March 24, 2019 6:13 am
The Sydney Roosters put on a master class performance as they beat Manly Sea Eagles 26-18 in their NRL match last night.
Manly had no answers with a 37 percent possession rate in the first 40 minutes, while they were out-muscled in the middle against a slick Roosters outfit, who at one stage were reduced to just one man on the bench.
Back-to-back tries in the 58th and 59th minute sparked a Sea Eagles revival with the margin reduced to 14 as the crowd of 9664 found their voice with a quarter of the game remaining.
In other matches, Sharks beat Titans 20-6, Panthers defeated Knights 16-14.
In the earlier match, the Broncos defeated the Cowboys 29-10.
