Manly hooker Manase Fainu has been buoyed by a visit in jail from coach Des Hasler but is set to remain behind bars for at least another week.

Fainu’s bail hearing has been set down for November 11 after he was charged with allegedly stabbing a man at a church dance in Sydney’s south-west on October 25.

The 21-year has already spent a week in jail after being denied bail.

Hasler joined Fainu’s parents in visiting the young player over the weekend, offering support and comfort ahead of the Supreme Court bail hearing.

Fainu denies stabbing the man and insists he is a victim of mistaken identity.

Under the NRL’s no fault policy, he will not be allowed to play until after his case is heard in court.

Fainu is rated one of the game’s rising stars and a future rep player.

Manly is desperately attempting to strengthen its hooking stocks, with Hasler set to trial a number of players at No.9 should Fainu be unavailable for the start of the 2020 campaign.
