Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will play Parramatta Eels at UOW Jubilee Oval on Saturday, April 29, at 10am in the NSWRL Harold Matthews preliminary final.

The Sea Eagles advanced to the preliminary final following a crushing 46-6 win over Illawarra on the semi-final at Belmore last Saturday.

A week earlier, Manly crushed Central Coast Roosters 48-6 in the elimination quarter final at Hammondville Oval.

A Manly victory over the Eels will see them in the Grand Final the following weekend against the winner of the second preliminary final between undefeated minor premiers Newcastle and Canberra Raiders (1pm kick-off at UOW).
