17,000 mad Manly supporters have seen their side pressure the league leading Dragons and turn them into a comedy and farce. The Eagles won easily 24-6.
The Dragons were simply never in the contest and were always about ten yards off the pace. It was a brilliant game plan from the Eagles as they took time off the main Dragon ball players.
Big Tony Williams scored a hatrick of tries against Brett Morris whose try scoring feats for once was reversed.
The Dragons are being badly let down by the likes of Jamie Soward, who is playing poorly. The Dragons came across as a one dimensional outfit, and never looked like bridging the gap, one they fell badly behind.
For Manly, it was finally a committed 80 minute effort, led by a defensive effort second to none.
