Sea Eagles keen to make amends against Dolphins

The chance to quickly return to their best form awaits the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles in Brisbane on Thursday night.

The Sea Eagles travel to Suncorp Stadium for an away match against the Dolphins in round 10 of the Telstra Premiership.

Team News

Second-rower Ben Trbojevic returns from a hamstring injury after three weeks out. The Sea Eagles will be without Nathan Brown (hip flexor injury) and Lachlan Croker (concussion protocol). Karl Lawton will start at hooker with Gordon Chan Kum Tong added to the bench.


The Sea Eagles are hungry to make amends for their shock 26-24 loss to Canberra at home last Friday night after letting a 20 point first half lead slip. It was Manly's first loss in five games following a round six draw with the Warriors.

The Dolphins have recorded four wins from their past six games to sit fourth, one place ahead of the Sea Eagles.

Last Time We Met

The Sea Eagles only played the NRL newcomers once in their debut season in 2023, resulting in a 58-18 win in a memorable Friday night at 4 Pines Park.

Manly ran in 10 tries to three with centre Reuben Garrick crossing for a hat-trick. Tom Trbojevic, Jason Saab and Tolu Koula scoring two tries each.

Garrick finished the match with a personal haul of 30 points after also kicking nine goals from 10 attempts.

It's Brookvale North time!

For travelling Manly Members, Suncorp Stadium is affectionately known as 'Brookvale North' such is the huge supporter base the Sea Eagles have in Queensland.

It should be no different this time around with the Sea Eagles playing both the Dolphins and the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium over the next week.

And yes, the current deal of Manly playing a home game against the Broncos on their home turf in Magic Round ends next Friday night at full-time. 

The Sea Eagles will stay in Queensland ahead of Magic Round following the Dolphins game after a season that has already seen the team travel internationally twice and to the Gold Coast as well.
