    Another great write up from Manly’s junior correspondent …

    Maybe Pith Rothfield needs to read the article & heading !!! Also a great shout out to the Under 20’s (NYC). They have the best last 5 game performance of any NRL or NYC not losing a game in their last 5 starts ….. great mention in this story ....
    Manly Sea Eagles’ talent runs deeper than NRL first team
    By Ella Kasmar - Manly Daily July 14, 2014

    After a disappointing loss, Manly were tipped to come out firing for their captain’s 250th game against the Tigers at Brookvale.

    By the fourth minute, Manly already had scored their first of many points to come on Friday, and led 6-0.

    Shortly after, they went down that right side again and Peta Hiku scored his second try of the night. Sea Eagles 12-0.

    Clinton Gutherson, a 19-year-old, made a break and Kieran Foran finished it off to score his first try in a few weeks. The Tigers and Sea Eagles went up the tunnel at half time with Manly leading 22-0.

    In the 47th minute, Manly’s debutant Tyson Andrews was welcomed on the field.

    The excitement was reciprocated through the whole team as Clinton Gutherson scored in the corner three minutes later. He has scored three tries in three NRL games.

    Almost every time Brett Stewart scores a try, Manly ends up winning that game. He did so again in the 75th minute. However Manly were confident of winning well and truly at this point.

    We thought that would be all, but the brilliance of Kieran Foran, Brett Stewart and Daly Cherry-Evans produced one last and magical try.
    Foran chipped over the Tigers’ heads, Stewart leapt and caught it, kicked to Cherry-Evans who kicked again and eventually scored under the posts. It gave Manly 40 points.

    The full time siren sounded, Manly 40 Tigers 8.

    A massive congratulations has to go to the Sea Eagles’ Holden Cup team for their amazing record at the moment.

    They haven’t lost in five weeks and are likely to be in the finals.
    They have beaten many top eight teams, including the Tigers on Friday night.

    Captain Jack Delaney injured himself during the game, but the boys carried on and won 40-32.

    Both first grade and the younger boys are truly making their mark on the road to the finals.

    The ongoing talent Manly is producing is ensuring a consistent future.

      Good on the holden cup boys. There will be some tough games ahead but they are digging in and having a go thats all you can ask for. Would be nice to see the club do write ups on their site each week on their 20s as a lot of people are interested. I have noticed the other clubs always do this every week for their boys even if they lose and promote their 20s well.

      Don't hold your breath -Manly still haven't bothered to acknowledge their NSW Cup Players with a Profile Page :dodgy:

      I'm not even sure that the NYC profiles are complete and correct, as the Players who take the field, are often not the ones that are in the Big League. :(

        Why is that when the other clubs do it ? I think it looks great seeing all your players there

        I think it comes down to resourcing. We lack the front office staff that many NRL clubs have.
