Sea Eagles suffer heavy loss in Flegg

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles suffered a 60-20 loss to Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in round eight of the Jersey Flegg competition at Belmore Sportsground today.

Poor discipline and errors saw the Sea Eagles pay dearly in the first half to trail 18-0 after 17 minutes and then 30-6 at half-time.

The Bulldogs ran in 10 tries to four with half-back Brandon Wakeham converting each of the tries.

Promising young Manly prop Keith Titmuss scored his team's opening try in the 32nd minute.

Manly centre Semisi Kioa crashed over out wide for the team's second try before five-eighth Luke Metcalf dashed away for a 60 metre try in the corner.

Metcalf then set up the team's fourth and final try when he put a kick crossfield for winger Bilaal Maarbani to score. Tevita Funa kicked two goals in the loss.

The competition now goes into a two week break.
