Caption: Pita Godinet leads Manly out at Brookvale Oval today after being 19th man for the Sea Eagles in Perth yesterday.

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles suffered a 24-22 loss to the Warriors at Brookvale Oval today in round 19 of the Intrust Super Premiership.

The Sea Eagles opened the scoring when a good pass by half-back Pita Godinet saw full-back Peter Schuster cross for a 4-0 lead. Second-rower Dylan Kelly converted from out wide for a 6-0 lead after 14 minutes.

A crossfield kick by five-eighth Issac John on the last tackle saw the Warriors spill the ball for winger Ben Fritz to dive on to score. Kelly converted the try for a 12-0 lead after 20 minutes.

A short pass from dummy half saw Warriors prop Upu Poching crash over under the posts. Half Mason Lino converted to leave the visitors trailing 12-6 after 26 minutes.

The Warriors then produced a great try after a break down the left flank saw full-back Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad score behind the posts. Lino converted for an 18-12 lead to the visitors after 38 minutes.

Second Half

Manly opened the second half with a superb try after a miracle try offload by Schuster to send Cameron Davis over after the winger showed great power and footwork to crash over. Kelly converted from the sideline for an 18-all scoreline after 48 minutes.

A drop ball by Schuster saw Nicoll-Klokstad race 70 metres to score against the run of play to score. Lino converts trey for 24-18 lead with 10 mins to go.

Davis crossed for his second try after receiving a long cut out pass by Godinet. Kelly failed to convert the try to leave the Sea Eagles trailing 24-22 with three minutes left.

A great cut out pass by John saw Ben Fritz dive over to snatch victory for Manly only for the referee to call a forward pass in the 79th minute.

Manly play North Sydney Bears at Brookvale Oval next Saturday at 3pm.
