Sea Eagles return home for big Storm clash

A return to their beloved 'Fortress' against a fierce rival may just be the perfect ingredients the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles need this Friday night to get back into the winners circle.

The Sea Eagles take on the Melbourne Storm in front of a sold out crowd at 4 Pines Park,Brookvale.

Team changes

The Sea Eagles have been boosted by the return from injury of winger Jason Saab (shoulder) and Nathan Brown (quad) injury.

The Sea Eagles are back on home turf at 4 Pines Park as they look to end a three-game losing streak.

Manly lock Jake Trbojevic said the home fans will again play a big part in lifting the Sea Eagles.

''It's been really good (at home) this year. Manly fans have been turning up and getting behind us,'' Trbojevic said 

Manly's losses to the Raiders, Dolphins and Broncos have seen them drop from fourth to 10th on the ladder but the total losing margin across the three games is just seven points.

The Storm sit second on the ladder with three wins from their past four games.

NRL Indigenous Round

The Sea Eagles will be led out for NRL indigenous Round by former Manly players Cliff Lyons and Joel Thompson, who will be joined by Northern Beaches Indigenous Junior Rugby League kids. 

Manly's Indigenous Round Jersey is symbolic of togetherness. Boasting a design by Kyle King, a proud Bundjalung man, the jersey represents the power of rugby league bringing together friends, family and the community.

This jersey will be proudly worn by the Sea Eagles at the Home of the Gayamaygal & Garigal Peoples.

Purchase the jersey here or at the merchandise outlets inside 4 Pines Park.

Get on Gaz!

Sea Eagles centre Reuben Garrick has scored five tries in his past four games.

Garrick heads into the round as the competition's leading points scorer with 98 through seven tries and 35 goals.

Still the greatest score!

40-0, it remains every Manly fan's favourite scoreline of all time following the historic 40-0 premiership victory over the Storm in 2008. The Sea Eagles still hold the record for the highest rugby league Grand Final margin in Australian history.
