Bulldogs went into the halftime break with a 6-4 lead.

Halftime Bulldogs 6-4.

To open the second half Manly hit quick through fullback Tom Turbo Trbojevic but Daly Cherry-Evans couldn’t convert the try but Manly had a slim 8-6 lead.

Turbo would go over for a double 4 minutes later and again Cherry-Evans couldn’t convert but Manly has a 12-6 lead.
