Manly chasing three straight wins in Jersey Flegg

The opportunity to chase three wins in a row in the Jersey Flegg Cup is the exciting challenge facing the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles on Saturday.

The Sea Eagles made it back-to-back wins with a thrilling 27-26 victory over Cronulla at Blacktown last Sunday after being down 16-12 at the break. 

Kallum Weatherall-Stacey got the Sea Eagles home with a field goal three minutes from full-time.

Manly Coach Scott Kenna said it was a great win by the team after an eventful week.

"I was really happy with the resilience the group showed as we had players playing out of position with a massive amount of injuries during the week,'' Kenna said.

"We had two new players in Travis May and Kallum Weatherall-Stacey, who only did two sessions with the group before the game.

"Kallum is a Queensland kid who came to Manly for an opportunity after playing SG Ball for Canterbury last year.

"He went home after last year but felt he wanted another chance in NSW again, so he landed with us at Manly.

"Kallum has fitted in straight away and has embraced the Manly Way. In the short time I have known him, he has shown that is also a terrific young man.

"I also thought our captain in lock Nicholas Lenaz was great in the middle for us with his leadership and non stop attitude right to the end.

"His line break late in the game set up the field goal for Kallum."

The Sea Eagles have now won five of their nine matches to sit 10th. They now take on the seventh placed Penrith Panthers in a wash out catch up game.

"We have a great challenge this week against the Panthers who have been the benchmark in the Jersey Flegg grade for a long time,'' Kenna said.

"Our boys are very keen to go three wins in a row for the first time this year."
