Auckland police authorities will be on high alert tonight and chemists will be stocking up on morning after pills with those sex machines the Manly Sea Eagles out celebrating their second win of the season. In what was ultimately a non-event of a game the Sea Eagles left the stadium with a 14-6 scoreline. Manly started the scoring with a unconverted try to Michael Robertson followed by a penalty to Jamie Lyon before the half. The Warriors responded after half time with a try to Jerome Ropati and the conversion from James Maloney. Another penalty to Manly saw them edge ahead and the killer blow was delt, controversially, from Video Ref Phil Cooley, giving benefit of the doubt to Steve Matai. My feelings are that Mr Cooley is a happy man tonight because he obviously had money riding on the game. Benefit of the doubt? My god man, are you blind!!!!
Anyway, the try took the score out to 14-6 and sealed the victory for the visitors. The spark that the Warriors showed last week against Brisbane was nowhere to be seen in what must have been a disappointing 80 mins for the 19,000 fans that turned up to watch the game. Standout performances….. er um Steve Matai was consistent throughout the whole match and always looked threatening. Michael Luck again put his body on the line and Wade Mckinnon gets a mention for showing some of that mongrel that everyone has missed.
