Brett Stewart

The champion full-back sits at the top of the list for most tries against Newcastle with an incredible 14.

Stewart crossed for four doubles with his first double coming at Brookvale in his second season in 2004, a year that saw ‘Snake’ cross for 14 tries in 17 matches for Manly.

Of his four doubles, three of them occurred at home to just add to his mantra as the ‘Prince of Brookvale’. The other was at Gosford.

Stewart also sits on top of the podium for most tries for the Sea Eagles against the Melbourne Storm with nine in a career that spanned 233 games for Manly from 2003-16.

Jorge Taufua

The hard running winger is the only Sea Eagles player to have scored a hat-trick of tries against the Knights.

Taufua crossed for his hat-trick in the 32-0 win over Newcastle at Brookvale in round two of the 2013 season.

He also scored one double in his 11 tries against the Knights to sit second behind Brett Stewart.

Scott Donald

The winger affectionately known as the ‘Duck’, Donald made a lasting impression in his three seasons at the Sea Eagles.

Following stints at Nth Qld Cowboys and the Parramatta Eels, Donald crossed for an incredible 48 tries in 68 games for Manly from 2003-05.

Six of his seven tries against Newcastle came through three doubles, two of them at Brookvale.

Donald shares third place for most tries against Newcastle with seven alongside  Terry Hill, Jamie Lyon, John Hopoate and Craig Hancock.

Hill and Lyon both scored two doubles each against the Knights.
