On 27 September 1987 Manly played Canberra in the historic last grand final to be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground before a crowd of 50,201.

After dominating the season, at one stage winning 12 successive matches, the Bob Fulton coached Sea Eagles were worthy premiers, ending the Raiders "fairytale run" through the final series by winning the Grand Final 18-8.
