Foran future in doubt as Manly young gun re-signs

Manly young gun Josh Schuster has re-signed with the club until the end of 2024, the Sea Eagles confirmed today.

“One of the NRL’s finest young players, Schuster has come through the Sea Eagles Academy after joining the club at the age of 14,” Manly said in a statement, also labelling him a “revelation in the back-row this season”.

There had been some speculation surrounding Schuster’s future at the club, given his preferred position of five-eighth, when the Sea Eagles last year lured Kieran Foran back to the club on a one-year deal for 2021.

But some sparkling ball playing in the back row has left no doubt about his skills as a playmaker, and that’s where Manly see him in the future.

His re-signing leaves the future of Foran up in the air, with the club having an option to extend his contract for another season.

It was reported last month that Manly had promised Schuster the No.6 jumper in 2022.

The re-signing of Schuster is another piece of good news for the Sea Eagles, who put any speculation of Daly Cherry-Evans leaving the club to bed earlier in the week.

Manly have won three of their past four matches, after enduring a winless month to start the season.
