Manly Warringah Sea Eagles can confirm that Sunday’s NRL Telstra Premiership blockbuster against the Melbourne Storm at Lottoland will go ahead as planned.
This decision has been made after consultation with the NRL and follows the announcement by the Australian Government this afternoon in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Club looks forward to welcoming its passionate Members and fans on Sunday for the round one clash in what should be another great contest at Lottoland.
The NRL has introduced revised match day protocols which the Sea Eagles fully support.
· Players to minimise contact with the public and non-essential personnel. This includes limiting physical contact with supporters at venues;
· Players to avoid handshakes, autographs and selfies to limit the risk of infection;
· Clubs to restrict dressing room access to include only players and essential staff;
Three games of rugby league will be played as part of a massive day at Lottoland with the NRL game kicking off at 4.05pm.
The Sea Eagles and the Storm are fierce rivals given their history in recent years and Sunday’s match is expected to be another great contest in front of an anticipated large home crowd.
Sea Eagles supporters will also be able to celebrate the 150th NRL game of popular clubman in winger Jorge Taufua.
