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.

In 2014 the Sea Eagles performed well again finishing the regular season in second place, allowing for the side to progress deeper into finals territory irrespective of win or loss in the opening elimination round. In the first round the side failed to fell eventual champions the South Sydney Rabbitohs, losing 40-24 – however, due to their regular season success Manly progressed to the semi finals. The Sea Eagles failed to convert on this second chance opportunity losing to the Bulldogs 18-17 and were consequently knocked out of the competition after a disappointing finals series.

by , 28 Jan 2015

Gold Coast half Aidan Sezer says he’s loves playing at the Titans and isn’t aware of any interest from rival NRL clubs. Sezer is off-contract at the end of the season and was linked to Manly last weekend in a report claiming the Titans were preparing a bid for Sea Eagles’ star Daly Cherry-Evans. Sezer, […]

Soaring Sea Eagles about to fall from the sky

by , 17 Jan 2015

Since reentering the competition following the Northern Eagles debacle, the Manly Sea Eagles have entertained the crowds, won several premierships and been consistent final contenders. They are the team that everyone loves to hate but defy the haters with success. That will all change in 2015. Much was made of the ‘culture’ of Manly in […]

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

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. […]

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 […]

Manly making the right moves

Manly making the right moves

by , 29 Oct 2014

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. A Manly junior, 31-year-old Watmough […]
