Soaring Sea Eagles is an Unofficial Manly Warringah 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, Rugby League Project and NRL.
The Manly club fields teams in the
Australian National Rugby League (NRL),
the Holden Cup (the National Youth League), the NSWRL Intrust Super
Premiership as well as junior (age restricted) representative teams (SG
Ball under18s; Harold Matthews Cup under 16s). The club also runs
Junior Rugby League competitions in the Manly Warringah district. Cup
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 playnrl.com.
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: Rugby League Planet.
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.
