Tigers pip Manly 19-18 in thrilling win
August 3, 2009 - 9:29PM
Wests Tigers evoked memories of their fairytale run to the 2005 NRL premiership as they kept the 2009 dream alive with a thrilling 19-18 win over reigning premiers Manly at the Sydney Football Stadium on Monday night.
The Tigers surged to their fourth straight win to close to within two points of eighth-placed Newcastle, the home side forced to do it the hard way after withstanding a spirited Sea Eagles comeback after taking an 18-0 lead to the sheds at half-time.
Tigers skipper Robbie Farah looked like he had sealed victory when he slotted over a field goal for a 19-6 lead just after the hour, but Manly and NSW Origin backrower Anthony Watmough had other ideas as he steamed over from long range to keep the Sea Eagles in the contest.
When Watmough, who continued his rich vein of form with another stunning display, crashed over for his second five minutes from time, it looked like momentum would carry the Sea Eagles over the line.
Matt Orford then shaved the posts with one field goal attempt and had a second charged down by Todd Payten as the visitors desperately tried to take the game into extra time.
But it was the skipper’s final pass over the sideline which ultimately killed off the premiers’ chances and kept alive the Tigers’ as they attempted to match the eight-game winning streak which propelled them into the 2005 finals.
The Tigers were all over Manly early in the contest, but save for a bizarre decision to take the two points from a fourth minute penalty, were unable to convert their ascendancy to the scoreboard.
Manly looked like they had weathered the storm before Benji Marshall turned the course of the match with the first of three magical catches which put the Australian slips cordon to shame, Marshall reeling in a Jamie Lyon kick before outsprinting over-matched chaser George Rose on a 95 metre run to the line.
Tim Moltzen and fullback Shannon Gallant matched Marshall’s slick hands to spark another pair of tries to wingers Beau Ryan and Taniela Tuiaki, the Tigers scoring three tries in the space of nine minutes to stun the Sea Eagles.
Tony Williams finally got the visitors on the board when he turned Tigers defenders into ten pins on a barnstorming 40 metre run 13 minutes after the restart, his wing partner denied five minutes later when David Williams was pushed into touch just before touching down out wide.
