How Des Hasler’s departure could see one of the world’s best players become available

Manly Sea Eagles have parted company with Des Hasler, and it is a decision that has caused widespread debate.

Plenty of people aren’t happy with the decision including Manly Sea Eagles’ star Tom Trbojevic who reportedly is “losing his patience” with the club as consequence according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

These reports have also been corroborated by Zerotackle who have also said that higher ups at the club have begun questioning Trbojevic’s value to the club.

He signed a massive $1.1 million deal but has only made just over 30 appearances over the last three seasons including less than 10 in the 2022 campaign.

So, with the fullback and Origin star dissatisfied with the club and the club questioning his value to them, it could see one of the world’s best players become available.

What adds to the intrigue around this is the fact Tom and his brothers including member of the Australian World Cup squad Jake wanted a clause in their latest deals that enabled them to leave if Hasler was sacked according to Zerotackle.

No such clause was added but it points to just how difficult of a situation this is to manage for the Sea Eagles with both Tom and Jake looking for exists.

It has been a frustrating year for Trbojevic who may be regretting the decision to postpone the World Cup as, given his form in 2021 winning the Dally M Medal, would have been the star man of the Australia squad.

Instead, after an injury hit season, he is forced to watch on frustrated as he loses patience with his club and considers an exit strategy for himself.

That said, this will still be easier said than done with Manly CEO Tony Mestrov telling The Sydney Morning Herald that there is no intention to move Tom on.
