Sea Eagles claim win over Dogs

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have been defeated by the Manly Sea Eagles, 32-6.

After more than 60 days on the sideline, the Bulldogs headed to Central Coast Stadium to tackle the Manly Sea Eagles in the final game of round three.

Dean Pay made one change to his side with Aiden Tolman coming into the 17, replacing Ofahiki Ogden. Tolman was pushed into the starting side with Sue shifting back to the bench.
