Trent Barrett believes that the contract alone has the right to be the head coach of the club, and is planning to start working in Manly.
Barrett's return would have led to the scenes in a club that had assigned him instead of Des Hasler. Hasler and Barrett are faced with the expectation that they will be met at the Narrabeen headquarters.
Sea Eagles doesn't want to pay almost $ 300,000 to tear off his ties with Barrett and will be redeployed if he wants the contract money. The former NSW pivot lacked education, with lawyers representing both sides expecting a solution to break out. Both sides move to a deadlock, marginally for this to happen.
It is clear that Hasler has sympathized with Barrett's bad condition by passing through his scattered exit from Canterbury. Twice the premiere coach, Manly urged the hierarchy to hold a hearing to overshadow the second coaching shortage in his club.
