay and I’m really looking forward to the next few years.”
“I’d like to thank the Club for the opportunity, as well as the members and fans for their support as always.”
David Williams has been suspended for the rest of the season for betting on games in which he was involved.
(1) The rules are very clear and have been for ages,
(2) It's not like he needs the money,
(3) In the age of anonymizing TOR routers, MAC address and packet spoofing and easily fake-able IDs for on-line betting accounts, Williams should be banned forever just for getting caught.
NRL statement on betting on rugby league

The NRL has suspended one player for the rest of the season and four other players for two games for betting on rugby league matches.
NRL draws a line in the sand on betting
In addition, three casual game day officials have been terminated and nine others suspended for the rest of the season for betting breaches.
And the NRL has warned that the penalties for betting on Rugby League will be even tougher in the future as part of a zero tolerance package of reforms.
Chief Operating Officer Jim Doyle said today an audit of betting records covering more than 1500 registered players, officials and staff found no evidence of serious abuse of the betting laws or match fixing.
But the NRL had imposed a range of suspensions, terminations and warnings to those who have breached the betting rules.
In addition to the terminations and suspensions listed above, first and final warnings have been issued to 12 registered NRL players, staff and officials who placed small, isolated bets on rugby league matches. They either had no connection to the matches or were unaware they were prohibited from betting on those particular matches.
None of the staff who received warnings were in senior roles or able to have any influence on the outcome of games.
In the majority of cases where warnings were issued, the bets were small – often as little as $5 – and were not on matches involving their own club.
Mr Doyle said the NRL regards betting as a serious issue and has immediately suspended five players who bet on matches involving their own club.
"There is no suggestion of match fixing or inappropriate conduct on the field by those involved, but the Integrity Unit is determined to protect the interests of all players, fans and members."
Mr Doyle said those suspended were:
• David Williams - suspended for the rest of the 2014 season after placing multiple bets on games - including several in which he was involved.
• Ethan Lowe - suspended for two games for betting on one game in which his club was involved – but in which he did not participate.
• Cody Nelson - suspended for two games for betting on one game in which his club was involved – but in which he did not participate.
• Hymel Hunt - suspended for two games for betting on one game in which his club was involved – but in which he did not participate.
• Slade Griffin - suspended for two games for betting on one game in which his club was involved – but in which he did not participate.
Mr Doyle said the new zero tolerance policy would see:
• Every player from every club will be required to sign a document demonstrating that they fully understand and will comply with the NRL's betting rules.
• All staff and officials will be required to confirm that they fully understand and will comply with the betting rules.
• Audits of betting records will be conducted more regularly to detect if any breaches occur.
• Players, staff and officials will in future face termination or suspension for any breach – no matter how small the bet is.
Mr Doyle said anyone who breaches the betting rules in the future can expect to spend a long stint on the sideline or lose their job.
"We are going to step up our education of the rules and every player, official and employee is on notice that there will be no excuses for betting on games in future," he said.
"The NRL will continue to work with the betting agencies to ensure there is no threat to the integrity of our game."
He should have joined WTF and used Bookie - where secrets are kept ...

Still talk of Stewart (Dogs) and Matai (NZW) leaving.
He will never get another club to pay him the supposed 900k for the last year of his contract. Still, he would be a handy signing for a few sides.
Manly Sea Eagles forward Jason King has today announced he will retire at the end of the season.
