Congratulations to our stand-out players from game one versus the Wests Tigers, with Player of the Match points below.
Congratulations to all involved on another successful National Touch League campaign with NSW Scorpions Women’s successfully winning back to back Elite 8 tiles. The Women’s Elite 8 went into a drop off, and despite a slow start and a 0-3 half-time deficit, the NSW Scorpions won 4-3 against the Broncos to claim back to back titles. Additionally it's three Elite 8 championship titles in five years and as such the team has dominated the Women’s Elite 8 division since it's inception in 2011. For the second successive year all 16 players from the winning NSW Scorpions team were from the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles affiliate. Player of the Final for the second year in a row was Laura Peattie.
Women’s Elite 8: Billie Taylor, Brittney Clifford, Chloe Cheney, Danielle Davis, Elesha Dougal, Faith Nathan, Hannah Dyball, Laura Peattie, Lucy McDonald, Madison Higgins-Ashby, Rachelle Davis, Samantha Rodgers, Stephanie Maiolo, Tayla Clifford, Yasmin Meakes, Zara Nicholas.

Manly Women's Premier League have capped off a tremendous season taking out the 2017 Vawdon & State Cup titles making it six titles in a row. Along with this they won the NTL Elite 8 title undefeated representing the NSW Scorpions with all players from the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles club. It was a great season for our junior teams winning the Vawdon Cup Youth League Division 1 title and State Cup Women's 20's.
At the 2017 State Cup the team produced a clinical performance in the Women’s Open A final, wrapping up a third successive Vawdon Cup and State Cup double. The match was played with plenty of grit as expected with both teams going set for set early on. Eventually the Roosters defensive wall cracked and the Sea Eagles swooped to open the scoring before putting the game out of reach for the Roosters with 4-1 the final score. COngratulations to Player of the Final Chloe Cheney.
