Sea Eagles hunting for top four Jersey Flegg spot

Fresh from their best win of the season last week, the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will be out to further push for a top four spot in the Jersey Flegg Cup at 4 Pines Park on Saturday.

The Sea Eagles sit fifth on 20 points with nine wins and take on Fijian team, Kaiviti Silktails, in round 17. The Silktails remain winless on the bottom of the ladder.

A strong and controlled first half by the Sea Eagles saw them lay the platform for a convincing 34-6 victory over South Sydney in wet and miserable conditions at Accor Stadium, Homebush, last Saturday.

It was a clinical performance by the Sea Eagles who had five players missing after being promoted to the NSW Cup team due to a heavy injury toll for the NRL side.

It resulted in Benjamin Keene-O'Keefe, Campbell Munn, Taulauniuotagaloa Mariota, and Jett Jackson coming up from the Manly Leagues Sydney Shield team.

Keene-O'Keefe, Munn, and Jett Jackson handled the step up very well after playing SG Ball Cup for Manly earlier this season.

"I was very proud of the Shield boys and excited about how some of the young SG Ball players performed,'' said Manly Coach Scott Kenna.

"We saw it at training during the week as to how well they understood and grasped our systems and processes.

"We were in control in the first half by doing the simple things right and then came out for the second half really strong for the second week in a row.

"I was really impressed by how the senior players took charge and had full confidence in the younger players. I thought young Jett Jackson played really well on the edge."
