SPORT 50 SUNDAY AUGUST 2 2020 Penrith’s Brookie blackout MICHAEL CARAYANNIS scored to eventually 24-6 at halftime. Cleary’s onslaught was only broken by the halftime break. He scored the first try in the second half after regatherin­g his own grubber 10 minutes into the second period. He finished with an 18point haul. Panthers coach Ivan Cleary said his son Nathan was “having a good year.” “He leads our team around. His kicking game was really good,” Cleary said. Walker hadn’t played since Round 6 after suffering a foot injury. His return lasted just 10 minutes after again re-injuring his foot in Manly’s first defensive set. Coach Des Hasler said it was a fracture but in a different part of his foot. The Sea Eagles were dealt a further blow when centre Brad Parker (concussion) came from the field with 10 minutes left in the first half and did not return. Hasler said it was a “serious” concussion and Parker is unlikely to take his place next week with Tevita Funa likely to play. Curtis Sironen (knee) limped from the field with five minutes remaining. He was cleared of an ACL but is in doubt to play the Warriors on Friday. trail A BLISTERING opening 30 minutes by the Panthers led by Nathan Cleary helped Penrith blow away the Sea Eagles 42-12 last night. Manly have made a reputation out of ambushing their rivals at Brookvale. They did it just two weeks ago against the Eels. But not this time around where they finished the game with just 14 players. Penrith – which won its seventh consecutiv­e game – stunned the home crowd, racing in 22 points in the opening half-hour to keep their spot on top of the premiershi­p ladder. Manly’s poor opening started when prop Addin Fonua-Blake fumbled the ball in the opening set of the game and Dylan Walker limped from the field soon after. Cleary’s opening half was sensationa­l, laying on one try, having a helping hand in another plus kicking a 40/20. Rookie winger Charlie Staines scored two of the first three tries, while lock Isaah Yeo took advantage of some poor defensive work in the Sea Eagles’ middle of the field to cross. The Sea Eagles clawed their way back from a 22-0 deficit when Jake Trbojevic We built a race predictor, so you didn’t have to build a race predictor.
