Rivals embrace Sunday’s test

Melbourne and Manly are two top eight sides ready to add another chapter to their rivalry this Sunday.

The Sea Eagles have won at AAMI Park just once from their five attempts.

However they come to Melbourne this weekend desperate to keep in touch with the top four.

Rivalry continues! Melbourne v Manly, July 30. Book now!

Storm on the other hand sit a game clear in top spot and will this week be hosting their ‘Retro’ game.

AAMI Park will be transformed back to the good old days with 90s music and the side to wear their 2007 heritage jerseys, commemorating 10 years since their Grand Final win.

The footy on the field will be modern though and the stakes are certainly high.

“Manly are in a position where they are fighting for the top four,” Cooper Cronk said.

“Everything they have done this season has come off their elite players, Blake Green, Martin Taupau, Cherry-Evans and the Trbojevic brothers.”

“We have our 10-year reunion since the 2007 Grand Final, that was against Manly, we’ve got Retro Round this Sunday afternoon, also against Manly. Two teams that are in the top half of the ladder so it is a good occasion for our fans to get out and watch the game and a good chance for both teams to see where they are at.”
