There's not a lot in this match so far. Manly has had one try-scoring chance which they took, and the Warriors had one golden chance to Manu Vatuvei which somehow Manly defused. There's half an hour gone, and it's Manly by 4-nil.
34min - Try to Steve "Beaver" Menzies - Manly lead 8-nil.
Bugger! Right on the stroke of halftime Steve Matai scores - unconverted, so it's 12-nil to Manly at the break.
Double-bugger!! Manly open the scond half with a try by the posts after a couple of promising Warriors attacks - 18-nil Manly, and it's probably a bridge too far for the Warriors now.
53min - Manly have scored again - 22-nil and the Warriors look beaten now.
Triple bugger!!! Not only have Manly scored two more tries, but the laptop has spat the dummy - 32-nil to Manly.
Final score Manly 32; Warriors 6
A comprehensive win to a very good Manly side. Bad luck for the Warriors, but they have exceeded all expectations, and they won't be the salvation of Helen Clark and the Labour Party!!
