Manly Warringah Sea Eagles captain Daly Cherry-Evans is set to create another piece of club history in his superb career at 4 Pines Park on Saturday, August 20.
Cherry-Evans will move past the great Steve Menzies on the club record books for most first grade games played for Manly when he leads the Sea Eagles out against Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.
The 2011 premiership winning half-back will play his 281st first grade game for Manly, passing Menzies on 280 matches.
It will be another very proud moment for Cherry-Evans in a wonderful club career that saw him win a premiership with the Sea Eagles in 2011 in his debut season in the NRL.
Cherry-Evans has played in 151 wins for the Sea Eagles and has recorded 615 points through 74 tries, 147 goals, and 25 field goals.
