It didn’t improve there for Manly with Renouf To’omaga adding another try from directly under the posts as Brad Abbey added the extra two.
The former Junior Kiwi was at it again for the home side. This time bustling over from out wide after three Sea Eagles tried to hold him out but to no avail.
The Sea Eagles grabbed a much needed try before the break with rising star Jesse Ramien scoring from out wide after great build up play from Godient. That was the last play of the half as Canterbury-Bankstown took a 18-4 lead into the sheds at half time.

The Sea Eagles soon made amends as Liam Knight broke through the home side's defensive line after a sharp pass from Pita Godinet.
Manly were looking to further close the gap on the home side until an inside pass from Hugh Pratt was intercepted by the ever impressive Chisholm who raced away to score under the posts.
Reimis Smith soon put the match beyond the Sea Eagles with a try in the corner to seal victory for the home side.
Rhys Armstrong and Cade Cust added late consolation tries as the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs ran out as convincing 36-22 winners at Belmore Sports Ground.
