The ever reliable Reuben Garrick brought up another personal milestone at 4 Pines Park on Saturday in the win over the Wests Tigers.
Garrick’s 16 point haul through two tries and four goals in the 36-22 win saw him pass 700 points for Manly in just 79 games.
Since making his NRL debut for the Sea Eagles against the Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval in 2019, Garrick has kicked 255 goals and scored 48 tries to now sit on 702 points for Manly. He sits seventh on the list for Most Points for Manly behind Graham Eadie (1917 points).
This season, Garrick has scored 76 points through five tries and 28 goals in nine games.

In what was his third season at Manly, Garrick set a new club record for 'Most Points in a Season' with 334 points from 23 tries and 121 goals.
Garrick became the first player in rugby league to score 20 tries and 100 goals in a premiership season and broke the all-time record for most points by a player in the NRL regular season, beating Hazem El Masri’s record of 288 points set in 2004.
He also became the first player to score more than 300 points in a regular season and he now sits second behind El Masri (342 points, 28 games) on the '300 Points in a Season' list.
The 24-year-old also equalled the club record of 30 points in a match shared by Ron Rowles (1954) and Matthew Ridge (1996) and sits equal third with Mike Eden (1982) and Matthew Ridge (1994,1996) for most goals in a match with 11.
