Steve Rogers trophy up for grabs

Steve Rogers trophy up for grabs

The memory of one of the game’s greatest centres in Steve Rogers will be honoured at Brookvale Oval on Monday, March 21.

The Round 3 Telstra Premiership match between Manly Warringah Sea Eagles and Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks sees both clubs not only competing for the two vital competition points, but also the Steve Rogers Memorial Trophy.

Rogers was an Immortal of the Cronulla Sharks, having played 202 first grade games.

He also represented NSW 21 times and Australia 24 times. Rogers had many good friends at the Sea Eagles in Bob Fulton, Max Krilich and Paul McCabe through the Kangaroos tours.

The Steve Rogers Memorial Trophy was first played in March 2006 and is now contested just once a season at the current holders’ home ground should both clubs be drawn to play each other twice. It used to be played for each time the teams met up until the end of the 2010 season.

The Sea Eagles currently hold the trophy following a 28-16 win in round 17 at Brookvale Oval last season.

Our proud Match Day Partner for the ‘Battle of the Beaches’ night at Brookvale Oval is AbilityOptions.
