Match Report: Qualifying Final Eels 46 def Sea Eagles 22 The season is now over for the Manly Sea Eagles after falling to the minor premiers, Parramatta 46-22. Parramatta were far too strong from the outset playing some fast up tempo football that the Sea Eagles simply could not handle. Poor ball control and poor end of set options by Manly saw the Eels dominate field position and they were able to build pressure. As a result, Parramatta were able to race in 5 unanswered tries to go into the half time break with a commanding 28-0 lead. To ManlyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s credit they hung in there and were able to post some points on the board in the second half with Anthony Watmough scoring off a neat flick pass from Ben Kennedy. A great bust by Anthony Watmough led to Michael Witt crossing for a 4 pointer. Ben Kennedy then completed the scoring for Manly with 2 tries that came from chip kicks. Manly finished on a positive note outscoring the Eels 22-18 in the second half. After the loss the Sea Eagles bid farewell to the following players; Sam Harris (Wests Tigers), Chad Randall (London Broncos), Scott Donald (Leeds Rhinos) & Terry Hill who after 246 first grade games has announced his retirement. Coach Des Hasler said after the game, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“We didn't execute well, we turned over too much ball and when we got to the other end we didn't maintain any sort of pressure. I was pretty proud of the way the boys stuck to it. They were just too good for us on the dayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬?. Premier League A disappointing performance from the Manly Sea Eagles Premier League side saw them go down to the St George Illawarra Dragons 52-12 in the semi final at Brookvale Oval. The match was well and truly in the balance at half time with the score 10-6 in favour of the Dragons. However in the second half, Manly put in what coach Geoff Toovey said, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“Was the worst half of football that Manly had played this seasonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬?. The Dragons were too strong for the Sea Eagles as they ran in 42 points in the second half. Best for the Sea Eagles was half back Travis Burns, winger Mitch Creary and interchange forward Mailangi Styles. The Sea Eagles have another chance to rectify the loss when they take on the Canberra Raiders in the elimination semi final at Aussie Stadium on Sunday kicking off at 1.50pm. The Sea Eagles will go into the match confident after beating the Raiders in the final round at Canberra.
