It was a night of celebration for Sea Eagles supporters at 4 Pines Park on Saturday.
Prior to the NRL's win over the Warriors, the Sea Eagles also recorded victory in the NSW Cup.
The Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles had plenty of reasons to celebrate following an upset 22-16 victory over the North Sydney Bears at 4 Pines Park on Saturday.
With the welcome inclusion of Manly NRL squad members Taniela Paseka, Jorge Taufua, Jamie Humphreys, Kurt De Luis, Ethan Bullemor, Jacob Sykes and Zac Fulton in the team, the Sea Eagles controlled the NSW Cup game from the outset to lead 12-6 at half-time before going on to record a well-deserved victory under Coach Nathan Hogan
Bullemor crossed for two tries in the win with his first four pointer coming after the ball travelled through several pairs of hands in a fine team try.
His second try came after Bullemor showed great desperation to chase down a smart grubber kick from Humphreys to plant the ball down for a 22-6 lead.
The Bears then made things a little nervous towards the end on the back of two more tries to reduce the margin to six points, but the Sea Eagles manned up in defence in the final five minutes to record their second win of the season.
The win moves Blacktown Workers off the bottom of the ladder into 11 position on six points with two wins from 12 games.
The Sea Eagles suffered a 40-22 loss to the Sydney Roosters at 4 Pines Park on Sunday.
The Roosters led 24-12 at half-time with Manly’s tries coming through exciting full-back Kaeo Weekes and skillful young prop James Uesele.
Two tries in six minutes early in the second half to Soakimi Fakaua and winger Sanele Aukusitino saw the Sea Eagles get back to trail 24-22 before the Roosters ran in three more tries to take the win.
The loss leaves the Sea Eagles in 11th position on 10 points with four wins from 12 games.
