- Surprise appearance at Manly training
- She showed impressive footy skills
The world’s sexiest woman, Paige Spiranac, has made a surprising career move after giving up professional golf to focus on modeling and social media: rugby league.
The glamorous 29-year-old American was a surprise guest at Manly Sea Eagles’ training session on Wednesday, after showing off three of the club’s stars on court.
With 3.7 million Instagram followers since she left her professional career, Spiranac is now an ambassador for multiple companies with her own ‘OnlyPaige’ website, for subscribers only.

Before donning a Manly jersey to play footy at Brookvale Oval, Spiranac teamed up with hulking prop Toafofoa Sipley to take on Reuben Garrick and Jake Trbojevic in a nine-hole match at Mona Vale’s picturesque Bayview Golf Club , on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Despite sinking an eight-foot putt described by Garrick as ‘clutch’, and hitting some nicely timed drives, Spiranac and Sipley went down by one stroke – but it only made the American more excited.
They then returned to the club’s home ground, Brookvale Oval, where Spiranac showed she was far from a one-trick pony.

Spiranac said if she’s ever given something to tackle “just know I’m going all in” – and grabbed the bag so hard she nearly fell in her face
The athletic former golf pro, who was featured in the Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated and named “Sexiest Woman Alive” on Maxim’s Hot 100 list last year, started out with confidence.
She made the tackle bag fly with all the grace and determination of a footy player, noting, “If you give me something to tackle, know I’m going all in, lol,” in a photo of her hitting it so hard tackled that she was about to faceplant on the ‘Brookie’ turf.
To prove it was no fluke, Spiranac then fired in a goal kick from straight in front, bouncing up and down in delight as he sailed over the crossbar.
She was there for the betting company PointsBet alongside Aussie ambassador Dale Thomas, the ex-Magpies cult figure, who was also a caddie and scorekeeper.
