James Roumanos to make NRL debut for Sea Eagles

Hard working forward James Roumanos will make his NRL debut for Manly Warringah Sea Eagles on Friday night at Accor Stadium, Homebush.

The 23-year-old will become the 640th player to play first grade for the Sea Eagles when he takes the field against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

A former Australian Schoolboys player, Roumanos played Harold Matthews, SG Ball and U20s for the Cronulla Sharks.

Roumanos then signed with Canterbury-Bankstown in 2019 and was part of their NRL squad in 2021.

It was a childhood dream for Roumanos who was born in Greenacre in the heart of Bulldogs territory.

His grandfather, Kevin Brown, played for Canterbury-Bankstown from 1958-1963. Brown’s two brothers also represented the club.

Roumanos made his Pacific Test debut for Lebanon against Fiji at Leichhardt Oval in 2019.

Having joined Manly this season, the 105kg lock/prop played 14 games for Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles in the NSW Cup where he averaged 109 metres per game.
