Things off the field have become as bad as they are on the field for the Manly Sea Eagles.

After a round five loss against the Gold Coast Titans the team was told to be in the hotel before the set curfew.

Unfortunately several players decided against doing so and instead opted to spend their evening visiting a strip club.

The players will now cop a huge hit to their bank accounts with The Daily Telegraph's Phil Rothfield reporting Sea Eagles chief executive Lyall Gorman is set to hand down severe fines.

Fines which will reportedly cost the players up to $10,000 each.

"The players were told after a team dinner following the loss to the Titans to return to the hotel," Rothfield said on NRL 360.

"There was a curfew. A number of players went out to the local strip club which has been reported on the Sunday night.

"Daly Cherry-Evans came back into the hotel and had a fight with his teammate Jackson Hastings.

"Trent Barrett's in a position where he can't drop players — they've lost their past three games, they're playing under the salary cap and he can't pick Hastings — so they've chosen the fines.


"Interestingly, they are not naming the players."

Sea Eagles owner and chairman Scott Penn addressed the incidents which all occured during the clubs trip to regional Queensland town, Gladstone.

"It was unacceptable behaviour," Penn told News Corp.

"The players had dinner and a couple of quiet drinks and were told to be back at the hotel at a certain time, but they ignored it."

The turmoil surrounding the club has continued to gather moss over the past few weeks.

Star playmaker Cherry-Evans was handed a $10,000 fine on Saturday for his involvement in the altercation with Hastings.

Despite the dust up, he claimed the duo held no ill will towards one another.

"It's not at all (affecting us)," Cherry-Evans said.

"Considering how quickly we moved on from the situation. There was no lingering awkwardness and it certainly didn't leave it as an excuse to play poorly today no way.

"It's fine. It's fine. We cleared the air straight away. It's a shame to see so much written about it considering how quickly we moved on."

Hastings however has since been exiled from the playing group and sent to the reserve grade after several altercations.

"I'm fully committed to doing whatever it takes to get back into that first grade team," he told Fairfax Media.

Manly currently sit 13th on the ladder with a 2-5 record through the opening seven rounds and with off field drama continuing to circle the club they could face further turmoil.
