There is a lot about this squad that reminds me of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders…these girls are hot…they have similarly style uniforms and costumes…and they have a certain presence about them that make you want to watch them.

The Manly Seabirds are the longest and the most recognized cheerleading squad in Australia’s NRL and, if you ask me, have that traditional glamorous and sexy NFL cheerleader look.  Well done, Manly Seabirds.

A former NRL cheerleader will start her dream job this week, dancing for a top American basketball team.

Courtney Watts, 27, of Dee Why, will begin work for the Los Angeles Clippers’ Spirit Dance Team.

As reported in the Manly Daily, the former Sea Eagles Sea Bird landed the role after combining a holiday with a tryout for the squad.

She was thrilled to get the job — but then had to secure a visa. She now has one, given on the basis of “extraordinary talent”.  After being unable to join the first month of training, Watts said she faced a big catch-up before the season starts next month.

“I’ve been on the outside —— I wasn’t allowed in just because of the legalities,” she said.

But it is set to be a glam life for the former Mackellar student, who has just got an apartment in West Hollywood, close to Sunset Blvd and the Hollywood Hills.

The squad has a reality TV show on channel E! and she will be involved if another series is commissioned.

“I’ve never thought about myself going on reality TV — when the time comes I’ll have to deal with it,” she said.

“The girls all had fun last year and they’re hoping that there is a season two.”

The only overseas dancer in the squad, Watts said her teammates were still getting used to her lingo. Pictured at Dee Why.
Watts, also a former Cronulla Sharks and Sydney Kings cheerleader, has already been on a trip to Las Vegas, where everything was free.

“I said something about a rig and they were like, ‘What’s a rig?’ and I said, ‘Your body!’ ” she said. “They find it hilarious.”

Watts, whose parents Jan, 56, and John, 61, live in Dee Why, began dancing at aged four at Dance North Academy in Narraweena, where she also recently taught.

She also worked as a personal trainer.

She said she was not earning a Hollywood wage.

“I wouldn’t say it’s well paid,” she said. “We do it for the love and not the money.”

It was the war of the cheerleaders as Manly Sea Eagles’ Chloe, 20, faced off against Sydney Roosters’ Olivia, 19, at Balmoral Beach ahead of Sunday’s Grand Final.

Showing it’s not just the boys who are busy preparing for the game, the girls face a gruelling week of cheer practices and fitness sessions to get their routines game ready.

The first Grand Final for both, the girls agreed the pressure was definitely on for the squads to bring their A game.

Sea Eagles and Roosters cheerleaders, Chloe and Olivia are looking forward to their first NRL Grand Final.

Sea Eagles Cheerleader Chloe is feeling the pressure in the lead-up to the NRL Grand Final.

“The Grand Final routine is definitely more heightened, there’s a lot more pressure,” said Chloe.

Olivia agreed and said the energy of the crowd would keep their spirits up for their “fun and vibrant” routine.

“There’s a lot more nerves for a Grand Final game, but the nerves give you a bit of a rush, more energy.”

And while both cheerleaders are calling the win for their own team, both wished the other well.

“We’re going to bring the trophy home,” Olivia said, “but we’re all pumped up for the game and wish the players the best of luck, we’re their fan club so we’re there to cheer them on.”

Chloe and Olivia are confident their respective teams will get the cash in the NRL Grand Final on Sunday.

Olivia says the Roosters cheerleaders are pumped for the big game.

G’day from our friends in Oz

Every so often, we like to check in with our friends, the Seabirds, dance team for the Manly Sea Eagles. (Manly is near Sydney, Australia). It turns out that they just had a visit with Hugh Jackman. Hugh is a Sydney native, so the Sea Eagles are his home team. He’s a big fan, and goes to home games whenever he can. He’s currently in Sydney filming “The Wolverine” (a standalone film, part of the X-men franchise), and made sure to fit a Manly game into his schedule. He’s the rugby team’s #1 celebrity fan. While at the game, he also made sure to stop by the dressing room to say hello to the ladies. Looks like he’s also the cheerleaders’ number one celebrity fan!

Many Seabirds – Earn Your Wings

Our new best friends Down Under, the Manly Seabirds recently had their bikini photoshoot. The club that they cheer for are the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles and their membership campaign this season is Earn Your Wings. The club bought big beautiful wings for the girls to tie in with the campaign for 2012. The squad decided to use these beautiful wings with their spot bikinis in club colors for their annual photo shoot day.

The Manly Seabirds are busy with rehearsals for our upcoming Easter Extravaganza which will include 80 junior seabirds all dressed in fun polka dot costumes.

The Seabirds are currently sharing a photo each day with fans on their Facebook fan page before they get started with the cheerleaders of the week.
