The silence continues to be deafening. As usual very little or no news regarding the re-signing of our great coach DES ! It worries me that it takes so long and with Penrith in the wings the longer it takes the more concerned I become. I know that he was offered an extension until the end of 2014 but does anyone have any further information on this ? Also a few days ago a saw a thread that mention that Manly was close to announcing a major sponsor ! Again things have gone very quiet and typical of the lack of communication from HQ. Is this true and will it happen. Desperate for information as I am sure we all are !
