Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have come through the Auckland Nines in good order ahead of the club’s first trial matches next Saturday, February 11.
The only injury concern was to half-back Pita Godinet who suffered concussion after colliding with team-mate Curtis Sironen in the pool match loss to Parramatta Eels at Eden Park today.
The Sea Eagles were knocked out of the tournament after losing to Penrith Panthers 16-12 after finishing second in the Piha Pool after beating the Warriors and St George-Illawarra Dragons yesterday, before losing to Parramatta (first in group pool) today.
It was the second consecutive year the Sea Eagles have reached the quarter-finals of the Auckland Nines – the club’s best result.
The Sea Eagles return to Sydney on Monday before preparing for the trials against South Sydney at Campbelltown Sports Stadium next Saturday.
Three matches will be played at Campbelltown with the Sea Eagles tackling Souths in NRL and NYC trials. The Rabbitohs are hosting the trials.
The new Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles will tackle North Sydney Bears (Souths) in a NSW Cup trial.
Gates open: 3.10pm
