Daly Cherry-Evans says he has agreed to play the rest of his NRL career at Manly after backflipping on his multi-million dollar deal with Gold Coast.
Manly CEO Joe Kelly announced on Tuesday that 27-year-old Cherry-Evans had been given “lifetime contract” with the club.
He declined to say how many years would be on the contract registered with the NRL.
Under the NRL’s controversial “round 13 rule”, Queensland and Australian playmaker Cherry-Evans had up until the end of round 13 next week to change his mind about joining the Titans.
“The opportunity to stay here and be a one-club player,” said Cherry-Evans of the reason for his decision.
“In rugby league job security isn’t something many people have.
“Its something I’ve been offered, and something I’ve been willing to take up.”
