Sea Eagles and Tigers set for big Flegg clash

It's the Jersey Flegg Cup match that is more than fitting for a Friday night NRL curtain raiser.

Two of the competition's most in-form teams in the Manly Sea Eagles and the Wests Tigers go head to head in round 12 of the U21s competition at 5.45pm on May 24.

Wests Tigers sit third on the ladder with seven wins from 10 matches while the Sea Eagles sit sixth with six wins.

Furthermore, both teams have won three of their past four matches, with Manly out to make it four straight.

The Sea Eagles have won four of six matches at home this season and head into the game on the back of a a 34-20 win over the Penrith Panthers last weekend.

Manly ran in six tries to four after leading 16-10 at half-time with Broden Konz and Jesse Jackson scoring two tries each in the win. Carsen Patu and Josh Clark also crossed for tries.  Winger Kallum Weatherall-Stacey kicked five goals.

Manly Coach Scott Kenna was very pleased with the team's performance.

"Our middles stood up and were dominate. This allowed (half) Tylor Bunting to play off their back. He turned in his best performance with his running game,'' Kenna said.

"We have kept the same team for the Tigers this week. This is going to be a good challenge and one we are embracing as they have been in great form over the last month."
