Ea­gles’ E added value

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

NEWS that Tom and Jake Tr­bo­je­vic have signed longterm agree­ments at Manly has s kick­started ru­mours the Sea Ea­gles will soon be up for sale. .

The club is a far more v valu­able as­set with the broth­ers rs locked in un­til 2026. Adding to o the spec­u­la­tion, new in­de­pen­dent com­mis­sion chair­man Peter V’landys has vowed to start a sub­ur­ban ground fund­ing cam­paign — and Brook­vale Oval is at the top of his list.

This would be hugely ap­peal­ing to po­ten­tial b buy­ers be­cause the oval is a dump no longer suit­able to stage NRL games.

The Penn fam­ily is los­ing about $2 mil­lion on the fran­chise and would be pre­pared to sell if the right buyer came along.

There is talk a con­sor­tium of in­ter­na­tional busi­ness­men and one of Australia’s wealth­i­est jewellers is poised to make an of­fer.
