Dogs deal won't distract Hasler: Cleary

5:43 pm on 1 October 2011

Warriors coach Ivan Cleary says speculation over Manly mentor Des Hasler's future won't distract the Sea Eagles in Sunday's NRL grand final.

Hasler has reportedly been offered close to a million dollars a season to switch to the Canterbury Bankstown side next year along with Manly recruitment manager Noel Cleal.

The report comes as Cleary, who will leave the Warriors for Penrith next season, and Hasler try to focus on the 2011 decider at ANZ Stadium.

Hasler has a year to run on a contract with the Sea Eagles that is reportedly worth more than $500,000 a year.
