Club finalises release of Clinton Gutherson

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have today finalised the release of Clinton Gutherson.

The full-back/winger was contracted for the 2016 and 2017 seasons with the Sea Eagles.

The Club recently extended the contracts of some of our experienced players and further enhanced our depth through the recruitment of players who can cover several positions. Accordingly it became clear that Clinton would no longer receive the opportunity to further develop through consistent selection at NRL level with the Sea Eagles.

Whilst the Club is reluctant to let Clinton go, we recognise the importance of his development at this stage of his career and wish to provide him every opportunity to succeed at another club.

The Sea Eagles wish Clinton all the best for his future in the game.

Due to recent media speculation, the Club wish to clarify the contractual status of outstanding young NYC Under 20s prop Liam Knight. Liam has had an outstanding season and was presented with the Club’s Russ Bull NYC Best and Fairest accolade.

Liam is under contract for the 2016 season. The Club will continue to develop Liam to ensure that he pushes for NRL selection in the near future.
