Cole was battling Manly United winger Joey Schirripa in trials, but the latter has been released back to his NSW Premier League club.

"I'm only human - obviously it's disappointing," Schirripa told the Manly Daily.

"I understand where Kossie was coming from though. The positive is I get to finish the year with Manly. I really want to put my best foot forward in the finals and finish the year on a high with the boys."
