The Sea Eagles and Eels are all locked up at 14-14 after a rollercoaster first half at a sold-out Brookvale Oval.

Parramatta burst out of the blocks, but Manly scored 14 unanswered points before the visitors crossed for the final try of a hectic half.

“Who could possibly predict with any confidence what is going to happen next in this one,” Andrew Voss said on Fox League.

Eels winger Maika Sivo scored two tries in the opening eight minutes to stun a pumping home crowd.

Sivo crossed for both tries untouched but with Mitchell Moses sidelined, kicking duties have fallen to Clint Gutherson who missed the sideline conversions.

The Sea Eagles hit back against the run of play when Daly Cherry-Evans put in a kick for Toluatau Koula to fly above the pack and score.

Manly then slotted a penalty to draw level, before Jason Saab did sensationally well to finish in the corner and Reuben Garrick converted to make it 14-8.

“What an amazing turnaround after all the pressure the Eels put them under,” Greg Alexander said on Fox League.

Parramatta centre Tom Opacic finished a well-worked team try in the 33rd minute to lock the scores back up.

MATCH PREVIEW

Manly must win their remaining five games to secure a finals spot and they get back a host of stars against the Eels.

Jason Saab, Christian Tuipulotu, Tolutau Koula, Haumole Olakau’atu and Toafofoa Sipley all return after standing down last week amid the pride jersey controversy.

Marty Taupau starts for Toafofoa Sipley who moves onto the bench alongside Ethan Bullmor.

Parramatta are coming off their best win of the season, beating Penrith 34-10, but without Mitchell Moses (finger) they’ll start slight outsiders.

Jakob Arthur replaces Moses at halfback on the team sheet but Fox Sports understands Clint Gutherson has been training in the halves with Dylan Brown.
