Manly Rugby Union Football Club was formed in 1906. Manly, affectionately known as the Marlins, play their home games at Manly Oval and train at Keirle Park.
Manly was a great force in the 1920s and 1930 and in 1950 Manly won both the first grade and reserve grade titles in the same season. However, following this there were no titles for over 30 years, until 1983, under coach Alan Jones, however the club could not produce consistent results and didn’t win another first grade premiership until 1997.
In 2006 Manly celebrated 100 years of rugby.
