The Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles were founded in 1947 and have played at Brookvale Oval since their inception. Known as the team everyone loves to hate, Manly enjoyed considerable success in the 1970s, winning four premierships in seven seasons, and more recently in the late 2000s and early 2010s.
Manly’s rebuild continued in 2016 under new coach Trent Barrett. While they were competitive across their first eight matches, a subsequent losing streak of seven matches as well as a five-game losing run to finish off the season saw the Sea Eagles finish in 13th.
