Dragons into top eight with Manly win

17 July 2005

St George Illawarra have moved into the top eight with a clinical 36-10 victory over a lacklustre Manly in their NRL match at Brookvale Oval.

The Dragons built their six-tries-to-two win on dazzling attack in the first half and rock-solid defence to catapult into sixth place on a congested NRL ladder.

Manly has dropped from fifth to eighth spot and has now lost five of its past six games to teams ranked below them on the table.

The Sea Eagles have been defeated in their past two matches at their Brookvale Oval fortress, where they hold a 7-2 record.

Halfback Michael Monaghan had an ordinary game for Manly - bad timing considering the club is expected to announce it has signed Melbourne No.7 Matt Orford.

The Dragons blitzed their opposition in the opening half - through tries to Ben Creagh in the eighth minute, Clint Greenshields (15th minute), Wes Naiqama (18th minute) and Colin Best (28th minute) - as they raced to a 24-0 lead.

Manly did not open its account until 20 seconds before the break when fullback Brett Stewart ran onto a Monaghan grubber that rolled between the legs of Dragons utility Michael Ennis.

Winger Chris Hicks scored off another Monaghan short kick in the 63rd minute to leave the home side trailing 24-10.

But any hope of a Manly comeback was crushed five minutes later when NSW prop Luke Bailey crashed over from close range, Naiqama converting for a 30-10 lead to the visitors.

The Dragons rubbed salt into the wound through a late try to back-rower Lance Thompson following a break from Naiqama, who had a personal haul of 16 points from his try and six goals.
