Guess that it mainly down to technique and discipline for Keppie and to get that right on a regular basis . Of course has shown what he is capable of occasionally , including against some of the ' Name ' packs but again far and few between last season for whatever reason . Club is certainly showing some faith in him , hope that he can reciprocate with some consistent and regular strong on field performances .

Love the Keppie. At least he has balls
AS long as he does not keep dropping them ...

On a Serious note
Some props take time to mature and Keppie is still relatively young and I do not believe we have seen his full potential .
We have seen glimpses where he has been great and we hope The New coaching staff can get the best out of hm so he can become the consistent great force in our pack

Has a touch of the JRHardgraves in him, up in your face type of forward. Manly seem to be putting a lot of faith into him and the same can be said for Passeka as well.

Time for both of them to finally grow into Great Manly Men

Apparently so, I saw him at the Mall yesterday with a young kid in a pram.
Or was it Mitchell Duke? It’s hard to tell!

He’s a lot taller than I thought. I see that he’s listed at 1.96m.
Im assuming you have never seen Keppie and Duke in the same room together?

Just needs to cut out the lazy efforts in his game. His inside cover defence can let him down at times for me is very frustrating.
I love his technique but needs to work harder in effort areas. If he gets this right I’m on the bandwagon

Young Sea Eagles fighting to lead new-look pack​

The competition for spots in the front row is heating up in the post-Taupau era.​


The departure of Martin Taupau has created a healthy competition for spots on the northern beaches, with Manly's young and ambitious pack battling it out for the chance to become the club's new enforcer.

Sean Keppie, Toafofoa Sipley and Taniela Paseka are all preparing to take the step up, but ultimately, only one can prevail in coach Anthony Seibold's new-look forward pack.

“We have a lot of forwards in our stockpile, but it's a race to see who is going to step up,” Keppie told the Daily Telegraph.

“It's good competition, but I'm willing to take that step.


“I'm training really hard. Come Round 1, we'll see what happens. If I get that chance, I'll take it with both hands.”

Keppie, in particular, has been earmarked as a future leader of the pack in the same vein as previous club icons like Mark Carroll and Ian Roberts. Though he's signed until the end of 2026, he's determined not to let long-term job security curtail his ambition.

“The club has a vision for me. They've told me what they want from me. They said they see value in me and have a lot of faith in me,” Keppie continued.

Manly's head of recruitment Scott Fulton confirmed the club's hopes for the 24-year-old.

“(Keppie) is doing everything right. He's very well perceived off the field with the charity work he does. Moving forward on the field, that's without a doubt the vision for him – that enforcer,” Fulton told the Telegraph.

“He's big and tough, athletic, has good offloads. It's about creating a pack you don't want to play against.

“When I was playing, teams didn't want to take on a pack with guys like Mark Carroll, Ian Roberts and Solomon Haumono.

“They were so fearsome, you didn't want to run into them.

“Sean would have fit well in those teams.”

Camden-born Keppie has played 59 games for the Sea Eagles since making his debut in 2019.

Time for Keppie to stand up to all his critics

and step up to his Great potential and become the formidable force in our pack

2023 is the Time

Yeah the bloke has mongrel. They need to fix his goaline defence, but he seems to have more consistency than paseka and Boyle

I really like Keppie - think he's a quality human and clubman - but also think it's expecting too much for him to suddenly become a "star" forward. He's got a long way to go: he needs to work on his hands, lateral movement, and goal-line defence. He also needs to stop knocking himself out - his tendency to lead with his head in both attack and defence really worries me.

Honestly, at this stage I'd settle for him becoming a solid, regular NRL starting forward. Once he does that, we can start expecting bigger things.

I hated him last season for his poor defensive efforts, dropped balls and penalties. In the trials he went ok. we'll see.

Dropped to NSW cup.
Where he will no doubt be unleashed…

They're looking for scapegoats at Souths right now (almost as much as we do here), so I'm not surprised he's been dropped. Shame, really. They are light on for forwards and I was hoping he'd establish himself there.
