He might have scored four first-half tries to inspire Manly to a 40-24 NRL win over Parramatta on Sunday, but David Williams admits he has no idea if he’ll be at the club next year.
With Matt Ballin becoming the latest player to sign a new deal with the premiers this weekend, the former NSW winger, who has played just 60 games in five injury-hit years, is in the dark about where he will be playing in 2013.
Williams admits his appearance record is not great but denied he’d agreed a move to English Super League giants Leeds.
He is realistic about his chances of staying with the club though.
“I’ve got kids who’ve almost been playing two years who have passed me,” he said.
“I don’t know who tossed up Leeds but that’s an absolute porky.
“Someone tossed it up that I was doing interviews during the World Club Challenge.
“I tell you what – I had no interviews over there. I’m hopeful of staying. My manager’s doing it all – he’s the smart one of the relationship.
“But there’s bigger fish to fry around here than a lonely old winger on the sideline.”
