    Under 20's Sea Eagles beaten by the Dragons

    The Alsafe Security Sea Eagles have lost to the St George Illawarrra Dragons in a high scoring 46-14 thrashing at WIN Jubilee Oval.

    The Sea Eagles were left scoreless in the first half after the Dragons demolished them 28-0.

    Two tries in fewer than fifteen minutes killed any momentum the Sea Eagles
    were trying to build.

    Manly were making crucial mistakes that cost them from crossing the try line. They seemed to have no momentum when it came to putting points on the scoreboard.

    St George’s kicker Cameron King was down stationary on the ground for almost ten minutes after getting caught up in an awkward tackle. He was carried from the field on a stretcher and didn’t return.

    The Dragons scored again in the form of Chris Astill, and Kyle Stanley took over kicking duties.

    They went into the half time break 28-0. Coach Dave Penna kept the Manly boys on the field throughout the break, and gave them a stern talking to.

    They let another two tries get away, before Josh Portlock ran over the white stripe.

    Mitch Jowett ran in for a try shortly after and they were now on 10 points.

    However the Dragons had punished Manly, and they were winning 40-10. With only ten minutes on the clock, the Sea Eagles had run out of time to turn the game around.

    And Kyle Stanley gave them another cruel blow when he ran down the sideline to make the score 44-10. Stanley was able to convert his own try and boosted their lead to 46-10.

    Chris Stolk then went over, trying to make the scoreboard look credible at 46-14.

    But Manly will now slip further down the ladder after suffering a loss to St George. Next week they play the New Zealand Warriors at Brookvale Oval.

    Not surprising when you consider their top three players, Hoppa Jnr, Whare and Oldfield were out.

    The offical NRL stats count fast play the balls and slow play the balls. Manly NYC Is the slowest play the ball speed team of the competition. This would not surprise anyone who has watch a lot of their games.

    Whilst the team has a handy pack of forwards they are all up the middle players. They do not have 1 edge forward. This is letting them down and stopping the team getting a roll on.
