Manly fadeout woes remain as Dolphins continue winning ways

An early, double-figure lead was not enough to propel the Sea Eagles over the Dolphins with Wayne Bennett’s men coming out on top 30-24 at Suncorp on Thursday night.

Manly leapt out a 16-4 lead less than a half-hour in courtesy of tries to Tommy Talau, Corey Waddell, and Toluta’u Koula before three Dolphins tries in the space of five minutes saw them surge ahead heading into the break.

A Tom Trbojevic try on the other side of the break curtailed the Dolphins’ momentum slightly before Jack Bostock put them ahead scoring what proved to be the match-winner.

Trbojevic left the field in the aftermath of the Bostock try with a hamstring issue that looks set to keep out of the entire State of Origin series.

Trai Fuller scored a brilliant try and ran for 155 metres with four tackle breaks whilst Mark Nicholls also managed a four-pointer to go along with 116 metres and 26 tackles without a miss.

Tom Trbojevic scored a try, assisted on another, and ran for 125 metres whilst Luke Brooks assisted on a try and ran for 137 metres with five tackle breaks.

The try-scoring dried up for a period in the second half before Matt Burton got the Bulldogs on the board and Jacob Kiraz crossed to set up a grandstand finish only for Cameron Ciraldo’s men to fall short in their comeback attempt.

Dylan Edwards ran for 254 metres with 10 tackle breaks and zero errors whilst To’o scored a try and ran for 198 metres with 11 tackle breaks.

Rookie fullback David Armstrong extended their lead after the break before Papali’i’s second dragged the hosts back into only for Bradman Best to snatch what proved to be the match-winner 63 minutes in.

Best scored a try, assisted on another, and ran for a team-high 235 metres with 11 tackle breaks in a near-perfect Origin audition whilst Armstrong scored a try, assisted on another, and ran for 173 metres.

Izaac Tu’itupou Thompson crossed early in the second before back-to-back Dragons tries all but sealed their first win at Kogarah this season.

Jack de Belin scored a try, ran for a game-high 200 metres, and made 22 tackles without a miss whilst Jaydn Su’A scored a try, ran for 106 metres with four tackle breaks and made 34 tackles.

Dom Young and Angus Crichton both crossed for doubles in the opening 12 minutes to make it 22-0 before you could blink.

The shellshocked Warriors were able to slow the flow of points as the game went on but the initial blow proved enough for the Roosters to race away with the win thanks to second half Daniel Tupou, James Tedesco, and Sam Walker tries.

Phillip Sami, Kieran Foran, Brimson and Harley Smith-Shields all failed to finish the game due to injury.
