Manly-Warringah has been perceived as the "silvertails" of the league since their original entry into the New South Wales Rugby League back in 1947. The silvertails moniker is based on the club's historical wealth and the general economic affluence of the residents of its home territory, the northern beaches of Sydney. The Sea Eagles have had great success during their history, especially during the 1970s when they won four grand finals. Their last grand final success came in 1996 before falling into financial difficulty due to the Super League war. Despite finishing within the criteria established by the NRL for entry into the 2000 competition, Manly-Warringah agreed to form a joint venture with the North Sydney Bears to play as the Northern Eagles. The joint venture arrangement was officially dissolved in August 2001 and in 2003 they re-entered the league as the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles. However, the club had returned to Brookvale Oval full time from mid-2002 onwards and for the latter part of the 2002 season were the Northern Eagles in name only. In season 2005, the Sea Eagles qualified for their first play-off appearance since 1998 by finishing eighth in the premiership. The Super League war was a battle for the control of broadcast rights for the sport of Rugby League. ...

The Northern Eagles were a short-lived Rugby League team, formed during the rationalisation of the National Rugby League by the merger of the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles and the North Sydney Bears, in 2000. ...

Club history

In 2004, northern beaches property developer and club major sponsor Max Delmege completed a deal with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles which saw him purchase a majority stake in the newly formed "Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles Limited". The Sea Eagles corporation now holds the NRL licence for the team and generally operates the running the of the team in the Telstra Premiership. The remaining shares in the Sea Eagles entity are owned by several supporters of the club (including board member Scott Penn) and the Manly-Warringah Rugby League Football Club Limited. The "Football Club" as this entity is now known, has around 2,000 members. Membership in the Football Club was previously heavily resticted and was difficult to gain except for those closely connected to the Club. Since 2004 membership has been open to the public.


The third entity in the Sea Eagles organisation is the Manly Warringah Rugby League Club which operates the "Manly Warringah Leagues Club" based in Brookvale.
