Introducing the Manly Mermaids

By Katja Imholz Manly’s newest sporting team, the Manly Mermaids, is aiming to ride the wave of the fast growing sport of rugby sevens. Since February the Manly Rugby Women’s Sevens Team has been training under Coach Jo Trower with the support of Manly Marlins Sevens coach and Second Grade coach Marshall Milroy. The Manly Mermaids are an exciting group of players with fantastic sporting background and many ties to the Manly Rugby club. Familiar names like Emma Crerar (daughter of Wallaby Rod Crerar), Melaea Ofahengaue (niece of Wallaby ‘Willie O’ Viliami Ofahengaue and daughter of Marlin Sione Ofahengaue) and Aliyah Helu (daughter of Marlin Alex Helu) continue the Manly rugby family traditions. Viviena Hingano will look to replicate the success of her brother Malietoa who is currently playing in France after a great season for the Marlins last year and Mikaela Hedge is excited to now be able to put on the boots as well after watching her brother Rohan play for the Marlins.
