    It's not a huge deal in the scheme of things, but the Dragons V Tigers game at ANZ has public transport included in the ticket, but out game at the SFS doesn't...

    Not sure why?

    Our game will be lucky to get a crowd of 20K, the other gane will be 40K. I am sure they will spruik other reasons though, but not enough bums on seat means that they will not spend the money on providing transport, maybe they could have played the game at Brookvale?, nah that just makes too much commonsense

    We ALL know this game should have been at Brookvale....they just needed to wait until the teams were decided and then said "ok it's Brookvale"...tough for the staff at the Sea Eagles to have a "maybe here or maybe not" but still doable!!

    And MUCH better atmosphere

      Why isnt it at Brookvale?

      Is this a recent development?

      Why werent we told? Surely we could have whinged and moaned about it for the last month.....

      Oh hang on.

      Its just a conspiracy against us, stay off the grassy knolls in bay 51.

      AFAIK the public transport is paid for partly/mostly by ANZ stadium, and this is why you get free transport out there.

      It's the same for 90% of games out there, your transport is included in your ticket costs

      Haven't you guys heard. Every Manly supporter lives in milion dollar mansions and gets chauffered to the matches. We dont need public transport apparently. Just ONE MORE reason to stick it up Gallop and the NRL as if we need any more.

      Ask your mum for a lift :)

      Personally I would jump on a bus or Ferry and then get a cab from there, it's only about $15 from Circular Key to SFS by cab.

      Im fairly sure that with ANZ once the crowd gets over a certain figure (it may be 40K but not 100% sure) then public transport is included.

      The only exception to this is the swans who organised free transport as part of the deal of playing some games out there. So this has nothing to do with the NRL or Manly.

      WTF...hmmm

      Anyway yeah Circular Quay, or as my boss in the US calls it Circular KWAY

      In case people missed it, this isn't a conspiracy against Manly, it is just that ANZ tickets 90% of the time include public transport costs

      L90 to Lee St near Central, walk through then tunnel to the back of Central and there are shuttle buses to the SFS.

      Return services are operating from the Moore Park Bus Station to Central Station (Route1) and Circular Quay (Route3) for approximately 1 hour after the completion of the game.

      Yet another example of the disgraceful conspiracy against all things Manly. Quick, get Zorba to ride in on his trusty steed and antagonize all the powers that be to continue the injustice.

      The 373 Bus from the city goes straight past the Stadium.
