SYDNEY, Aug 1 AAP - Manly folk hero George Rose may not have the build of a modern-day player but the big prop is desperate to remain in the NRL even if it's away from his beloved Sea Eagles.

The laid-back 30-year-old is a welcome throwback to a bygone era with his quick wit and portly figure.

But the 2011 premiership winner could drift out of the game with Manly showing no signs of offering him a new deal and only six weeks of the season remaining.

"When it starts to get towards the back end of the year you do worry a little bit," Rose said.

"I could be at Centrelink come November (applying for) Youth Allowance or New Start."

The 2011 premiership winner started his career with Sydney Roosters before switching to Manly and overcome a badly broken leg that sidelined him for 18 months in 2007 to become the club's player of the year in 2009.

However, he's has been in and out of the side since Geoff Toovey took over as coach last year and now hoping his manager can find him a new contract from somewhere.

"I'm still unsigned and I threw a few hints out there but didn't get any bites back," he said.

"I'm not much of a fisherman. I'll have to leave it up to my manager now.

"I have always wanted to stay here. That's been the case since I came here.

"I'm not trying to be a millionaire, I just want to play footy. I feel fine and the body's fine.

"If I had any issues I would think about throwing it in. I'm happy to keep playing."
