Manly Warringah Sea Eagles Coach Trent Barrett has named his team to play the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Brookvale Oval on Friday, March 4.

The Sea Eagles side includes fullback Brett Stewart who was rated a 50-50 chance at the beginning of the week of playing against the Bulldogs on Friday night after injuring his hamstring in the Sea-Eagles trial win over the Ipswich Jets.

He had yet to train with the side since the trial and if he was to miss the round one fixture, youngster Tom Trbojevic will likely slot into fullback if Stewart is ruled out.

Apisai Koroisau wins the race for the vacant No.9 jumper with former Bronco Matt Parcell named on the bench as Dylan Walker, Nate Myles, Lewis Brown, Nathan Green and Martin Taupau earn their club debut under new coach Trent Barrett.

Front-rower Darcy Lussick returns to the Sea Eagles in 2016 after three years at the Parramatta Eels and has been included on the bench for the season opener.
