Axed Toovey’s payout talks stall
MANLY and embattled coach Geoff Toovey failed to reach a payout settlement last night. Sea Eagles management met at 4.30pm yesterday to formally sack Toovey. The axe will still drop on Toovey but he has been given a stay of execution for at least another 24 hours. Toovey was expected to have a legal representative at last night’s meeting. Both parties discussed a financial payout but couldn’t quite finalise the deal. That is expected to happen sometime today.
