Inspirational young Manly Warringah Sea Eagles forward Sean Keppie has been selected as the Club's nominee for the prestigious NRL Ken Stephen Medal.
Established in 2007, the NRL Community Awards have become the most significant opportunity for our game’s unsung heroes to receive the recognition and thanks they deserve for the tireless work they do in the community.
The NRL Community Awards also provide an opportunity for us to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution the NRL Clubs, State Leagues and NRL and NRLW players make year on year.
In between his playing and training commitments, Sean attends weekly music, art and sport classes at his charities WhatAbility, Heroes with Ability and Sunnyfield Disability Services.
He also arranged regular visits to Sea Eagles training sessions and games for his charities.

When COVID pandemic restrictions impacted his visits to his charities, Sean continued to make a positive difference by organising regular online visits in his own time.
More than a club commitment, Sean has a true passion for the disability sector. After his retirement from rugby league, Sean intends to seek employment in the disability sector to continue to make a significant, genuine difference.
