SG Ball season ends on winning note against Manly

Two tries in each half carried the One New Zealand Warriors to a 20-10 victory over Manly Warringah in their season-closing SG Ball clash at Navigation Homes Stadium in Pukekohe on Saturday.

The success in the postponed second-round match enabled the team to finish a creditable ninth on the ladder with eight points from four wins and five losses but not enough to make the playoffs.

Marking their return to the competition after a three-year Covid-enforced absence, the One New Zealand Warriors scored first in their season finale through an converted try by centre Sialetili Faeamani in the third minute before the Sea Eagles responded to lock it up 6-6.

Once standoff Phranklyn Mano-Le-Mamea crossed 10 minutes later, the home side led all the way.

Tries to Rodney Tuipulotu and William Piliu completed the victory.
