NYC: Last time we met v Tigers
Manly Warringah will clash with Wests Tigers at Allianz Stadium this Friday night in a Holden Cup sudden-death semi-final.
The teams met in round 15 this season with the Sea Eagles recording a dominant 44-24 victory at Campbelltown Sports Stadium after the match was transferred from Brookvale Oval the night before.
At the time, the Wests Tigers sat in sixth place with the Sea Eagles in eighth. The win moved Manly Warringah into fifth place.
The Sea Eagles led 24-6 at half-time following tries to Hugh Pratt, Addison Demetriou, Nicholas Hynes, Jesse Ramien.
Further tries to Demetriou and Riley Travers saw the Sea Eagles lead 34-6 before Wests Tigers hit back with three tries to trail 34-24.
The Sea Eagles dug deep in defence in the final 15 minutes and secured victory with tries to Ramien, his second, and Brad Parker. Pratt converted six goals.
The young Sea Eagles received a boost during the week when Liam Knight was cleared to play following a dangerous tackle charge during the defeat to the Panthers.
Kick off is at 5.15pm on Friday 18th September at Allianz Stadium
