Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have today formalised their previously tabled proposal to Warringah Council for usage of Brookvale Oval for the 2016 season.
This proposal amounts to $220,000 per year for the NRL season, a figure that still remains significantly higher than the rates charged by superior suburban venues to other NRL teams.
