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.

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.

For so many years Manly have been a side that barely even needed a captain.
