Broncos beat Manly in Australia's NRL, prevent Sea Eagles from edging closer to 1st

  • Print

SYDNEY - The Brisbane Broncos led 20-4 at halftime and went on to beat Manly 36-10 Sunday, preventing the Sea Eagles from pulling level on points with the first-place Canterbury Bulldogs in Australia's National Rugby League.

Jack Reed and Dale Copley scored two tries each among Brisbane's seven four-pointers.

The Sea Eagles are level on points with second-place Penrith, but sit in third place due to an inferior points differential. The Bulldogs had a weekend bye.

In the other Sunday match, the New Zealand Warriors all but ended Newcastle's faint playoff hopes with a 38-18 win at Auckland. Warriors captain Simon Mannering celebrated the twin milestones of his 200th game for the club and 100th as skipper with two first-half tries, including one from his own grubber kick.

North Queensland beat an injury-hit Melbourne Storm 22-0. The Storm couldn't overcome the loss of fullback Billy Slater (shoulder) and Cooper Cronk (broken arm) who suffered the injuries playing for Queensland in the first State of Origin match won 12-8 by New South Wales last Wednesday.

"With the players they had out I think it was always going to turn into that sort of game," Cowboys coach Paul Green said.

New South Wales winger Daniel Tupou scored three tries as the defending champion Sydney Roosters beat the Canberra Raiders 26-12, their fifth win in six matches after a winning only two of their first six matches.

The fourth-place Roosters led 18-0 at halftime and coach Trent Robinson wasn't pleased with his team's second-half effort.

"We set it up in the first half, we did a good job for 10, 15 minutes there, then we fell off," Robinson said. "We were not ruthless enough at the end to finish it off."

Penrith beat Parramatta 38-12. The Eels were playing without fullback Jarryd Hayne, who was rested after being named man of the match in the New South Wales' Origin win. Lock Tyrone Peachey scored two tries for the Panthers.

South Sydney hosts St. George Illawarra on Monday to conclude the round. Wests Tigers, Gold Coast and Cronulla joined the Bulldogs with a weekend off.
