Updated 2016/17 Waratahs pre-season schedule

There has been plenty of work going on in the background at the Waratahs to get ready for the upcoming 2016/17 season. Coaches Shawn Bradstreet and Phil Marks, along with Chairman of Selectors Chris Hynes and our committee of management have been working feverishly to plan out our approach to the season. The result is our schedule for the 2016/17 pre-season.

Please note that this has been revised as of Wednesday 17th August, with the below information the most up-to-date.

New Players:
New players are always welcome at Manly Warringah, although our selections will always be based on both current requirements and future needs. As such, any players that did not play with Manly last season, are not part of our Pathway Program, and are looking to trial with us will need to contact Chairman of Selectors Chris Hynes on or 0433 855904. Secondary contact is Assistant Coach Phil Marks on or 0411 868855.
