That's it from us tonight. A comprehensive seven-try effort from Manly gets the home side the chocolates and, with it, the competition lead, at least until tomorrow when the Bulldogs travel to Melbourne to face the Storm. We'll be back tomorrow evening with Ash Gray in the chair for that one. Thanks for your company tonight, and be sure to grab a copy of tomorrow's Herald or log on to smh.com.au for all the wash-up as well as the rest of Australia's best sporting news and analysis. Adios.
