Another brutal week for the Tigers as Manly eventually went down 30-4 winners.
The big talking point will be Brent Naden’s second-half dismissal, but there’s little doubt about the decision – it was a hard landing for Jake Trbojevic, who thankfully got up straight away.
“It wasn’t so bad, I think naturally, trying to find the pitch when you’re running to get up and trying to play fast, so it wasn’t a bit of luck for Brent Naden, I think” the Manly Lock said afterwards.
“I know he didn’t mean it, there was no malice there – he was so sorry.”
Manly has won back to back and now sits outside the top eight on points differential alone.
