    The trials will be:

    Friday, February 8 v Cronulla Sharks at Brookvale Oval 7pm.

    This trial will be played in 20 minute quarters.

    Manly will only use regular stars for 20 to 30 minutes in this trial.

    All fit and available newcomers will be on show.

    Saturday, February 16 v Sydney Roosters, Bluetongue Stadium, Gosford 7.30pm.

    This will be played in 40 minute halves under premiership conditions.

    The game will be a final selection trial for the Broncos match.

    Toovey will have two weeks to work with his chosen 17 for the kick-off to the season.

    "I'm happy with how it has worked out - we have had a very settled, well planned summer program and will be ready for a good first up showing against a side we have performed well against in recent seasons," Toovey said.

    Manly's trials are against teams expected to challenge for the 2013 NRL premiership.

    The Sharks have recruited well in the off-season while the Roosters have a new coach and a new- look side, which ultimately will be boosted by the injection of superstar Sonny Bill Williams back from rugby union.

    Always wondered why the club doesn't do the special trial like Souths and Canterbury are doing ie.

    Souths vs PNG Kumuls
    Canterbury vs Newtown

        I know this has been covered a bit before, but I'm not sure why we are playing our trials at Brookie and Gosford. We should have taken these games to the bush and given something to the Manly fans out that way, heck it might have even helped sell a few more memberships. I doubt anyone has bought a membership because they got a ticket to a trial game at Brookie or Gosford? If they took the game to the Riverina where there are some quality fields, spend a few days in the towns, as well as creating plenty of goodwill for the club and the game itself, they could have sold additional memberships.

        That wouldn't be a bad idea.
        Reggies and U20s get a run against a fair NSW Cup side.
        Club introduces new signings to the fans could have the local area clubs sign on day at the game.

        I'm about 10 hours drive from Brookie....so if anyone who gets to a trial would like to do a short write up (especially on some of the new guys) it would be very much appreciated.

        I think it's better to play an nrl side and sort out with the other coach which quarters are the 1st graders and which are the fringe guys. Playing the kumuls or jets invites injury, as blokes on those teams will go crazy trying to get noticed.

        We play with U20s and Reserve graders - Souths and The Dogs will be doing this for there games (Souths do it every year).

        Oh and Penrith are playing a Group 10 rep side.

        Given how the Central Coast teams really pushed Manly in the Jason Annear 7's - play a Central Coast Rep side (last few years lost to both Illawarra and Newcastle in the finals of Reps) at Bluetongue.
        Another could be wait until after the World Cup and line up one of the Islander teams (play a resident side)

          Probably. They'd probably just get someone to drive it though.

          They tried having a driver drive it up the F3 last year and look what happened. Best run it up there instead.
