Congratulations to the Manly Sea Eagles, 2011 NRL Premiers
A big shout out to one of Sports Geek’s clients, Manly Sea Eagles, who took out this season’s NRL premiership in impressive fashion over the New Zealand Warriors! Special congrats to Jessica Ivers (@jivebong) who helped drive the Sea Eagles digital platforms in 2011, she was a vital cog for the Sea Eagles digital community and will be missed by Sea Eagles fans. We wish her all the best on her new challenge.
Commiserations, too, must go to the Collingwood, who went down to a great Geelong outfit in the 2011 AFL Grand Final. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your perspective) there was no #callananshimmy this year.
One more quick note on the NRL and AFL finals; We came very close seeing an All-Sports Geek Grand Final in both codes this year,with clients Collingwood, the West Coast Eagles, Melbourne Storm and Manly Sea Eagles duking it out during the Preliminary finals for a spot on the Grand Final stage.
A brilliant effort from all clubs, and we wish them well for Season 2012.
