It is hard to see Manly mounting any sort of finals charge if their skipper has an ordinary year. DCE is one of the best playmakers in the competition. Having the Five-Eighth that partnered Daly in winning the 2011 Grand Final should only boost his performance this year. Daly scored 6 tries, 20 try assists and 11 forced drop outs last season and with Kieran Foran partnering him we should be expecting the same if not more from him this year.
After a very disappointing injuring that ended his 2020 season a lot earlier than most people hoped and not coming back until round 3 this year due to another injury in the off season, we are expecting Tom to come back onto the field and prove he is still one of the top fullbacks in the game. Manly won 4 of the 7 games Tom played in 2020 while losing 10 of the 13 games he wasn’t in. If Tom can stay fit and healthy he will be on to watch.
Andrew Johns had this to say after one of Manly’s trial games in 2018: “Jake’s timing of his pass and his understanding of when to pass is as good as any halfback in the game.” The elder of the Trbojevic brothers is every bit as valuable as his younger sibling and his skipper. Jake is one of the core players in defence having a 94% tackle efficiency and will be wanting to go even further this year.
Manly reached the big dance five times in 25 years until breaking through in 1972 with a 19-14 win over Eastern Suburbs. That opened the floodgates for further premierships in ’73, ’76 and ’78 as the Eagles became a bona fide powerhouse of the competition.
The 1980s were notable for back-to-back grand final defeats to Parramatta and a fifth top-grade flag in ’87 – the last GF ever played at the SCG. The club dominated during the Super League wars of the 1990s, yet three consecutive grand finals produced only a single premiership.
Following the example set by Wests Tigers and the St George Illawarra Dragons in the early years of the NRL, the Sea Eagles merged with the Bears in 1999 to form the Northern Eagles. That partnership lasted only two seasons, with Norths folding and Manly-Warringah returning as a standalone operation in 2003.
