Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have officially re-signed prop Toafofoa Sipley to the end of the 2025 season.
Off contract at the end of 2023, Sipley has played 53 games for the Sea Eagles since joining the club in 2018.
Respected by all, Sipley was a popular winner of Manly's Clubman of the Year award in 2021.
A man who works tirelessly on improving his craft, Sipley's naturally infectious personality brings that feeling of belonging and togetherness to the squad.
Sea Eagles CEO Tony Mestrov congratulated Sipley on his re-signing.
"Toff is a hard working prop who just constantly strives to get better each and every day,'' Mestrov said.
"I know how proud everyone was for Toff when he played his 50th game for the Sea Eagles last season. It was a real testament to his work ethic and professionalism as he has had to overcome some tough knee injuries in recent years.
"You can see at training every day just how much positivity and energy he brings. Toff is always smiling and encouraging people at the club, be it team-mates or staff.
"We know Toff's game will only getter better and he will again be a key man in our strong forward pack."
The re-signing comes on top of Sipley being named Sea Eagles captain for Friday night's opening trial match against South Sydney at Gosford.
It's been an enjoyable few months for Sipley after getting engaged to long time partner, Nancy, in Fiji during his holiday break.
