Sea Eagles vs Sharks NRL trial match information

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles and the Cronulla Sharks will use their NRL trial match on Sunday, March 1, at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, to help raise funds for the family of Fine Kula.

The ‘Fight for Fine’ appeal has been set up to support the Kula family to help Fine, a rising young prop with the Sharks, in his battle with brain cancer.

Training with the Sharks full-time NRL squad prior to Christmas, Kula complained of severe headaches. A series of tests later revealed a grade-four medulloblastoma brain cancer.

Kula was a member of Cronulla’s premiership winning Harold Matthews and Jersey Flegg teams and was a popular player amongst team-mates.

The Sharks have established a GoFundme page to support Fine during this challenging period.

The NRL trial at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium at Kogarah at 6pm will be a stand-alone game with the lower grade trials between the clubs set down for Henson Park, Marrickville.

Manly play the Sharks in a Jersey Flegg trial at 12pm followed by the Canterbury Cup trial between Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles and Newtown Jets at 2pm.

The NRL trial against Cronulla is Manly’s only pre-season hit out heading into round one of the Telstra Premiership season against Melbourne Storm at Lottoland on Sunday, March 15.
