Memories...Jamie Lyon, Chris Hicks, and Matt Orford enjoy a victory lap after their win over the Storm in 2007.

In the build up to Thursday night's big clash at 4 Pines Park, we take a look back at five of our best wins against the Melbourne Storm on our home ground.

Enjoy this trip down memory lane.

Rd 11, 2006: 34-12

A commanding first half saw the Sea Eagles leave the field to a standing ovation from the Manly faithful.

Leading 16-0 at half-time, the Sea Eagles dominated the Storm to record their sixth win in 11 games under Coach Des Hasler.

Centre Chris Hicks crossed for two of Manly’s six tries in the win. Hicks scored 42 tries in 93 games for the Sea Eagles from 2004-07.

Rd 11, 2007: 13-12

A field goal from half-back and captain Matt Orford proved the difference in this Saturday night blockbuster in front of over 18,000 fans.

The Sea Eagles had to hold off a late fightback from the Storm to steal the victory after leading 12-6 at half-time.

Winger Chris Hicks and second-rower Anthony Watmough scored tries for the Sea Eagles as Manly made it 10 wins from 11 games under Hasler.

Rd 22, 2010: 26-6

A masterclass from exciting centre and captain Jamie Lyon was the highlight of this win over the Storm.

Lyon scored two tries and kicked five goals from five attempts for a personal haul of 18 points for the Sea Eagles, who led 18-6 at half-time. Lyon scored 11 tries in 22 games that year for Manly.

Rd 25, 2011: 18-4

Tony 'T-Rex' Williams scored two of Manly's three tries in a match that saw the Sea Eagles lead 14-0 at half-time.

However, the match is now known in rugby league folklore for a different reason as the 'Battle of Brookvale' after several fights broke out between the two sides.

It led to a fiery all-in brawl that saw Manly's Glenn Stewart and Melbourne's Adam Blair sent to the sin-bin. The pair then exchanged blows on the sideline as they left the field with both players then sent off. The NRL later suspended several players with fines also handed out.

Rd 25, 2013: 28-8.

The night belonged to Manly’s much loved ‘Wolfman’.

Winger David Williams crossed for a hat-trick of tries in the 20 point win over the Storm to be the toast of Brookvale in front of over 17,000 fans on a Saturday night.
