    So, that's six straight wins for Manly. It wasn't pretty but it's a win. Geoff Toovey won't be happy with ball control of his team. Glenn Stewart was great for the Eagles, as was his brother Brett. As for the Warriors, it was another of those confusing performances. So much to play for, yet such an underwhelming performance. 

    That's it for today's live blog. Thanks to those who followed it. Glenn Jackson has just filed his match report from Bluetongue Stadium. It will be on smh.com.au shortly. 

    For those seeking a live blog nightcap, Phil Mitchell will be back shortly before 6.30pm for tonight's Panthers-Cowboys match from Centrebet Stadium.

     

    80th minute: An ingoal scramble results in a referral to the video ref. It looks as though the Warriors will be denied a last-minute try. No try is the ruling and Manly are home. Final score: Manly 27-12

    79th minute: For no particular reason, Daly Cherry-Evans kicks a field goal to give Manly a 27-12 lead. 

    77th minute: That some an impressive show of desperation from Steve Matai. The game is over, but that didn't stop Matai from beating Kevin Locke to the ball in the in-goal area. Matai limits the damage to a line dropout.

    75th minute: David Gower just couldn't contain himself. He could see the line and hoped no-one would notice the double movement. Well guess what David, we all saw it. No try but good effort anyway. That would have been Gower's first NRL try.

    72nd minute: After some confusion following a short line dropout, Manly are awarded a penalty. Jamie Lyon makes no mistake from in front of the posts and Manly lead by 14 points. Any faint hope of a Warriors comeback is now gone. Manly 26-12

    With the game entering the final 10 minutes, any points Manly score will finally put this game to bed. They haven't been great today, but still look set to record a sixth-straight win. 

    63rd minute: So much for a comeback. Manly respond immediately. Glenn Stewart (yes, him again) and Daly Cherry-Evans combine to put Brett Stewart over for his second try of the day. Lyon misses another conversion attempt to keep the Warriors within two converted tries. Manly 24-12.

    61st minute: After a broken play, Shaun Johnson pounced to get the Warriors back into the game. There is no substitute for speed and Johnson has it in spades. After Simon Mannering flicked him the ball, Johnson ran around Kieran Foran with ease. Johnson converts. Manly 20-12 

    Whatever Geoff Toovey said to his players at the break certainly worked. Manly have looked a different team in the first 20 minutes of the second half.

    57th minute: Glenn Stewart and the Wolfman are at it again. After Jamie Lyon failed to connect on his attempte to tap back a bomb, Stewart tapped the ball to Williams who scored his third of the day. Stewart's quick thinking gave Williams an unchecked run to the line. Jamie Lyon coverts. Manly 20-6

    Glenn Stewart's impressive effort so far today will put a smile of the face of Manly fans. When he is fit and firing, Stewart is a top-notch player. If this form can be maintained, it may be just what Manly need to make a run at the title. Most good judges consider them a level below the Roosters, Storm and slumping Rabbitohs at the moment. 

    46th minute: Manly looks a different team early in the second half. The composure that was lacking in the first half looks to be back. Glenn Stewart sets up a try for David Williams with a grubber kick into the ingoals. It is Williams' second try and Stewart's third try assist. Lyon misses again. Manly 14-6

    The second half in underway. Manly got through their first set, as did the Warriors.

    Here is the halftime report from Fairfax Media league writer Glenn Jackson: Anthony Watmough's leg injury will have Manly more concerned than they will be at the scoreboard, although the Sea Eagles aren't exactly comfortable there either. Watmough limped off after 29 minutes. At that stage, the Sea Eagles looked rather comfortable, 10-0 in front.

    The Warriors scored after 32 minutes, through winger Ngani Laumape, to put themselves back into the contest at the break. The Sea Eagles have looked good for much of the contest so far, scoring through Brett Stewart and David Williams, with Glenn Stewart providing the assist on both occasions. But likely without Watmough in the second half, they'll have to work hard for the win.

    This has been a strange match. Manly have dominated field position but can't hold onto the ball. The Warriors have spent plenty of time in their own half and have defended well and trail by just four points. If Manly were their usual disciplined selves this match would be as good as over. Instead the Warriors will be feeling good about their chances. 

    40th minute: Brett Stewart dribbles the ball into touch and the Warriors quickly pack a scrum. Nothing comes of their one play and the siren blows for half-time. Manly 10-6

     

    38th minute: With just a couple of minutes remaining before the break, the Warriors will be happy if the margin stays at four points. George Rose has just spilled the ball. 

    In other news, Anthony Watmough has finally limped his way back to the Manly bench. The poor bloke had to hobble from the far side of the field.

     

    32nd minute:  Talk about a try coming against the run of play. A brilliant scrum move for Manu Vatuvei results in him setting up a simple finish for fellow winger Ngani Laumape. That was a well-constructed try. Shaun Johnson coverts and all of a sudden it is back to a four-point margin. The Warriors have spent 63% of the match in their own half. Manly 10-6

    29th minute: After shaking off his first injury scare, Anthony Watmough now looks to be in real trouble. He has limped off with a lower right leg complaint. I don't think we will see him again today. After the ankle injury suffered by Roosters' back-rower Boyd Cordner on Saturday night, it hasn't been a good weekend for big-name forwards.

    25th minute: An attacking kick goes wrong for the Warriors at one end, David Williams scores at the other end. After Kevin Locke knocks back a bomb, Glenn Stewart grabs it and charges downfield. He then put Williams into position to finish the job. That's six tries in as many games for the Wolfman. After this week's revelations that he only eats raw food, Williams may celebrate tonight with some sashimi and a stick of celery. Jamie Lyon converts. Manly 10-0

    20th minute: Manly march downfield and secure a repeat set. They are making plenty of ground up the middle of the ruck. Manu Vatuvei saves a try by knocking the ball down, but Manly get a scrum feed on the Warriors 20m. In another sign of what is becoming a sloppy game, Jamie Lyon loses the ball on the first tackle. 

    18th minute: Finally some relief for a Warriors. A penalty late in the tackle count gets them into an attacking position for the first time. Can they make something of it? They almost did, but a last-tackle kick just evaded Ngani Laumape. 

    17th minute: Trouble in backplay for the Sea Eagles. NSW forward Anthony Watmough appears distressed but indicates he wishes to continue. On his next hit-up, Watmough loses the ball. 

    13th minute: Try to the Sea Eagles. It was sent to the video ref, but it was never in doubt. Glenn Stewart set the try up, Brett Stewart scored it. Manly are looking very sharp in attack. Jamie Lyon misses the conversion attempt. Manly 4-0

    12th minute: The Warriors haven't conceded a try yet but it only looks a matter of time. Manly are dominating, and have just forced a lice drop-out following a Brett Stewart grubber.

    11th minute: A superb 40-20 from Daly Cherry-Evans, his third of the season, has Manly on the attack.  

    10th minute: Manly are looking dangerous but are yet to complete a set of six. Coach Geoff Toovey won't be happy. 

    6th minute: A lack of support play costs the Sea Eagles a try. Brett Stewart causes confusion in the Warriors defence and slips a ball away but the only players in the immediate vicinity are Warriors.

     

    5th minute: Manly get a penalty and Daly Cherry-Evans takes a quick tap. The Warriors weren't expecting it.

     

    3rd minute: Manly have started strongly, especially in defence. The Warriors beat the Sea Eagles a few weeks back will be hard-pressed to repeat that effort today.

    And they're off. The Warriors receive the kick-off are are running towards the Brisbane Water end of Bluetongue Stadium.

    The now traditional pre-match hugathons have been completed and the two teams are on their way. Manly need to win to remain in third place while the Warriors can move above the Raiders, and into the top eight for now, with a win

    Hello world and welcome to the live blog of today's NRL match between Manly and the New Zealand Warriors.

    Manly have won five in a row, albeit in possibly easiest run possible. Parramatta twice and the Tigers and Titans. Yep, that easy. 

    With players still limbering up on what looks to be a beautiful day on the Central Coast, we have a chance to look at the teams that will do battle.

    There have been a couple of late changes, with impressive Sea Eagles back-rower Justin Horo a late withdrawal due to a calf strain. Jamie Buhrer will start in place of Horo, with James Hassan the new man on the bench.

    A couple of minor changes for the Warriors. Jacob Lillyman will start the match with Ben Matulino dropping back to the bench. Also, Konrad Hurrell is expected to start the match in jersey No 21. Apparently his original jersey (No.4) had a hole in it. Rumours are swirling that  the damage was cause by Hurrell turned on a Doc Bruce Banner-style episode in the change rooms before the game.

     Here is 'Sonny' Phil Mitchell's preview of the match.

    Manly will get a better gauge of where they sit in the premiership pecking order when they face the Warriors. The Sea Eagles have strung together five consecutive victories to rise to third spot but only one – a 38-20 defeat of the Titans at Brookvale Oval – was against a team in contention for the finals. Manly have also racked up big wins against Parramatta (twice), Wests Tigers and North Queensland. The Warriors have won seven of their past nine matches – including an 18-16 defeat of Manly in round 13 – to sit a point outside the top eight. A win could give the Warriors, who haven’t beaten the Sea Eagles twice in a season since 2003, the springboard  to eventually secure a place in the finals. My tip: Sea Eagles by 10.
