an Unofficial Manly Sea Eagles History Website. Nothing
on this site is intended to reflect the official view of
Manly Warringah Rugby League Football Club. The object of the site is to record the
history of the Sea Eagles, not to provide up to the
minute information on current events. The best sites for
this purpose can be found at Links, especially Manly Sea Eagles and Eagle Rockers.
The Manly club fields teams in the Australian National Rugby League (NRL), the New South Wales Rugby League Premier League as well as junior (age restricted) representative teams. The club also runs Junior Rugby League competitions in the Manly Warringah district.
The Manly Warringah District is in the Northern Suburbs of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It extends from the North Head of Sydney Harbour to the Barrenjoey Headland at the Southern entrance to Broken Bay.
Rugby League is a football code of 13 players a side using an oval ball that may be handled, passed and kicked but not passed forward. Points can be scored by grounding the ball over the opponents goal line, a 'try', (worth 4 points), by kicking a goal after a try, a 'conversion' (2 points), a penalty goal (2 points) or a field goal from general play (1 point). Goals are kicked by place kicking or drop kicking the ball between the goal posts and over the cross bar. For Rugby League's historical origins go to English Beginnings. For rules go to NSWRL.
Rugby League is played in many countries but is particularly strong in the states of New South Wales and Queensland in Australia, in New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the North of England. For an excellent site on the Rugby League World go to: World of Rugby League.
This is a personal website of "Hammer" constructed for fun. While I am a member of the "Manly Eagle Rockers", this is not the Eagle Rockers site, that is at www.manlyeaglerockers.com.
