That will do us from Leichhardt, an outstanding, dominant performance from the Tigers, who played the conditions perfectly.

Wests Tigers 34-18

79

Last real change for Manly comes and goes, a long kick from Lyon finds Nofoaluma at the back, but he's safe with it and the Tigers will play this out.

Wests Tigers 34-18

SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION MANLY-WARRINGAH SEA EAGLES

TRY MANLY-WARRINGAH SEA EAGLES
Scored by Steve Matai. Kick to come.

Same side, same result for Matai. The left side attack has been a happy hunting ground for the Eagles on an otherwise forgettable afternoon at a wet Leichhardt Oval.

Wests Tigers 34-16

76

Tim Simona down injured after an error. Manly scrum on the Tigers 30m.

Wests Tigers 34-12

UNFORCED ERROR MANLY-WARRINGAH SEA EAGLES
Matt Ballin makes an unforced error.

Manly make awesome metres but Ballin's let it slip, his opposite number picks it up on his own 10m.

Wests Tigers 34-12

71

SUCCESSFUL PENALTY GOAL WESTS TIGERS
Penalty goal attempt by Pat Richards successful.

Things winding down as the rain continues to fall. Some fans already clearing out early, but 16,311 are here. What a turnout. Richards grabs a penalty goal 10m out in front of the sticks.

Wests Tigers 34-12

64

Tigers lose it, and now not more than a couple of plays later Robbie Farah's penalised for tackling Jamie Buhrer off the ball. Replays show it was probably a fair tackle.
...AND MANLY DON'T FIND TOUCH! I think we need Benny Hill theme music here, comedy of errors.

Wests Tigers 32-12

63

UNFORCED ERROR MANLY-WARRINGAH SEA EAGLES
Brett Stewart makes an unforced error.

Kickoff... and Stewart's dropped it. Welcome back, Brett. Tigers scrum 10m out!

Wests Tigers 32-12

UNFORCED ERROR MANLY-WARRINGAH SEA EAGLES
Jamie Buhrer makes an unforced error.

Just not Manly's day, Jamie Buhrer spills it from dummy half. Who knew the Tigers were wet weather specialists?

Wests Tigers 26-6

It's NO TRY. Matai's grounding is no good, it's held up and a turnover. Tigers ball.

Wests Tigers 26-6

VIDEO REFEREE possible Sea Eagles NO TRY to Steve Matai. Checking grounding for Skivvy, has he been held up?

Wests Tigers 26-6

Tigers error mid-field means Manly have a scrum and a shot at attacking now.

Wests Tigers 26-6

Sweeping backline play looking promising for the Tigers until Tedesco spills it in the greasy, wet weather.

UNFORCED ERROR MANLY-WARRINGAH SEA EAGLES

Scored by Jamie Lyon. Kick to come.

Huge controversy here on the halftime siren... well, after it, actually! Jamie Lyon has scored off a beautifully worked play... but it's after the halftime siren! It had gone before the previous tackle and the refs missed it!

Wests Tigers 26-4

Tigers denied a try to Woods, would've been his second, but the video referee says no.

Farah crosses for what looks like a held-up call, but it's actually a penalty to the Tigers for Watmough being offside. Goal attempt...

Wests Tigers 6-0

18

Bad luck for Manly there... another penalty given away, Matai the culprit. Tigers attack.

Wests Tigers 6-0

17

The rain is just teeming down, the ground is packed - never seen so many umbrellas in my life. Manly error inside their own half, Tigers scrum.

Wests Tigers 6-0

13

Great break down the left, Brett Stewart gets in space, stumbles and finds Hiku, who kicks in field. Nofoaluma grounds it in-goal. Dropout Tigers.

Wests Tigers 6-0

12

The last tackle option from the Tigers isn't too good and Josh Starling picks it up for Manly. They get a penalty on the next play to help them out of their own end.

Wests Tigers 6-0

No issues for Pat Richards right near the posts.

TRY WESTS TIGERS
Scored by Robbie Farah. Kick to come.

Robbie Farah grubbers into the in-goal... Manly expect it to go dead, the heavy track slows it and Farah has chased his own kick and SCORED! Not sure why we need the video referee for that, to be honest.

Wests Tigers 4-0

End to end footy in driving rain so far... VIDEO REFEREE possible Tigers try to Robbie Farah. Checking grounding inside the dead ball line.

Good afternoon and welcome to a rain-soaked Leichhardt Oval for that tradition we love - Sunday footy and a muddy hill. Despite the weather, plenty of people have made the 'sacred journey' as we celebrate the Men of League Heritage Round with one of the true rivalries. The Tigers have been indifferent so far this year, most recently succumbing to the Warriors after great wins over Souths and the Gold Coast. Manly are 3-1 in the record books this year, aiming for a fourth straight win after losing only one match this season - by one point in round one. A win for the Eagles could see them leading the competition by fulltime today. Join us for kickoff at 3pm AEST.
