Manly Sea Eagles

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 1970’s 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.

One ring to fool them all: Who’s the Manly jewel merchant?

by , 30 Nov 2014

Knickknack enthusiasts and wannabe street emcees have been kicking their own backsides for days after missing out on the street bling bargain of the century this week. For those unaware, I’m talking about the gaudy Manly premiership ring that was dangled online and snapped up by a Toowoomba man at the zaniest of mates rates. […]

Sea Eagles set to sack Tetevano

by , 29 Nov 2014

Manly are set to ditch plans to sign prop Zane Tetevano after he pleaded guilty in court in Newcastle to eight of 11 assault charges. The Sea Eagles had offered Tetevano a one-year contract last month, but the agreement had yet to be signed off by the NRL. The 24-year-old was axed by the Knights […]

The horror of sporting success: A Manly fan’s lament

by , 21 Nov 2014

As a sports fan, it’s funny how your priorities change over time – all I wanted was a Friday night football game. Of course everybody wants their team to win a title, but sometimes it’s just not within reason. So you keep it in the back of your mind, focusing on the small steps which […]

DCE or Foran: who should Manly sign if there was only money for one?

DCE or Foran: who should Manly sign if there was only money for one?

by , 20 Nov 2014

There’s nothing better than a good argument about rugby league players and I ran into a doozy at a Four Nations barbecue. About a dozen of us had gathered for the New Zealand vs Australia decider when someone asked: if Manly could re-sign only one of their halves, would they plump for Daly Cherry-Evans or […]

Manly must move fast on Foran, DCE: Ballin

by , 7 Nov 2014

Manly veteran Matt Ballin has urged the Sea Eagles’ new powerbrokers to swiftly sort out the futures of Daly Cherry-Evans and Kieran Foran, for fear a protracted re-signing saga could derail the club’s 2015 NRL campaign. The Sea Eagles’ premiership tilt this year was upset by player disenchantment at management’s failure to secure club legend […]

As a Manly fan, I am happy with the events of the last week. The Penn buyout to end the boardroom bickering was great news (and unexpected), and now the club can build and move forward. A new CEO will be able to end any animosity between the playing group and those in charge, and […]

In a big day for the Manly Sea Eagles, they have granted NSW Origin forward Anthony Watmough a release from his contract. Watmough had been widely reported to be seeking a release to join the Parramatta Eels in the 2015 NRL season, but until now no confirmation had been forthcoming.

Perry sacked by Manly Sea Eagles

by , 28 Oct 2014

Manly have sacked general manager David Perry in the wake of the NRL club’s ownership restructure. Perry, who has been in charge for four seasons, was aligned with former co-owners Quantum Group, who were bought out by multi-millionaire Rick Penn last week. The Penn family now owns 90 per cent of the Sea Eagles and […]

Rest easy northern beaches residents, that crumbling sound is not a catastrophic failure of the Manly Dam, but the toppling of the Berlin-esque wall that divided the Sea Eagles’ Pittwater Road headquarters. So with a splash of Penn family ink, most Manly fans are not only breathing easier but the rest of the competition can […]

Manly set to retain stars after ownership shake-up

by , 24 Oct 2014

Manly’s streamlined leadership structure could result in the retention of a number of Sea Eagles stars, after multi-millionaire Rick Penn assumed a 90 per cent stake in the NRL club on Thursday. Under Penn’s co-ownership with energy company Quantum, the Sea Eagles board was one of the most dysfunctional in the game, which filtered down […]
