Manly Sea Eagles

Manly Sea EaglesThe Manly Sea Eagles were founded in 1947 and have played at Brookvale Oval since their inception.

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.

I can’t believe Penrith are rank outsiders to win the premiership from here. After next weekend I reckon they’ll be one of the only two teams left that are still alive in the competition.
