The Manly Sea Eagles have recorded a much needed 30-20 win over the Wests Tigers at Brookvale Oval.
Manly’s return to Broovale Oval was a happy one as they ran out 10-point victors.
Brett Stewart got the first try for the Sea Eagles.
But they didn’t have the lead for long as Mitchell Moses hit back for the visitors.
Wests took a 10-6 lead when Pat Ritchards scored.
A fantastic leap from Steve Matai put Manly back in front.
The Sea Eagles scored just before half-time through Kieran Foran.
In the second half Daly Cherry-Evans broke through but his try was disallowed as he lost his grip on the ball.
The halfback would not be denied though and set up this try for Stewart, his second.
The Tigers wouldn’t lie down though and scored in the right corner.
But Ligi Sao gave Manly some breathing space when he crossed.
The Tigers kept coming and Moses got his double.
They crossed again but the video referee controversially ruled a double movement.
That was all she wrote for the Tigers and Manly were home for a rare win in 2015
