NRL – Round 23
Manly’s chances of reaching the play offs are over after a dramatic last minute of the golden point period try from Josh Reynolds for the Canterbury Bulldogs who move up to fourth. Two tries from Brett Morris had helped Canterbury establish a lead but Jorge Taufua’s try converted by Jamie Lyon Brought Manly level at 16-16. It looked like it was heading for a draw but with one minute of the extra period left Reynolds proved the hero for Canterbury.
Brisbane who were struggling a couple of weeks ago got their second straight win thrashing Parramatta 38-16. Two tries either side of half-time from the returning Anthony Milford who controlled much of the game and Corey Oates, who grabbed a hat trick sent Brisbane clear. The Broncos went on to score nine tries and move up to sixth place.Wayne Bennett’s side are very much back in the race.
