The Manly Warringah Sea Eagles today threw its full support behind inspirational Captain Jamie Lyon amidst media reports questioning his future at the Club.
"Jamie Lyon's position at our Club has never been in question - he will be very much part of our team next season," said CEO Joe Kelly.
Mr Kelly has also clarified matters relating to player departures following recent media speculation.
“The Club is going through an extensive review of its playing roster which occurs every season,’’ Kelly said.
“This is normal business practice across NRL clubs and is an evolving process.
“There are a number of players off contract at the end of the current season, and with any player who may be departing at season's end, the Club has been working through these discussions with each player's manager.
“By having the discussions now, we have been giving the players every opportunity to secure their NRL future elsewhere.”
