Sea Eagles snap losing run in style

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Manly Sea Eagles have emphatically broken a seven-game winless streak, thrashing the Dragons 36-6 at Brookvale Oval.

Manly’s Dylan Walker responded to his axing from the New South Wales team for next week’s final State of Origin clash by scoring two tries in a standout performance.

The Sea Eagles scored seven tries to the Dragons’ one, and the result prevented St George-Illawarra from re-entering the top eight. Manly remains third last with five wins this season.
