Manley will ‘support’ players who object to Pride’s jersey

Manly coach Des Hasler says players who object to wearing an inclusive Pride jersey “will not play Thursday” as it goes against their cultural and religious beliefs.

Mr Hasler said he was concerned about the welfare of the players.

“The players will not play on Thursday and we accept their decision,” he said.

“These young people are strong in their beliefs and beliefs, and we will give them the space and support they need.”
