Manly Sea Eagles

Last updated: 2 December, 2016

Manly Sea EaglesThe Manly Sea Eagles were founded in 1947 and have played at Brookvale Oval since their inception. The Sea Eagles were at the peak of their powers during the 1970s where they won four Premierships out of the seven they have achieved so far in their history. Manly’s 40-0 Grand Final triumph over the Storm in 2008 is now the biggest victory margin achieved by any Australian Rugby League team in a Premiership decider.

After finishing a distant ninth in 2015 the Sea Eagles attempted a massive overhaul for the 2016 season. Head coach Geoff Toovey was removed to make way for rookie Trent Barrett with the club’s roster also being revamped. Results did not improve and the club finished a disappointing 13th.
