Out-of-contract Manly winger David Williams says he wants to re-sign with the Sea Eagles and retire a one-club player at Brookvale Oval.

The 26-year-old is a free agent in 2014 and faces the possibility of being squeezed out at Manly thanks to a number of high-profile contract extensions – Brett Stewart, Daly Cherry-Evans and Keiran Foran among them – taking up salary cap space.

The Sea Eagles have nevertheless made it clear that they intend to keep the Wolfman and Williams says he hopes to finish out his career at the club that gave him his start.

"I certainly hope [to re-sign]," Williams told the SportsFan Clubhouse on Tuesday night.

"It's all up to how the stars align, so to speak. They've got a lot of recruitment done [at wing] this year with Peta [Hiku] and Jorge Taufua playing well.

"I'd love to stay there; I'd love to finish my career there. I've found a home with the boys. So we'll see how it plays out."

The Sea Eagles take on Parramatta on Saturday evening, pitting Manly centre Steve Matai against Eels prop Mitchell Allgood.

Allgood was suspended for two weeks for punching Matai flush in the face during Manly's 50-10 victory in round 17, and much of the pre-game hype has centred over whether the Sea Eagle will seek revenge at Parramatta Stadium.

Williams played down the encounter and said he didn't expect Matai to go out of his way to get retribution on Allgood.

"Steve's very passionate in the way he plays at the best of times, so I daresay he's going to be fired up for this game," the Wolfman told the gang.

"But he'll just go about it his own way. He'll still hit as hard as he normally does no matter who the opponent."

Asked by Stuart Clark if he would enter the fray if a fight breaks out on Saturday evening, the Sea Eagles winger deadpanned: "I'm quite comfortable holding out wide and talking to the fans."
