2018 Nest Baby race

Member Appreciation Round will give recognition to the Sea Eagles’ youngest Members on Saturday afternoon when we take on the Panthers.

A halftime spectacular like no other will showcase five mighty contestants take the field in an effort to find MWSE’s quickest baby!

Babies crawl from one parent to another, in an exhausting course of several metres. Use of any less than 4 limbs will mean automatic disqualification.  

Among the competitors are:

VIC: Aria-Maree “Baby Turbo” Thomas

In lane number one, weighing in at 10 kilos, we have Aria-Maree “baby Turbo” Thomas. Representing Victoria, Aria-Maree will be donning her Sea Eagles racing suit. Her trainers will need to be sure to be at the finishing line as “once she’s off there’s no stopping her!”

NSW: Jackson “Jacksonman” Barrett

Jackson Barrett, better known as “Jacksonman”, comes into the race in lane number two. A Northern Beaches local, Jackson spends most of his time avoiding carrots and listening to nursery rhymes. Jackson will want a quick race to ensure he can get back to his nap.

NSW: Menzie Currey

Lane number three features Menzie Currey. Menzie was named after one of the Sea Eagles greatest natural athletes – Steven ‘the Beaver’ Menzies. According to his trainers, Menzie has been training specifically on his crawling speed the past month.

NSW: Laiken Wishart

Seasoned competitor in lane number four, Laiken Wishart, has spent the last 11 months bulking for this moment, with lamb cutlets his favourite gains. While his dad begs him to be a Dragon’s supporter, this little chunk has made his choice and is an eagle through and through!

SA: Sophia “Stripes” Fletcher

Fresh off a controversial baby formula saga, Sophia “Stripes” Fletcher in lane number five, is ready to prove herself. On a fresh diet of peas and spoon aeroplanes Sophia will be wanting to come out of the blocks in a hurry.

NSW: Charlie Meyer

Coming in at lane number six is the young stud Charlie Meyer. Travelling all the way from Parklea, Charlie has put down the toys for the afternoon and is treating this afternoon as strictly business. Charlie has been training avidly for his maiden event and will be keen to do everything possible to take home the chocolates (we hope that his trainers advised that they weren't literal chocolates).

Ahead of the race it is important to note that the use of baby oil being used as a gliding advantage has been banned which has many contestants spitting the dummy. 

The babies will be racing for the coveted prize of a Manly Sea Eagles 2018 Toddler Home Jersey Set; as well as other prizes, courtesy of Freshwater Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.

Bring the whole family to Lottoland on Saturday afternoon as this event is not to be missed. 

Bring the family for as little as $50.
