SNAPSHOT OF THE NRL FIRST PRELIMINARY FINAL

Result: Manly 30 bt South Sydney 20 at ANZ Stadium.

Key moment: With the match still in the balance and Manly leading 18-14 just after the hour mark, Sea Eagles winger David Williams performed a more than passable version of a gymnast to score a remarkable and decisive try.

Key quote: "We knew we had it in us, we dug deep," Manly coach Geoff Toovey after his team rallied from an early 14-0 deficit.

Injuries: Manly: Richie Fa'aoso (shoulder/neck), Souths: Bryson Goodwin (hand).

What's next: A grand final appointment for Manly against the winner of Saturday's preliminary final between Sydney Roosters and Newcastle. An off-season of soul-searching for South Sydney as they enter a 43rd year of their premiership drought after successive preliminary final losses.
