Sea Eagles want out of Brookvale

The Manly Sea Eagles are seriously considering walking away from their spiritual home at Brookvale Oval.

The Manly Daily can reveal chief executive Graham Lowe has already held talks with Manly Mayor Jean Hay about the possibility of shifting to Manly Oval, with lower-grade games to be played at Rat Park.

While Manly Oval lacks the seating for a first-grade NRL club, Mr Lowe has raised the possibility of adding new grandstands to the ground as part of a facelift already being planned by council.

Mr Lowe said yesterday he was "sick and tired of the constant roadblocks" being put up by Warringah councillors as Brookvale went to rack and ruin, but pointed out council staff were not to blame.

"Other councils see it as an honour to have their own NRL team but that hasn't been the case at Brookvale for some time," he said in a statement.

"We are sick and tired of battling against the Friends of Brookvale and feel an alternative should be looked at."

Mr Lowe has asked the NRL to inspect Manly Oval to see if the venue is appropriate.

The Sea Eagles are serious about the move and yesterday dispatched operations manager Alicia Keogh to meet with Pittwater Council about the possibility of playing NSW Cup games at Rat Park.
