Coach Neil Henry yesterday spoke with the media to announce his Round 24 team but also to answer questions regarding his future and his relationship with the playing group.
A suggested feud between Henry and Jarryd Hayne was rubbished by the Coach.
"The 'feud' situation is a good way to energise and polarise people but there's no feud between us," Henry said.
"We're sitting together there [on Monday] doing team review in the front row. It's not like we don't talk to each other. That's rubbish.
"There's always a bit of banter before the game so we're both professional about that but we both want the team to do well and I need him to play well and I need every player to play well. That's my role as a coach.
"We didn't speak [last week] about him not being here in the future. We spoke prior to the game, we spoke in the team preview so that's not quite right.
"We were in a team environment, we prepared as we normally do, I said as many words to him before the game as I'd normally say.
"There's no feud between us and he'd admit that as well."
