Manly took full advantage as wingers Matthew Wright and Akuila Uate crossed within four minutes of each other then took a bow as quick passes from Cherry-Evans and Green engineered an opportunity from Tom Trbojevic to send his brother over the line.

While the Sea Eagles No.7 was impressive, it was a rocks and diamonds afternoon for his opposite number Luke Brooks. It was the Tigers halfback who steered them to a half-time lead, which they extended when he collected a try of his own soon afterwards. A dropped ball inside his own 10 metres midway through the second half, however, would prove a turning point.

Wests Tigers . The Manly Sea Eagles (also known as the Manly -Warringah Sea Eagles ) is an NRL team located near the Northern Beaches of Sydney. 1968 saw the Manly Sea Eagles come into their own and strongly compete with the league ’s leading teams for the first time in the club’s history.

The Tigers had looked in danger of fulfilling pre-match forecasts and travelling back over the Spit Bridge with their tails between their legs as Cherry-Evans and Tom Trbojevic laid on a try each in the first 11 minutes.

The heaving crowd on a picture perfect winter afternoon could smell a Manly romp but the visitors had other ideas, capitalising on a glut of possession as they responded via Edwards in the 25th minute, then five minutes later with a second four-pointer to centre Esan Marsters.

NSW front-rower Aaron Woods, determined to put the bitter disappointment of last Wednesday's capitulation at Suncorp Stadium firmly behind him, played a key role as the Tigers hit the front. He had been restricted from his dangerous offloading in the early stages as Blues teammate Jake Trbojevic set about limiting his influence. But when he did get one away on the half-hour it paid dividends, setting five-eighth Tuimoala Lolohea free in a push for the line completed when Brooks' end-on-end grubber skipped over the head of Manly's Brian Kelly and was pounced on by Marsters.

Brooks was in the thick of the action again soon after the break when he scored another lucky bounce, this time off the upright, and leaped on the ball himself to put the Tigers further ahead.

The halfback's dropped ball inside his own 10 metres, however, was costly eight minutes later as Manly surged back and the northern beaches faithful re-discovered their voice. Kelly appeared to have dislodged the ball but referee Gerard Sutton called it a knock-on.
