Sea Eagles utility Jackson Hastings could soon be on the move once again.
According to 7Sport, the Sea Eagles have given Hastings permission to negotiate elsewhere, in the hopes of moving him on for 2018.
The issue is reportedly salary cap related, and not to do with any behavioural issues.
Hastings burst onto the scene as a teenager with the Roosters in 2014, and was viewed as the long-term halves partner for Mitchell Pearce. However, after failing to kick on, he moved on to Manly this year, where he’s once again failed to cement a regular first grade spot.
Still only 21, no doubt there’ll be some other club willing to give him an opportunity, if on name recognition alone. However, bouncing to three clubs in as many years wouldn’t be a great look, and you’d hope he wouldn’t soon need to find a fourth.
Hastings has played 43 first grade games for the Sea Eagles and Roosters.
