Manly Warringah Sea Eagles and Cronulla Sutherland Sharks will play for the annual Steve Rogers Memorial Trophy on Sunday in round 10 of the Telstra Premiership.

Rogers was an Immortal of the Cronulla Sharks, having played 202 first grade games and led the Sharks in the 1978 grand final and grand final replay against Manly.

He represented NSW 21 times and Australia 24 times. Rogers had many good friends at the Sea Eagles in Bob Fulton, Max Krilich and Paul McCabe through the Kangaroos tours.

The Steve Rogers Memorial Trophy was first played in March 2006 and had been played for each time the teams met up until the end of the 2010 season.

The trophy was then only contested just once a season at the current holders’ home ground should both clubs be drawn to play each other twice.

However, Manly and Cronulla agreed in May 2016 to return to the original format of playing for the trophy each time the two clubs meet to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Steve's passing.

Manly has won 17 of the 21 premiership matches contested for the Steve Rogers Memorial Trophy (excluding trials)

The Manly versus Cronulla match kicks off at 4.05pm at PointsBet Stadium on Sunday.
