    NOT content with one Tony Williams at the club, the Sea Eagles have now unleashed “T Rex Mark Two” on unsuspecting rivals.

    While Williams has been making a big impact for Manly in the NRL, powerful backrower Fabian Goodall is now doing the same job with the club’s SG Ball side.

    And the similarities between the pair were evident at Brookvale Oval on Saturday as Goodall starred for the young Sea Eagles side that defeated the Roosters 30-16.

    The blockbusting forward proved a real handful for the opposition and capped his impressive display by leaving the defence in his wake by sprinting 60m to score a late try.

    Goodall has been with the club for three years and is signed until the end of 2013.

    The victory maintained the Sea Eagles’ undefeated record after the first three rounds and with that kind of talent coming through the club’s future looks bright.

    After racing to a 20-4 lead at halftime, they had had to withstand a fightback by the Roosters who trailed 20-16 at one stage.

    “While it was ugly in the second half it was good to see the effort, in the middle of the paddock in particular,” coach Mark Mahoney said.

    He was especially happy with the performances of big props Jake Trbojevic and Chris Alavanos and hooker Fabian Natoli. At one stage in the second half Natoli made an amazing 11 tackles in nine minutes.

    Skipper and fullback Clinton Gutherson, showed why he has recently been signed by the Sea Eagles until the end of 2014. “He is pretty special, he came up with two saves in the first half when we really needed them,” Mahoney said.
