Josh Schuster’s time in Manly is set to come to an end with the Sea Eagles granting the back-rower an immediate release.

Schuster is playing reserve grade on a whopping $800,000 per season and extended for three years only last season.

The club’s decision to extend the 22-year-old until the end of 2027 has so far proved to be a costly one.

Coach Anthony Seibold confirmed Schuster was free to leave at the end of the season.

“We have given him permission to find another club,” Seibold said.

Schuster has failed crack first grade this season with backrowers Ben Trbojevic and Haumole Olakau’atu enjoying stellar starts to the season.

Trbojevic has been named in the centres this week as a replacement for Reuben Garrick (concussion) but Corey Waddell was picked to replace him and Schuster wasn’t even included on the extended bench.
