How long has it been since Manly played a first grade premiership match at Campbelltown Sports Stadium?


By the time Monday rolls around for the clash between Wests Tigers and Manly, it will be 5511 days or 15 years, 1 month and 2 days, since the Sea Eagles played a first grade game at Campbelltown.


Or for those who like more facts and figures, the 5511 days can be converted into:

- 476, 150, 400 seconds

- 7,935, 840 minutes

- 132, 264 hours

- 787 weeks (rounded down)


The last time was on Saturday, June 27, 1998, where a crowd of 7712 fans saw Manly beat Western Suburbs Magpies 45-30. The referee was Tim Mander.


The Magpies were captained by Steve Georgallis, the current Wests Tigers NRL Assistant Coach, with Tommy Raudonikis the Wests coach.


Manly were led by captain Geoff Toovey, the current Sea Eagles Coach. The Sea Eagles were coached by Bob Fulton.


Since the formation of the Wests Tigers in 2000, the two clubs have clashed at Leichhardt Oval, Telstra Stadium (now ANZ Stadium), Bluetongue Stadium, Gosford, and Allianz Stadium, but have never met in an NRL match at Campbelltown.


Wests Tigers also never played Northern Eagles in a premiership match at Campbelltown.


Here is a look back at the June 27, 1998, match.
