Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will begin their Harold Matthews Cup title defence in Canberra on Saturday, February 5.
The Sea Eagles will head to the ACT for the opening round following today's release of the NSWRL Junior Representative draws for the Harold Matthews (U17s) and SG Ball Cup (Under 19s) competitions.
Fifteen teams will compete in the Harold Matthews and SG Ball Cup competitions with the top six teams moving through to the finals series which will be played over three weeks.
The Sea Eagles head into the Harold Matthews Cup as reigning premiers following an historic undefeated season in 2021.
It was Manly’s second Harold Matthews Cup title after claiming their first in 2018.
