The Manly Warringah Sea Eagles can confirm that International prop, Addin Fonua-Blake, has expressed his desire to relocate out of Sydney with his young family at the end of the 2020 NRL Season. He has sought permission for his manager to discuss this possibility with a small number of NRL Clubs.
Whilst Addin is a senior and highly valued member of the Sea Eagles squad and would be a huge loss, out of respect to him and his circumstances, the Club has today given its permission for the exploratory conversations to be conducted immediately. The Club will look favourably upon a request to release Addin from the final two years of his contract on compassionate grounds as long as the Sea Eagles receive fair and reasonable compensation.
The Club has advised Addin and his manager that this matter needs to be resolved promptly so that all parties can confidently plan for the future.
