Digital Image Grant Trouville © : Matt Ballin runs out  : Manly Sea Eagles v Wests Tigers at Brookvale Oval Friday the 11h of July 2014.

Matt Ballin has been named to play in game 200 for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles in thier Round 5 clash with the Canberra Raiders at Lavington Sports Ground, Albury.

The iron-man of the Sea Eagles' pack for the best part of a decade, Ballin becomes only the third hooker in Manly's history to play more than 200 games - Fred Jones (241) and Max Krilich (215)

The Easter Saturday game is also the first time the Club will be heading to the Border city, having never previously played in a regional area for premiership points. 

Geoff Toovey has been forced to make a few changes from the side that was defeted by St George Illawarra, with Captain Jamie Lyon sidelined through a groin strain and both Feleti Mateo and Josh Starling out with knee injuries.

Brayden Wiliame fills in for the third week in a row in the centres, coming of his first try for the Club, while Tom Symonds earns a recall in to the starting line-up for Mateo.

On the bench, Justin Horo and Ligi Sao have been called back in to the side, while James Hasson has been named 18th man after his three-week stint on the sidelines due to suspension.
