For the second time this season, the Sea Eagles will stage a triple header of matches at its spiritual home ground of 4 Pines Park on Saturday, July 16, as part of our huge URM Community Round.
Following on from the success of our first triple header in 2022 against the Wests Tigers in May that attracted a crowd of over 17,000, the Sea Eagles will proudly stage three big games against old rivals the Newcastle Knights, highlighted by the NRL clash at 5.30pm.
It all kicks-off at 12.40pm when Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles look to return to the winners circle against the ninth placed Knights in the NSW Cup.
Keep an eye out on talented young full-back Jake Toby, who when not scoring tries for Blacktown Workers, works as an electrician.
The second game of the triple header, the Jersey Flegg Cup, promises to be a beauty.
Several of Manly’s most exciting youngsters will be on show headed by NRL squad members Jamie Humphreys, Gordon Chan Kum Tong, Alec Tuitavake, and Zac Fulton to name a few.
The Sea Eagles have moved into eighth position in the race for the top five and will be searching for their fourth straight win against the second-placed Knights.
This is a very exciting young team full of talent, skills and toughness, so if you want to see the next generation of great youngsters coming through, make sure you are 4 Pines Park for the 3.15pm kick-off.
And then, it’s NRL showtime as the eighth placed Sea Eagles look to record their second win of the season over the 12th placed Knights to move further up a congested ladder.
The Sea Eagles will wear a special URM Community jersey featuring the maroon and white heritage base mixed with a ‘beachy’ theme, incorporating plenty of blue (representing the ocean) and silhouettes of iconic Manly beach, Manly ferry and 4 Pines Park.
And for those who haven’t yet experienced the electric atmosphere of the new Bob Fulton Stand, make sure you do. Apart from offering sheer seating comfort and great views, the players certainly do lift from the energy of this mini ampitheatre.
As for off field entertainment, you can hear from some terrific Northern Beaches buskers courtesy of community partners, Youth Up Front.
Plus, there is the best cheer leaders in the NRL in the glamorous Seabirds, who will have you up dancing and cheering along with much loved mascots, Ellie and Egor.
And don't forget to swing by and say g'day to former Manly premiership winning player Mark Carroll, who will be at the ground from 4pm signing copies of his much loved autobiography, 'Spudd'.
It's all set for a super Saturday, so what's stopping you!
