Let's reflect on some of the best wins of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles history as the Club celebrates its 75th anniversary season this year.
On This Day - March 21
Rd 1, 1976
The great Graham Eadie claimed 15 of Manly’s points in their 27-15 win over the Cronulla Sutherland Sharks at Endeavour Field.
The opening round Sunday afternoon match saw Eadie score a try and kick six from eight goals.
Rd 2, 1993
A crowd of over 10,000 on a Sunday afternoon at Brookvale saw winger Frank Stokes prove his versatility with a two try haul.
Craig Hancock, Nik Kosef, and Chris Ryan also scored for Manly in the 30-10 win in their first home game of the season under Coach Bob Fulton. Full-back Matthew Ridge landed five from six goals.
Rd 3, 1997
The traditional local derby between Manly and North Sydney was a real slugfest at Brookvale.
More than 18,000 fans packed into Brookvale for the Friday night encounter with Manly scoring two tries to one to take the two competition points.
Second-rower Daniel Gartner and centre Craig Innes scored for Manly to keep the Sea Eagles undefeated after three rounds under Coach Bob Fulton.
Rd 3, 2016
The Sea Eagles recorded their first win of the season under new Coach Trent Barrett with a 22-12 win over the Cronulla Sharks.
The Monday night match saw tries to hooker Matt Parcell, full-back Brett Stewart, lock Jake Trbojevic and winger Tom Trbojevic.
Rd 2, 2020
A superb performance from full-back Tom Trbojevic inspired the Sea Eagles to a 9-8 victory over the Sydney Roosters at Leichhardt Oval.
Trbojevic saved several tries with some desperate defence and also scored the team’s opening try in a match played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.
With the scores levelled at 8-all, Manly captain Daly Cherry-Evans kicked the winning field goal with four minutes remaining.
