Sea Eagles and Hasler are poles apart on the tipping point when the long-term coaching goal emerges

Sea Eagles and Hasler are poles apart on the tipping point when the long-term coaching goal emerges

The lead candidate in Manly’s “succession plan” for life without Des Hasler has been named as the Sea Eagles consider accepting a contract extension for 2024.

Hasler’s future at the helm has been questioned after Manly dropped from the standings at the end of the season, though the seasoned coach will eventually have one last chance.

This is second The Sydney Morning Heraldwho reported earlier in the week that Hasler will not be fired but that Manly is unlikely to extend his contract beyond 2023.

This remains the case as of this weekend, with The herald reporting that Hasler and manager George Mimis are “poles apart” from Manly owner Scott Penn and new CEO Tony Mestrov over a possible one-year extension.

Sea Eagles management is also rumored to likely reject a move from Hasler’s camp to remove performance clauses from its current deal.

In case you missed it, Hasler would have received a 12-month extension if the Sea Eagles finished in the top six this year.

Should Manly agree to a one-year extension for Hasler, veteran rugby league journalist Brent Read said there may be a “logical succession plan” to replace him at the end of 2024.

According to Read, Sydney Roosters assistant coach Jason Ryles is the name “on the tip of everyone’s tongue” as the ongoing Manly saga goes away.

“Rylesy’s name gets a bit of a hype because of course we talked about Manly a little earlier and the plan to put a succession plan in place for when Des leaves,” Read said. Triple M on Saturday.

“Rylesy seems to be the name on the tip of everyone’s tongue. He has two years left at the Roosters and he doesn’t have an out-clause. He is locked in there and will not leave sooner. He is not in a rush Jason and I think he has seen what Craig Fitzgibbon and Ciraldo have done sitting there waiting for the right opportunity and I think Jason is enjoying what he is doing right now and what he is learning at the Roosters. He won’t break that contract ”.

But by saying that, Ryles wouldn’t have to do it if Hasler got his one-year extension and that’s why Read suspects something more might be at stake.

“In a way it fits perfectly because if Des gets his one-year extension which will take him to the end of 2024, Rylesy will be out of contract,” Read added.

“I think people look at it and think it’s a logical succession plan. There were other names in the mix: Josh Hannay, Ben Hornby, Dean Young. I think all things being equal, Rylesy would be the guy. He also has the same manager as Des, so I think they see it as the logical succession plan.

“Of course, it all comes down to whether Manly agrees and whether Rylesy decides they are the right club for him. They’ve had some instability off the pitch and obviously that’s a concern for any manager who goes to that place.

“But Jason did an extraordinary apprenticeship, was in the Melbourne system for a long time, went to England and worked for Eddie Jones and now he’s back and working under Trent Robinson at the Roosters. I think he’s ripe to be an NRL coach but like I said, he’s not going to break that deal. If Des gets her one-year contract, I think that’s the way they might want to go.
