No turmoil at Manly, insists DCE
Daly Cherry-Evans has a simple message for those who think he is a disruptive force within the Manly squad: we're as good as gold.
Despite finishing second on the ladder this season, the Sea Eagles have been rocked by unrest rumours all year long following stalwart Glenn Stewart's decision to take up a deal with the Rabbitohs, their opponents for tomorrow night's qualifying final.
Anthony Watmough has been the subject of speculation linking him to Parramatta, last week taking to Twitter to deny a Sydney Morning Herald report that he had already signed a contract with the Eels.
Cherry-Evans, though, says the club's on-field results speak for themselves.
"Yeah, a lot of headlines have been untrue pretty much," the 25-year-old told SportsFan.com.au.
"Look, I don't know what parts of players' contracts are true or not but I know the parts about rifts and turmoil in the club, that's nothing for us to worry about as a playing group.
"We go to training every day, we do a good job and we enjoy each other's company.
"And I think that's all that matters, that we go out there and perform and I think we've been doing that."
