NRL: St George Illawarra 12-10 Manly

Did you hear that loud, fast thudding sound from wherever you’re looking at this? Which had been my heart racing via the last three minutes of this game. Manly looked to make it all finished after Tim Lafai missed a lack of success goal which would have levelled the scores by minutes left for the clock. But a fumble by Manly gifted a predetermined for the Dragons, who scored through Mikaele Ravalawa with two minutes remaining. A shorter start up followed and Manly regained possession with using a minute for taking lead back. Despite Daly Cherry-Evans’ best efforts to convince the referees there’s a problem thanks to them afterwards, the whistle blew together with the home team inside lead as well as Wollongong crowd celebrating.

Dragons’ forward James Graham conceded it had been an approximate game but says his team has specialised in those wins and maintaining their composure towards the end of any game. “Even whenever we lost one or two there, our confidence didn’t disappear completely,” he explained. “Three games happen to be inside a point or two there is sufficient of belief there.”

The Storm and Roosters match has been the pick of the round up to now, which has a golden point field goal to Latrell Mitchell (described in my experience for the reason that “Steve Smith of rugby league” earlier today) just the thing to separate both the teams.
