Reuben Garrick celebrates one of his three tries against the Eels in 2019.NRL

Can Reuben Garrick cross for another hat-trick against the Parramatta Eels this Friday night?

If he does, it will go a long way towards a Sea Eagles victory at 4 Pines Park and will also see Garrick set another club record.

Garrick and the great Ken Irvine share the unique record of being the only Manly players to score two hat-tricks each against the Eels since the two clubs came into the then NSWRL first grade competition in 1947.

Since making his NRL debut for the Sea Eagles in 2019, Garrick has crossed for nine tries in seven games against Parramatta.

The first hat-trick came in the 36-24 win at Brookvale Oval in 2019 before repeating the feat in the 56-10 victory at Sunshine Coast Stadium in 2021.

Reuben Garrick's two hattricks against the Parramatta Eels

Irvine achieved his first hat-trick in the 38-9 win over the Eels at Brookvale Oval in the opening round of the 1971 season. He then did it again at Brookvale Oval in the 53-8 win in 1973.

Cliff Lyons and Dale Shearer are the only Manly players to have scored a hat-trick each in the one game after achieving the feat in the 64-12 win at Parramatta Stadium in 1988.
