Manly NRL players determined to move forward together after inclusion jersey controversy

Manly’s rainbow-themed jersey was meant to promote inclusion but it left the Sea Eagles divided and the players forced to pick up the pieces.

Their stance was a shock for some players who took the field against the Roosters, such as Jake Trbojevic.

“My number one thing is footy so at first it was hard to comprehend, but we’ve got a really clear understanding of it and I’m really comfortable with it,” Trbojevic said.

The loss has left the Sea Eagles in a precarious position as they now sit 10th on the ladder.

“It’s almost do or die for us at the moment,” Lachlan Croker said.

“Obviously it was disappointing to not be able to play with those guys that you play with every week, but the decision was made and who am I to say the decision was wrong?”
