Wests Tigers presented its Woman of the Year award to Nellie Hage at Leichhardt Oval last Friday night.


One of the Wests Tigers most dedicated, passionate, loyal and biggest supporters, Nellie attends all the games and club functions throughout the season, whether the Wests Tigers play at Leichhardt Oval, Dairy Farmers Stadium, Townsville or even Auckland.


Nellie often assists with the Home Stay players, when the household is away, she is committed to encouraging and inspiring them to succeed both on and off the field.


Not a mother but a lover of football, children and the Wests Tigers, Nellie also spends her free time working as the Enfield Federals Club Secretary and accredited FAO. She is rewarded by playing a part in the development of the juniors.


When she is not cheering on the Wests Tigers or helping run the Enfield Federals Junior League Club, Nellie and her good friend Liz can be found baking cookies for their charity, Cookie Love, which they have set up to assist with feeding the homeless and needy.


This year Cookie Love in conjunction with the Wests Tigers is selling cookies at various events to raise money to donate to one of the Wests Tigers charity partners, the Exodus Foundation.


Nellies passion for all aspects of the game is why she is the worthy recipient of the 2013 Wests Tigers Woman of the Year Award.


She received her award and a big bunch of flowers from Wests Tigers CEO Stephen Humphreys, Wests Tigers' Women In League Ambassador Julie Payten, and Wests Tigers NYC Coach Todd Payten.
