You would have to say Manly got out of jail there in what was a thrilling second half. Parramatta came back strong every time Manly looked like they would pull away, but in the end the class of Manly gets them the two competition points. Tune back in soon for the match report. Thanks for joining us!

Scored by Nathan Peats. Kick to come.

Brilliant from the Eels. Radradra grubbers through the line, regathers and flings it to Hayne in the one motion who finds Peats who crashes over. Momentum appeared to carry him to the line and the video referee agrees.

TEAM NEWS - nothing eventful for the visitors, Parramatta just lose Mitchell Allgood off the bench. David Gower will step up to fill his spot. Manly, however suffer a huge blow with Kieran Foran OUT. Tony Satini replaces him at five-eighth, while Jese Sene-Lefao drops off the five man bench.

Three home games to open the season for the Sea Eagles - admittedly one of them up the road at Gosford, but certainly providing them with an opportunity to open up the season on a good note. Their first Brookvale match in Round 1 saw Melbourne run them down in Golden Point before bouncing back to defeat South Sydney on the Coast. Parramatta meanwhile spanked the Warriors at home before heading across to Moore Park and being on the receiving end of a Rooster resurgence. Manly will go into this hot favourites.
