Gold Coast Titans coach Neil Henry says he is confident Daly Cherry-Evans will honour his deal and link up with his side in 2016.

Nate Myles’ decision to leave the Titans for the Sea Eagles has increased speculation that Cherry-Evans would renege on his lucrative deal with the Titans to remain at Manly.
Manly coach Geoff Toovey said he hoped he could convince the star playmaker to remain at the northern beaches club, and perhaps rather cheekily said that Myles was helping to change Cherry-Evans’ mind.
“I don’t know if he (Toovey) was as blunt as that (saying Myles should act as a recruiter),” Henry is quoted as saying by AAP.
“I’m comfortable with where Daly is with it. He’s made a commitment here and I don’t see any reason to change those thoughts, hopefully it stays that way.”
Cherry-Evans last month signed a four-year deal with the Titans beginning in 2016, however due to the NRL’s rules he may back out of the deal before the cut-off of round 13.
The Sea Eagles have struggled so far in 2015 and currently sit bottom of the NRL ladder with just three wins from nine games.
