Some tough calls here against Storm who were 12 points up.
Cherry-Evans was awarded a try that was benefit of the doubt, however the ball was lost by him and should have been a No Try.
Then Manly were given possession in the Storm 20 for an adjudged forward pass from Storm, called by the crowd which was clearly not forward.
So the scoreboard said 12-12 which in the end is literally what counts.
Then Glenn Stewart was helped off the field with what looked like a serious knee injury. Rather than holding on for half time Masnly pressed Storm's right hand side and a huge gap opened up between Nielson and Duffie to let Manly through under the sticks.
Storm had the initiative, Manly have responded.
All to play for in the second half.
Massive home crowd found their voice once their team got some points on the board.
